Dubai is set to welcome a new hospitality event – The Dubai International Hospitality Week, organised by Dubai World Trade Centre and dmg events.
The Dubai International Hospitality Week will bring together The Hotel Show alongside the launch of DWTC’s GulfHost.
The new event has already been given the seal of approval by Dubai Tourism and is anticipated to attract more than 50,000 visitors when it opens at the Dubai World Trade Centre in September 2017.
The Hotel Show and GulfHost will run over three days, whilst an extended week of live events will take place around the key hospitality and foodservice exhibitions.
Commenting on the new launch, Ray Tinston, portfolio director of the dmg events hospitality portfolio including The Hotel Show and The Leisure Show said: “With more than 10,000 new hotel rooms forecast to open in Dubai each year in the lead up to 2020, the hospitality industry here is one of the fastest growing in the world. Dubai is synonymous with innovation and setting trends on a global scale. Dubai International Hospitality Week will provide the ultimate platform for hospitality industry professionals from across the world to do business and network here in the global hub for hospitality innovation – sourcing everything needed to build, develop or maintain a hospitality or foodservice establishment – whilst learning about the latest trends and what’s to come.”
DWTC’s GulfHost, a hospitality equipment and foodservice expo, with a dedicated showcase of back and front of house hospitality and catering equipment and tableware. “In short, we are showcasing anything purchased by a restaurant, bar or café that isn’t edible,” said Andrew Pert, Portfolio Exhibitions Director at the DWTC. “The region’s hospitality, foodservice and catering industry is continually innovating and investing in all aspects of the preparation and serving of food. The UAE currently has over 6,000 F&B outlets, with another 19,000 expected to open by 2019.”
