Some of the UAE’s top interior designers are set to compete at The Hotel Show, taking place September 17-19 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
The event will showcase some of the UAE’s leading interior designers and fit out contractors’ skills as they compete in the event’s newest feature: The Hotel Room Design Challenge.
Competing teams will have a designated space within the event to create their room set design, based on the theme ‘A World of Possibility’, A Lifetime of Stories’.
Visitors at the event will vote for their favourite room set design during the first and second days of the Show, and the winning team will receive an award at the Middle East Hospitality Awards on September 18, held at the Ritz-Carlton, Dubai International Financial Centre.
According to The Hotels Market Report by Ventures Onsite, the “GCC is expecting an additional 58,761 hotel rooms to enter the market in 2019. Dubai’s hotel room supply alone is expected to reach 132,000 in 2019, with the Emirate aiming to complete 160,000 hotel rooms by October 2020.”
The Ventures Onsite Report further predicts that the overall GCC interiors and fit-out spend in the hotel sector is expected to be worth $2,984 million in 2019, and the UAE and KSA emerge as high spenders in interior design and fit-out sector in the GCC.
During the Middle East Design and Hospitality Week 2019, The Hotel Show Dubai will be co-located with INDEX, Workspace, The Leisure Show, Surface Design Middle East, FIM, and INDEX Home.
