Assa Abloy, a global supplier of intelligent lock and security solutions, is this year focusing on mobile guestroom keys at The Hotel Show Dubai, running until today (20 September) at Dubai World Trade Centre.
The company has been working on making mobile key technology more user friendly over the past three years, and believes this is the future of guestroom keys.
Speaking to Hotel News at the event, Manit Narang, vice president Middle East & Africa, Assa Abloy, said: “We are promoting our mobile access and are putting a lot of focus on this right now because we see that soon the hotel key card will be replaced with mobile key.
“It’s like you see in the airline industry with the boarding pass and even hotel bookings are done with mobile phones, so we see the mobile key as the future of the hotel industry and we will have all our products compatible with mobile key.
“This is the first show that all of the demos we are doing we are not using a plastic card to do them but cell phone.”
In addition to mobile key technology, Assa Abloy has been showcasing new drawer safes and mini-bars at the show.
Visit Assa Abloy at hall 7, stand D289 at The Hotel Show at Dubai World Trade Centre.
The Hotel Show, organised by DMG Events, is part of Dubai International Hospitality Week running from 18 – 20 September 2017.
