Unique Precise International will be supporting this year’s Hotel News ME Procurement Conference by exhibiting on 19 October 2015 at the Grosvenor House, Dubai.
CEO Vinayak Mahtani explained why the company will be joining the event.
Why is it important for you to be a sponsor of this event?
This is a great opportunity for us to meet with decision makers and influencers of most major hotels and hotels chains in the UAE, outside of their office with out the usual distractions.
How will your sponsorship add to the conference?
With our product range on offer we are a one stop solution for guest room OSE products. We represent complimentary brands from Gilchrist and Soames for bathroom amenities, Brinkhaus for bedding, standard textile for bed and bath linen, Majestic for bathrobes and Brent Wood for wardrobe accessories. Its an ideal solution for any purchase manager.
What are the most pressing issues for you the in the Hospitality industry today?
The perception of cost seems to takes priority in Dubai and for many years people have been focusing on the cost of a product as opposed to looking at the quality. We like to engage in dialogue with our clients showing that the cheapest item is not always the best. For example in our linen we talk about cost per use rather than the sole cost of the product. Our towels for example save the customers about 30% of the total cost. We have noticed over the past months that Purchase Managers are starting to understand this and also moving in this direction.
Why do you believe it is important for the industry to meet at such events?
This event is probably the only time of the year that you can get 150 top purchasing managers in a room together; this will result in improvement. When they speak about new products and innovations it can only help the industry. It is also ideal for us to showcase our new products.
What product innovation do you look forward to sharing with conference delegates?
We have with Brinkhaus a patented technology called Rhombo Fe. Out of this we have made a mattress topper, and when compared to the conventional topper, proves to be more cost effective and enhances the sleep quality. Basically you can reduce the cost of a mattress and use this topper and have the same or a better sleep. The topper is also completely washable and allows you to breathe.
