Vice President, MEAI, ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions
On the company: We’re part of ASSA ABLOY, a public-listed company with a turnover exceeding $8 billion dollars. Our division is leading in the hospitality and technology sectors, with the provision of access control and back-of-house services, in-room safes, location service solutions, and more.
On products: I’m most excited this year about staff location services, as we offer them an ID which they can carry, and press whenever in distress for rescue.
On The Hotel Show: We’ve been taking part for 14 years and it has been great; we have no regrets whatsoever as we’re always happy with the show and outcome. The Hotel Show has been maturing, for the better, and we’re very excited about the HTNG tie-up, which involved technology speakers and personnel.
On the UAE: The UAE is a very dynamic market when it comes to hospitality, with a growing number of tourists and hotel rooms: this business will surely continue to flourish in the years to come.
