The 22nd edition of The Hotel Show is coming to Dubai in May

The Hotel Show, the annual celebration of the industry’s greatest names, brands and talents, is returning to Dubai for its 22nd edition.

Taking place at the Dubai World Trade Centre from May 24-26, the event has grown to become one of the largest and most prestigious for hospitality in the Middle East and Africa.

“The hosting of The Hotel Show Dubai is testament to Dubai’s ability to organize world class international events while positioning Dubai as a global city that is open, safe and accessible for UAE residents and leisure and business travelers. Over the past year, Dubai’s hotel sector has performed remarkably well, further accelerating momentum across the city’s travel and tourism industry. As a platform where F&B and Hospitality professionals can come together and really connect, and knowledge share and learn from each other, The Hotel Show will reaffirm Dubai’s position as a must-visit global destination,” said Hoor Al Khaja, associate VP of international operations at Dubai’s Department of Economy and Tourism.

With its supporting partners, including Dubai’s Department of Economy and Tourism, HAMA (Hospitality Assets Managers Association) and The Dubai Restaurant Group, the three-day experience serves the industry by showcasing innovative products, content, features and inspiration while acting as the definitive link for hospitality suppliers across the world looking to access the lucrative MEA market. Across the event, there will be a range of conferences, seminars and features offering visitors education, in-depth analysis and inter-industry debates, helping to drive the industry forward.

Key speakers include Amit Nayak, vice president asset management at Dubai Holding MEA, Khalid Anib, CEO of Abu Dhabi National Hotels PJSC, Olivier Harnish, the senior strategy advisor of Ministry of Tourism of Saudi Arabia, Naim Maadad, the chief executive of Gates Hospitality and board member of the Dubai Restaurants Group, Tariq Valani, the senior vice president IT of India, Middle East, Africa & Turkey at Accor and Giuliano Gasparini, the associate director of ALDAR and board member of HAMA Middle East.

“Dubai has become a beacon of hope for the industry in the wake of the pandemic, its recovery by far exceeding many of the world’s most renowned destinations. So, to host this event here is not only inspiring but gives industry players access to the very people on the ground making this recovery possible. Furthermore, events like The Hotel Show also provide an excellent environment for networking, as professionals in the hotel industry are increasingly competing in a market that is characterized by sustainable design, smart hotels and innovative branded experiences,” said Jasmeet Bakshi, group event director of The Hotel Show.

Some of the many conferences available to badge holders include The Hospitality Leadership Forum, The HITEC Dubai Conference and The Hospitality Lifestyle, Wellness and SPA summit, the newest addition to the roster.

From culinary experiences to exciting live challenges, The Hotel Show aims to celebrate the industry’s unsung heroes and driving forces behind the hospitality sector, with features including the Housekeepers League of Champions and The Chef’s Table.

The F&B Stakeholders Summit 2022 will bring leading industry experts and practitioners together for a series of highly focused and candid live discussions that reveal plans and strategies for the next year and beyond, as the industry moves into a period of dramatic innovation.

Furthermore, the Chefs Table will be back for a fifth edition at The Hotel Show Dubai 2022 with a bigger competition and more participants. With the Waterfront Market, managed by Ithra Dubai, as the official partner for the second year in a row, nine culinary teams from some of the regions’ leading hotels will go head-to-head over three days to produce a stunning five-course meal in the hope of winning the coveted title of Hotel Culinary Team of the Year. Organized and managed by The Emirates Culinary Guild, the event is in its fifth year and will once again produce some amazing dishes for our VIP guests to enjoy.
