The Hotel Show Dubai will celebrate its twentieth edition during the Middle East Design and Hospitality Week 2019 which will be held from 17th to 19th September at Dubai World Trade Centre. The landmark event that has evolved in tandem with the GCC’s leisure and hospitality sector, over the last two decades, will be a confluence of key discussions and important industry decisions.
According to the GCC Hospitality Report from Alpen Capital, "GCC hospitality market is projected to reach $32.5 billion in 2022". A strong increase due to the imminent inauguration of Expo 2020 in Dubai and other major global events that will be hosted in the region. The Hotels Market Report by Ventures Onsite indicates that about 25 million visitors will probably arrive in the UAE for Expo 2020 in preparation of which "Dubai’s hotel room supply is expected to reach 132,000 in 2019, with the Emirate aiming to complete 160,000 hotel rooms by October 2020".

The Report anticipates that the UAE will continue to lead the GCC's luxury hospitality segment till 2022 with "73% of existing luxury hotel stock and 61% of the region's pipeline located in the country". During this time period, the Report also predicts that "KSA will will witness the most significant increase in luxury hotel supply”.
Besides the Kingdom’s push towards growing into a leisure and entertainment hub in the region, “the cornerstone of KSA’s inbound tourism will be the annual pilgrimages of Hajj and Umrah, which are estimated to increase to 30 million visitors collectively”, reveals Ventures Onsite.
The GCC tourism industry has also seen an increase in the number of "millennials" travellers in recent years. A trend that is expected to continue to increase and for which the hospitality sector in the Middle East is ready to meet.
Nathan Waugh, Portfolio Director - dmg events Hospitality Division said:

"The GCC’s hospitality sector is focused on putting the best foot forward when tourists from around the world visit the UAE for the Expo event as well as other international attractions scheduled to take place in the GCC. The Hotel Show Dubai, true to its legacy, will be a confluence point for the GCC’s hospitality sector to align on best practices and the way forward for the industry that is at the threshold of a fresh boom. And the best part of the Show this year is that it is co-located with six other events catering to sectors that complement the hotel industry”.
