What’s on in 2019
The Middle East Housekeeper’s League of Champions
The Middle East Housekeeper’s League of Champions has become an integral part of The Hotel Show over the past two years, proving popular with visitors who turn up in their hundreds to watch the teams competing with one another in sprucing-up ransacked rooms. Due to this success, the competition will be back for the 2019 edition of the show, providing the housekeeping teams – who are a vital part of any hotel and are often the unsung heros – the opportunity to showcase their skills and the technicalities involved in proper guest room cleaning and maintenance.
The Middle East Hospitality Leadership Forum
A central feature of The Hotel Show, The Hospitality Leadership Forum is a free to attend series of forthright panel discussions addressing the key strategic opportunities and challenges that are shaping the regional sector at this time of accelerated expansion and change.
The agenda is developed in close consultation with the region’s leading hotel general managers and offers the audience a rare insight into how they think, how they create, manage and develop critical elements of their properties, how they view the current market and what they’re planning next.
The Chef’s Table
The Chef ’s Table, debuted at the 2018 edition of the show, with selected teams from leading hotels and restaurants being pitted against one another in front of hundreds of visitors. The competition was judged by 4 expert chefs, led by Chef Uwe Micheel, President of the Emirates Culinary Guild and each 3 hour battle saw 3 full meals created, cooked and presented to a table of VIPS each day.
The competition will be back for a second edition at The Hotel Show Dubai 2019 and we are looking forward to a bigger competition with many more participants.
The Middle East Hospitality Awards
The annual Middle East Hospitality Awards is staged during The Hotel show and celebrates the achievements, innovation and excellence of the Middle East’s ever expanding hospitality industry over the past 12 months. The quality and volume of entries that are received for the Awards are an impressive testimonial of the expanding list of hospitality offerings that are on par with international standards.
