Dubai International Hospitality Week set for 2017

Posted: 04-Oct-16 12:33

As part of its ongoing evolution into a major tourist destination, Dubai will host the Dubai International Hospitality Week in September of 2017. The event will showcase hundreds of vendors connected to the travel industry, such as restaurants and hoteliers. The annual event is part of Dubai’s campaign to become the world’s most visited city.

Dubai International Hospitality Week set for 2017

Dubai — which continues to be a major travel destination for visitors around the world—will be the site of one of the tourism industry’s largest events, the Dubai International Hospitality Week, which is set for September of 2017. Sponsored by Dubai World Trade Centre and Dubai Tourism, the event is expected to draw roughly 50,000 visitors.

The announcement of next year’s event comes at the close of the 2016 Hotel Show Dubai, an annual event which showcases travel-related industries, including hoteliers, restaurants, bar owners, and food service wholesalers.

Once a small fishing village, Dubai has become one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations, with travel professionals predicting that 10,000 new hotel rooms will open each year until 2020. Known for innovative architecture and luxury shopping, Dubai has one of the fastest-growing hospitality industries in the world, as well as one of the world’s busiest airports.

With the number of tourists who travel to Dubai certain to increase, hosting a platform for the hospitality industry was an obvious choice for Dubai World Trade Centre and dmg events.

Once a desert outpost, Dubai has transformed itself in a relatively short time into the bustling tourist hub of the UAE. Everything, it seems, is bigger and glitzier in Dubai. Known throughout the world for its man-made islands and massive buildings, such as Burj Khalifa—the world’s tallest structure—Dubai is a mecca for luxury travellers, in particular.

As a central part of the government’s plan to keep foreign revenue flowing into the emirate, Dubai has fashioned itself as one of the world’s shopping capitals.

The 2017 event is expected to last over the course of three days with dozens of vendors and exhibitions, with an extended weeklong schedule of live events. Dubai Tourism ultimately plans for Dubai to become the world’s most visited city by 2020, with tourist dollars making up a significant portion of the city’s economy. The city already welcomes tourists at the rate of approximately 6 visitors per resident, and the number of travellers to Dubai has increased steadily each year since the mid-2000s.
