Dubai Hotel Show sees boom in visitors

This year’s Hotel Show in Dubai has been bigger than ever – a clear sign of the international appeal of the emirate and its thriving hotel industry. More than 15,500 industry professionals took part in the event, marking a rise of 9% in numbers on 2011. The 13th edition of the event earlier this month brought together over 450 hotel suppliers and consultants from more than 45 countires. Visitor numbers from Saudi Arabia were up by 30%, recording the biggest increase, while organisers also saw a rise in visitors from elsewhere in the Middle East; Egypt, Qatar, Turkey and Oman.
