Abu Dhabi hotel occupancy levels will soar during the World Future Energy Summit which takes place in the emirate later this month.
The summit on January 18th -21st is expected to welcome 20,000 visitors. Staff supporting more than 600 exhibitors will also need accommodation.
Among the hotels expecting a surge in guests during the exhibition is the Aloft Hotel, which is linked to the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, the venue for the summit.
Rene Camilleri, director of sales and marketing of Aloft Abu Dhabi, said that the hotel was fully booked for the event. "We are delighted with the synergy that Aloft and ADNEC have developed during these couple of months; the fact that we have an occupancy rate of 100 per cent yet again, re-enforces the acceptance the hotel has had since our soft-launch in October."
The Shangri-La also announced that it is expecting occupancy levels to be over 90 per cent for the summit.
Sanjay Tanna, business development and investment director of the Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company, said that high predicted occupancy levels reinforced Abu Dhabi's position as a global hub for exhibitions and events.
The World Future Energy Summit is a platform for industry leaders, investors, scientists, specialists, policymakers and researchers to discuss the challenges of rising energy demands as well as actions to achieve a cleaner and more sustainable future for the world.
