With Expo 2020 around the corner, Dubai’s hotel market presents one of the world’s most dynamic investment opportunities


As one of the world’s most popular tourism destinations and a vital hub for commerce and trade, Dubai is home to a thriving, dynamic hotel sector that offers remarkable opportunities for savvy investors.

Expo 2020, which will officially open in October this year, represents a landmark moment for Dubai’s emergence as the region’s first true global city. The mega event is expected to attract around 25 million visitors from at least 180 nations, create more than 277,000 new jobs and generate an economic impact of around US$24 billion.

Trade in Dubai is also expected to rise dramatically as a result of Expo 2020.

According to the UAE Ministry of Economy, Dubai’s non-oil foreign trade was worth $353 billion in 2018. Estimates released by government body Dubai Trade predict this figure will reach $1.09 trillion by 2020.

The influx of visitors arriving for Expo 2020 is set to deliver strong gains in terms of hotel occupancies and average daily rates, helping consolidate the hotel market’s status as one of Dubai’s best-performing economic sectors and a vital contributor to the emirate’s GDP.

This exciting period of growth also presents significant opportunities for new and existing investors looking to tap the hotel market’s potential.

As one of Dubai’s most-respected hotel developers, The First Group (TFG) provides clients from across the globe the opportunity to purchase hotel units in its world-class developments, which are located in the city’s most exciting precincts, including Dubai Marina, Business Bay and Jumeirah Village.

The firm fully manages the asset on behalf of its clients in conjunction with the hotel operator, with the latter responsible for securing the highest possible occupancy and room rates, providing clients with peace of mind that their investment is being leveraged to its maximum potential.

This unique investment model is proving hugely popular with investors from around the world, as evidenced by TFG’s significant growth over the past decade.
