dmg events launches The Hotel Show Philippines in 2017

15 Nov 2016 by: dmg events dmg events

The event will capitalize on country's thriving hospitality portfolio

Dubai, UAE, 15 November, 2016 - dmg events - Middle East, Asia & Africa, a leading international exhibitions company, has announced that it will launch its successful hospitality event brand in the Philippines in 2017 to capitalize on the Southeast Asian country's growing international tourism and hospitality portfolio. The historic launching will be made in time for the much anticipated opening of its 18th edition next year. The Hotel Show Philippines will take place from 2 to 5 August, 2017 in Metro Manila, while the flagship show will follow in September at the Dubai World Trade Centre in the UAE.

Co-located with WOFEX organised by Tarsus, the largest food show in the Philippines, also turning 18 next year – the two events will provide the biggest food and hospitality showcase in the country's history – occupying its two largest venues: World Trade Center Metro Manila and SMX Convention Center.

Andy Stuart, Vice President, dmg events MEAA, said: “Tailored for the Philippine market, The Hotel Show Philippines will be based on dmg events' successful The Hotel Show Dubai. The Hotel Show Dubai yearly gathers international exhibitors to showcase their hospitality products for restaurants, cafes, bars and hotels, to cite a few. Bringing the Dubai show's undisputed legacy and giving it a local flavor, we are confident that the Philippine version of our highly popular brand will attract the same level of local and global interest and attention. The upcoming opening of our geo-cloned hospitality event in the Southeast Asian nation forms part of our expansion strategy aimed at widening our scope and establishing our presence in key international markets.â€'

The launch comes at a time when there is much buzz around the commercial opportunities being presented in the Philippines' central business districts, including Quezon City, Makati City and Ortigas Center in Pasig City. Metro Manila has the largest hotel room inventory in the country. In a recent report, Colliers International reveals that more than 900 new rooms were completed during the first six months of 2016.  An estimated 3,100 hotel rooms in total are expected to open in this area alone by the end of the year, with new properties including the Conrad Manila and Shangri-La at the Fort being added to its inventory.

Colliers attributes the Philippine market's steady growth mainly to its rising number of international tourist arrivals since 2010. Additionally, it notes the country's potential to become a major tourist destination, resulting in positive outlook and market optimism among property developers and investors.

Ray Tinston, Director of the dmg events' hospitality portfolio, commented: “With an increase in tourism, economic growth, and major improvements to infrastructure such as international airports, the demand for additional hotel, food and beverage outlets in the Philippines is without a doubt continuously growing. Expanding our portfolio to include an annual Hotel Show in Metro Manila will provide a key platform for industry professionals looking to invest in the future of hospitality here.â€'

The announcement followed dmg events' recent move to geo-clone The Hotel Show in Africa, the first edition of which is slated to take place from 25 to 27 June 2017.  Also part of its hospitality portfolio is The Hotel Show Saudi Arabia whose 5th edition will be staged from 4 to 6 April, 2017. For hotel, restaurant, cafe and food service industries, The Hotel Show is the ultimate showcase of the world's leading hospitality solutions.  

The Hotel Show Philippines 2017 will provide a unique opportunity for hospitality professionals looking to do business, network, and learn about the latest trends in the hotel, restaurant, leisure and food service industry in Metro Manila and the wider Philippines.
