PRESS RELEASE Dubai, UAE 19th September 2016: The Middle East's biggest ever hospitality event is set to launch in 2017 to support accelerated industry growth in the run up to Expo 2020.

‘Dubai International Hospitality Week' – organised by Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) and dmg events– will bring together dmg's The Hotel Show with the launch of DWTC's GulfHost.

The Dubai Tourism endorsed event, set to bring the world of hospitality to Dubai, is anticipated to attract more than 50,000 visitors when it opens at the DWTC in September 2017.

The announcement comes on the final day of the 17th annual The Hotel Show Dubai – the region's most comprehensive showcase of the latest hospitality products and services from hotel build to technology, and everything in-between – which has been running at the DWTC since September 17th and concludes today (19th September).

Ray Tinston, Portfolio Directorof the dmg events hospitality portfolio including The Hotel Show and The Leisure Show, commented: “With more than 10,000 new hotel rooms forecast to open in Dubai each year in the lead up to 2020, the hospitality industry here is one of the fastestgrowing in the world. Dubai is synonymous with innovation and setting trends on a global scale. Dubai International Hospitality Week will provide the ultimate platform for hospitality industry professionals from across the world to do business and network here in the global hub for hospitality innovation – sourcing everything needed to build, develop or maintain a hospitality or foodservice establishment –  whilst learning about the latest trends and what's to come.â€'

DWTC's GulfHost, a hospitality equipment and foodservice expo, with a dedicated showcase of back and front of house hospitality and catering equipment and tableware. “In short, we are showcasing anything purchased by a restaurant, bar or café that isn't edible,â€' said Andrew Pert, Portfolio Exhibitions Director at the DWTC. “The region's hospitality, foodservice and catering industry is continually innovating and investing in all aspects of the preparation and serving of food. The UAE currently has over 6,000 F&B outlets, with another 19,000 expected to open by 2019.â€'

The Hotel Show and GulfHost will run over three days, whilst an extended week of live events will take place around the key hospitality and foodservice exhibitions, including conferences, networking opportunities, and more.
