The Government-led initiative seeks to double the number of hotel rooms in the Kingdom by 2030 to cater for a surge in tourists. This year, a JLL report prepared ahead of The Hotel Show Saudi Arabia 2016 forecast that Jeddah’s hotel room inventory alone will double by 2018.

“Saudi Arabia is one of the Middle East and Africa’s top hotel construction hotspots with more than 140 projects in the pipeline,” commented John Suzara, Event Manager of The Hotel Show Saudi Arabia 2017. “The Hotel Show is providing the most comprehensive showcase of the products and services required to develop a new or existing hotel or restaurant here.”

Suzara added: “Some of the most popular sectors at the annual Hotel Show edition in Saudi Arabia are technology, interiors, lighting and design, cleaning and laundry, and advancements in HORECA for: hotels, restaurants and cafes.

Saudi Arabia’s infrastructure already includes the largest mosque in the world. The world’s biggest hotel, Abraj Kudai, is forecast to open 10,000 rooms to the public in Makkah next year.

“2017 is a great time for suppliers and distributors to make a name for themselves in the Saudi Arabian market,” commented Yan Wang, Event Director of Stone & Surface Saudi Arabia. “The Kingdom already has some of the world’s largest hotels, universities, hospitals, and Jeddah Tower, currently under construction, is projected to become the world’s tallest building.”

The Hotel Show Saudi Arabia 2017 is set to continue its momentum as the Kingdom’s leading event for 1000s of hospitality industry professionals to source new products, network and learn about the latest industry trends.
