Furthermore, FHS World is reinforcing the important role of women in the Middle East’s hospitality industry as the chosen venue to host the semi-finals of the United Nations World Tourism Organisation's Women In Tech Start Up Competition. The event will be held over the first two days of FHS World on the Exhibition Stage.

Jonathan Worsley, Chairman of FHS World organiser The Bench, said: “After delivering a hugely successful FHS Saudi Arabia, we are now fully focused on bringing the biggest, boldest and best Future Hospitality Summit to date to Dubai. 

“Having added The Arena of Madinat Jumeirah to our canvas this year, we have almost doubled our floor space, bringing more opportunities to showcase and celebrate our industry’s achievements and exciting future,” he added.

“Look out for special focuses on technology and sustainability, green buildings and "hotelisation" of real estate. Plus, for the first time, there will be a dedicated Investor Relations Drive where we will connect investors to projects and partners.”
