HITEC DUBAI POST EVENT REPORT

EXPERIENCE #HITECDXB 2018

THE MIDDLE EAST'S LARGEST HOSPITALITY TECHNOLOGY
EXHIBITION AND CONFERENCE

HITEC DUBAI 2018

We would like to thank everyone involved in making HITEC Dubai 2018 successful, particularly our supporters; Dubai Tourism, and HITEC Dubai Advisory Council, without whom HITEC Dubai would not have reached this new height.

This year marked a new beginning of HITEC Dubai with a close to 200 % increase in the visitor numbers and 30 % increase in the exhibitors compared to the 2017 edition of the show.

We are continuously looking to enhance the visitor and exhibitor experience at HITEC Dubai by inviting industry experts to speak and to share their knowledge and expertise, top hospitality solution providers and new technologies and innovations.

As part of HFTP’s global strategy to promote entrepreneurship in hospitality, we hosted entrepreneur 20X, a startup competition to give startups a chance to present their solutions directly in front of the buyers and investors.

This 2018 Post Event Report demonstrates how the show is continuing to grow and outlines the strategies that we use to deliver the event.

We will be back with a bigger and better HITEC Dubai 2019.
