Global Hotel Industry to Reach $847.8 billion by 2015

altGlobal Hotel Industry to Reach $847.8 billion by 2015 Property renovation and luxury repositioning increasing as global economy improves With the industry forecasted to have a value of $847.8 billion by 2015 according to recent industry reports by Hotels & Motels: Global Industry Almanac, emerging markets  such  as  the Middle East are being highlighted as significant  regions driving  growth.  

In  addition to new properties currently under  construction, increased  focus  in the region is on renovation of existing hotels  to  deliver enhanced luxury and eco-luxury hospitality offerings, a trend being witnessed by The Hotel Show, as luxury exhibitors confirm attendance at this year's event.

Running  from  15th  -  17th  May 2012 at the Dubai International  Convention  & Exhibition Centre, the largest hospitality supplies event in the Middle East and North  Africa attracts exhibitors from around the world looking to tap into  the extensive regional opportunities.

"An  absolute  outcome  of an improved market is renovation.  Hotel  chains  are enhancing brand standards and dealing with the ramifications of deferred capital expenditure experienced over the past couple of years," said Frederique Maurell, Events  Director  for  The  Hotel Show. "One of the exciting  elements  to  this renewed growth is the diversity we are seeing in the re-fits.

responsible  suppliers  emerging  to  cater  to  a  new  generation  of   luxury

Primary  renovation  projects being conducted by leading  hoteliers  around  the region  include  renovation and refreshment of lobbies,  restaurants,  bars  and fitness centres, and the upgrading of beds, electronics and soft furnishings  in
guest  rooms.   Among the exhibitors at the show, seeking to capitalise  on  the
opportunities  are  Sambonet  Paderno Industries SpA,  Italian  manufacturer  of crafted  flatware  and  hollowware in stainless steel & silver  plate;  interior design  specialist Nakkash Gallery; avantgarde furniture design specialists  Baa and eco-luxury furniture manufacturer Casa Shamuzzi.

Spain's top exporter of auxiliary furniture Andreu World will also be showcasing its  prestigious contemporary avant-garde designer tables and chairs with recent refurbishment  projects including Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah  Resort  &  Spa  and Radisson Blue Hotel.

New  to the event this year, the Middle East Hotel Awards, will be held on  15th May and will focus on recognising the innovations, developments and achievements within the hotel & hospitality industry.
