Welcome to HOTEC Middle East 13
HOTEC13 Middle East
On behalf of the Questex-McLean Events team, I would like to welcome you to the 10th edition of HOTEC Middle East.
We are pleased to be celebrating this landmark event in the company of some of the industry’s key players in the region. Since the first HOTEC Middle East in 2004, this event has brought together hundreds of companies and senior executives to meet, talk business, network and build long lasting relationships. I am confident that this year’s HOTEC will help to open many new doors for everyone here.
It is a pleasure to welcome back many delegates who have experienced HOTEC in the past and who have made HOTEC Middle East one of the must-do events in their calendars. Your presence here is testimonial to your belief in the event, and we thank you for returning. Likewise, we are pleased to greet all delegates joining HOTEC for the first time. The team is at your disposal to offer any assistance you may need to ensure that you get the most out of your participation.
Despite economic and political turmoil in and around the region in recent years, the hospitality industry in the Middle East region remains vibrant. I hope that HOTEC Middle East 2013 will play an important part in the success of your business in the region.
I would like to extend a warm welcome to our keynote speaker Guy Wilkinson, Managing Partner at Viability. Guy will provide us with an update of hotel developments in some of the region’s major cities. A warm welcome also to our media partners, Hotelier Middle East. Jacqueline Daly, editor of HotelierMiddleEast.com, will chair the panel discussion on Saturday morning. The chosen topic is sure to generate some lively debate, and we look forward to welcoming all of you to this session. Special thanks to all of our speakers and panellists.
