The team behind a number of high-profile hospitality and design events in the region, including The Hotel Show, this week announced global expansion plans for 2017.
Dubai-based DMG Events has launched new events in South Africa, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Indonesia and the Philippines.
In a statement, the companu said that the global expansion represents the rise of Dubai’s hospitality and design industries, whilst offering a gateway to UAE-based suppliers in these industries who want to expand internationally.
Andy Stuart, vice president of DMG Events’ design and hospitality division, commented: “Next year promises to be an incredibly exciting year for our entire event portfolio. Dubai – our base and the home of our ‘mothership’ shows, which themselves will grow significantly next year – is a place synonymous with innovation, creativity and building cities of the future. It makes us proud to say that our events are part of its story.
“Our ambitious international expansion plans mark the latest chapter in that story. Moving new shows into South Africa, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the Philippines and Indonesia allows us to provide direct gateways from Dubai to lucrative global markets, creating excellent opportunities for UAE businesses seeking to explore new territories and further strengthening our much-loved brands.”
