    The show is getting better every year. Last year, we signed a deal with Tuscany and this year too we are looking for suppliers. We are the only company in KSA introducing international hotel brands into the country. We are opening Hilton Jeddah in the upcoming months and there is one more hotel in Jeddah in our pipeline.

  • SAUDI OGER LTD

    We are a facility management company and work with the Government to construct buildings for government employees, VIP guests and government offices. For this, it is important that we keep an eye on the latest trends and market prices. This is my first visit to the show and it’s great to be here for getting information about hotel equipment and furnishings. Events like these help us a lot to increase our knowledge.

  • BELJIO RESORT

    This is my 3rd visit to The Hotel Show. The reason I visit every year is that I always find something new here. Being in the food industry, it is important to have new ideas and to be updated with new trends. This year, I have been introduced to non-alcoholic beer, which is quite appealing. Over all, the show is a great learning platform.

    I am very satisfied with my visit and have recommended the show to my colleagues. The show is an informative source for us to keep ourselves updated with the latest trends, which is essential to my job. We have to try new things as this is important for our business’ growth. With what we learnt at the show, we have introduced new designs and new innovations with the use of the latest technology.
