At least 100 exhibitors and over 1,000 hospitality professionals are set to gather at the SMX Convention Center from 2 to 5 August for the much anticipated The Hotel Show Philippines.
The Hotel Show Philippines, newly introduced and cloned from the highly regarded The Hotel Show Dubai will gather international exhibitors and hospitality professionals looking to meet new suppliers and source alternative products and services for the hotel, restaurant, leisure and food service industry.
“With accelerating hospitality tourism, construction and leisure industries in the Philippines, The Hotel Show Manila offers a diverse and pioneering experience for both exhibitors and visitors wanting to connect, network and do business,” organizers said.
Baby de Luna Landan, corporate planning and business development officer of the Tourism Promotions Board, was quoted by organizers as saying that the event is being brought to Manila at an opportune time as the country maintains its economic momentum.
“The continuous growth of tourism arrivals has helped propel the projected growth of Metro Manila hotels in the next three years,” Landan said.
Joey Bondoc, research manager at Colliers International, was also quoted as saying that The Hotel Show Philippines “is a fitting opportunity to highlight the growing hotel and leisure opportunities in the Philippines.
The Hotel Show Philippines will be co-located with the World Food Expo (WOFEX) organised by PEPTarsus, the largest food show in the Philippines which will turn 17 next year. Together, they will provide the biggest food and hospitality platform in the country’s history, occupying its two largest venues, namely the World Trade Center Metro Manila and SMX Convention Center.
“Tailored for the Philippine market, The Hotel Show Philippines will be based on dmg events’ successful The Hotel Show Dubai. The Hotel Show Dubai yearly gathers international exhibitors to showcase their hospitality products for restaurants, cafes, bars and hotels, to cite a few. Bringing the Dubai show’s undisputed legacy and giving it a local flavor, we are confident that the Philippine version of our highly popular brand will attract the same level of local and global interest and attention,” said Andy Stuart, Vice President, dmg events MEAA.
The upcoming opening the geo-cloned hospitality event in the Southeast Asian nation forms part of dmg events’ expansion strategy aimed at widening the scope and establishing its presence in key international markets. – BusinessNewsAsia.com
