Overview

 
 

The 21st century hospitality is all about being open to innovative ideas and adopting the most current & cost-effective technology solutions; to deliver an unprecedented experience to the hotel’s most important asset: ‘The Guest’.

The Hotel Technology Summit aims to reveal the latest technology trends that are impacting the hotel industry. It provides a platform for hotel technology experts to discuss a comprehensive range of topics including; New & Innovative Technologies, Mobile Technology, Artificial Intelligence based Technologies, Device and Entertainment Autonomy and more.

The summit is hosting global leaders in hotel technology solutions and innovative product manufacturers; who are meeting more than 120 decision makers looking to source technology solutions for their existing and upcoming hotel properties across the region, and specifically in Saudi Arabia and UAE.

Unlike a traditional Trade-Show or Expo, this 2-day summit incorporates interactive panel discussions, keynote presentations, case-studies and pre-scheduled one-to-one meetings between hoteliers and technology providers — all in a focused 5-star business-to-business environment.

It is taking place on 13 November 2016 in Dubai
and 21 March 2016 in Riyadh.

Meeting with important buyers was one of the positive outcomes of this summit.

We met some new prospective clients that we could have probably not able to meet and with whom we certainly hope to do business.

This summit helped us to make new contacts as well as reconfirm our presence in the market.

We met new consultants/specifiers which created new opportunities to get our brand specified across several projects. We also have planned meetings after the event.

naseba has a very good on-site team who assisted us with back-to-back meetings.
