Good morning everyone, hope all of you are having a great week so far! Today’s post features hotels, new trends, Dubai’s long-term vision, the future of the hospitality industry and a major global initiative – all from a unique perspective. Residential and commercial spaces have often been discussed for a long time now, in terms of its sustainability, promoting a productive environment, aesthetic trends, integration of communities and more, however, the way hotels are being designed has become one of the hottest topics in the architectural world.

With Expo 2020 coming up, the hospitality industry is seeing more opportunities than ever. A sudden boom in the demand, means that there is an expectation to have over 100,000 more hotels rooms added in the next 4 years. It hence comes as no surprise that discussing strategy, new trends and exciting possibilities is on everyone’s agenda. With the focus on the future exponential growth of the region along with the challenges and opportunities it brings, the increased emphasis on the hospitality sector means professionals are adapting a new approach, focus and reach while also factoring in new forms of sustainability, affordable hotels and catering to a wider demographic’s taste.

To allow a vast majority of the hospitality industry to come together, to discuss the future of the hospitality scene and network with industry heavy-weights, The Hotel Show Dubai, is one of the most important annual events which plays a significant part in driving the hospitality sector by bringing hoteliers together and facilitating partnerships, improving market analysis and ensuring alignment with Dubai’s overall tourism vision. Launched last week, I got an insider’s view of the creative solutions and major strides the hospitality industry is making in the way of innovation, hi- tech implementation, sustainability and improvements in the world of F&B. Packed with exhibitors, the show was a coming together of global product suppliers bringing in niche offerings and trends that combined sustainability and creativity.

The Vision conference, an integral part of the Hotel Show, plays an important role in contributing to shape and drive Dubai’s hospitality sector and in turn our tourism industry, a key pillar of the economy. The event provides a platform for hoteliers and industry figures to come together, share ideas, discuss investment and partnership opportunities along with strategies on moving forward. With Dubai at the heart of this region’s hospitality development, the event becomes an annual meeting place bringing together buyers, architects and suppliers for business, networking and education. There were also experts and thought leaders from around the world participating in The Vision Conference making the event an unrivaled business and education opportunity for the whole hospitality sector. Did any of you get to visit some of the panel sessions?

Hotels and hospitality have a great part to play in realizing Dubai’s Tourism Vision for 2020, which aims to welcome 20 million visitors per year by the start of the next decade. During the Vision conference and the host of speakers present, it became instantly apparent that one of the current problems faced by the hotel industry is the diversity in resort style projects, accommodation for children under the age of 4 and hike in the population, increased emphasis on sustainability and variety with F&B. More importantly, one of the speakers had mentioned that the use of technology as a baby-sitter is a growing problem. Sounds familiar, right? 

The biggest advantage the Dubai hotel industry has is their resorts serve as a multi-functional platform catering to the diversity of needs – they become a hotel, exhibition space, event venue and after everything … also a resort. This, however, is just the beginning and to take Dubai to the next level in the way of world-class experiences, they have innovated across the board. Key developments across various facets of the hospitality industry include:

Food & Beverage

Emerging trends in Dubai restaurants and menus include sharing options, the modernization of older classics, street food, and other cuisine from Africa, Cuba, the West Indies and Asia. Some popular options also feature the consumption of more green vegetables and healthier food, infused teas, smoked, raw or super foods. Dubai’s emerging consumer is tired of air-conditioned commercial enclosures, brand shopping and fine dining, hence outdoor restaurants which are great social spaces have brought in the much desired real, street life and culture. Lots of you may have had a taste of this by Boxpark and Citywalk right? (Pun intended btw!)

Sustainability

Highlighting what the future of the industry looks like, this year a special feature area was devoted to hotel architecture, sustainable development, next-generation technologies, new frontiers with self-powered energy buildings and materials which provide a crystal ball insight into what the industry has potential to achieve. Innovative trends including climate protection solutions such as ventilated facades articulated according to building orientation, surfaces that integrate various regenerative energy production methods, geothermic systems, photo voltaic and photo catalytic materials were spotlighted. Materials and technologies of latest generation are intelligent, interactive and above all are low environmental impact materials which paired with organic forms truly reduce the overall carbon footprint, while additional features include natural ventilation for self-cleaning windows, a photo catalytic façade to purify the air and a building shell treated with photo voltaic paint to provide energy.

Lighting

Ambiance enhancements have long dictated the overall impact of a space on visitors. Fine details such as lighting had heavily featured at the show which included LED back-lit sheet panels that provide versatility and were used as a base for truly marvelous aesthetics, along with elaborate custom fixtures in stilted bronze inspired by nature.

Technology

Rooms are now automated to the point where everything can be controlled from heating to lights to curtains, unique experiences include 3D cinema screens or waterproof LED TV’s in bedroom and bathroom mirrors and customized music libraries with surround-sound music. Guest security is also being heightened with the launch of innovative new products including fingerprint and facial recognition methods for room entry. A concept which is extremely popular in hotels abroad, as many of you may have experienced. If you have, then do leave your thoughts on the effectiveness of it below.

The Hotel show also witnessed the announcement of several new projects being built, in the region. This included:

The hotel sector in general is the backbone of Dubai’s tourism industry, contributing to 7.1% of the city’s GDP and it is the calibre of the emirate’s accommodation offerings that has helped shape the high standards and reputation that Dubai enjoys and is known for. With several visionary features, unique ‘design and build’ concepts which combine the 3Ms (Materials, Methods and Management) to provide turnkey solutions, extensive educational content and other knowledge sharing platforms together with senior level networking, Dubai truly enables progress, drives success and prosperity within the tourism industry as a whole.
