The 2nd edition of the Hospitality Innovation Summit: Powering the Region’s Hospitality Sector through Innovation and Collaboration. With a focus on Innovation, Integration, and Implementation, the event will bring together industry decision-makers, innovative suppliers, and eminent speakers. It will include insightful presentations, a special interview series, and pre-scheduled B2B meetings. The summit will also host a debate among representatives of both homegrown and international brands, promising an amalgamation of knowledge-expanding insights and networking opportunities unlike any other.

Operating under the theme “Innovation, Integration, and Implementation”, the summit brings together a wealth of industry leaders. Over 200 decision-making delegates, 70 innovative suppliers, and 30 notable speakers are expected to attend, providing the platform for a broad mix of owners, developers, architects, designers, and suppliers.

As the Knowledge Partner, Knight Frank launches the summit calling on their insight into the Saudi and UAE hotel markets with Turab Saleem inaugurating the proceedings. Following this, attendees will hear from luminaries such as Justin Wells and Richard Nelson, rounding off with Maya Ziadeh moderating an engaging interview series.

One of the highlights of HIS is the provision for streamlined B2B meetings. Establishing direct lines of communication between pre-qualified buyers and suppliers, it’s expected to bring serious business networks into play. This includes keynote presentations from international architects and designers from LAVA, CHAP, Woodsbagot, WATG, and more.

The summit will host a debate featuring domestic and global brands’ representatives, including Hakan Ozkasikci of Kerzner International, Gilbert Khalil of Sunset Hospitality Group, and Maliha Nishat from Marriott International.

Finally, the summit will play host to an impressive rostrum of industry leads such as ISHRAQ Hospitality CEO, and the Design Director of Taiba Investments, creating an exclusive, high-quality environment. The second HIS promises to be a mark of excellence in propelling the hospitality sector to new heights.
