About us

The annual Middle East Hospitality Awards are staged during The Hotel Show Dubai and feature as a celebration of achievements, innovations and excellence of the Middle East’s ever-expanding hospitality industry over the past 12 months.

The 2017 prestigious industry ceremony, which was held at the Palazzo Versace Dubai, had the prize-givings biggest ever number of entries and judges had the unenviable task of assessing hundreds of different submissions across 18 separate categories. Hotels, resorts and restaurants that have demonstrated leading performance, innovation and excellence over the last year were showcased during the ceremony, which attracts over 500 industry professionals. Winners in each of the 18 categories, which range from Luxury Hotel of the Year to Best Use of Technology, to the MEHA Lifetime Achievement Award are crowned by a distinguished judging panel of industry leaders and rightfully stand as benchmarks for further innovation and excellence over the coming year.
