The 2018 edition of the Middle East Hospitality Awards took place on Sunday, September 16th at The Ritz-Carlton, DIFC, Dubai, providing a richly-deserved opportunity to recognise and celebrate the most outstanding properties, projects and people in the Middle East’s vibrant hospitality industry over the last year.
The ceremony encompassed 18 categories which celebrated the best hospitality properties, projects and professionals over the last year, including 2 new categories, 4-star Hotel of the Year and Renovation Project of the Year.
Dubai’s Renaissance Downtown Hotel was crowned the best 5-star Hotel of the Year, while President and CEO of the Jumeirah Group, and immediate-past chair of the World Travel and Trade Council, Gerald Lawless was conferred with a Lifetime Achievement award for his unparalleled contribution to Dubai’s hospitality and tourism sector.
The quality and volume of entries that are received for the Awards are an impressive testimonial of the expanding list of hospitality offerings that are at par with international standards and are a spectacular celebration of all fine places and professionals that helps retain the Middle East’s global reputation for world-class hospitality.
The awards will return in 2019 at the twentieth edition of the Hotel Show Dubai and we expect it to be another competitive and prestigious event. If you would like to be a part of it, please contact Nikita Menezes on the below details.
“The Hotel Show is a true coming together of the industry and a really important one at that, and one that is eagerly looked forward to by everyone in the business."
