14:05 PANEL DISCUSSION: What and how hotels and restaurants are going to benefit from Expo 2020

  • Discussing the post-event demand to avoid the risk of overcapacity; Dubai Expo 2020 is projected to attract 25 million visitors over a period of six months, with more than 70 percent of these coming from outside the UAE but what will happen after that?
  • Highlighting how hotels are planning to retain the staff as it will bring more career opportunities and more jobs
  • Evaluating mid-range hotels as a more lucrative investment as part of a mixed use development, rather than as stand-alone assets to avoid overcapacity
