Fahmy al Hinai, director, Poly Products, said, “One of the prime objectives of the event is to interface the hospitality industry with bedding supplies and decor products and other hotel equipment. Raha is delighted to associate with the Food & Hospitality Oman exhibition. Supported by a booming tourism market, the hospitality business in Oman has been on a growth trajectory for the last several years. Raha has been supporting all such endeavours as the expo would expose the visitors to the latest products and various cutting-edge technologies available in the hospitality market.”
Food & Hospitality Oman, recognised as the biggest event of its kind in the sultanate, and organised by the biggest trade exhibitions and conferences organiser Omanexpo, showcases the industry’s continuous development and expansion in the food, hotel and hospitality sectors through a comprehensive networking and entertainment platform. Besides the trade segment, connoisseurs of food and epicureans in Oman can look forward to culinary delights prepared by Oman’s top chefs at the Professional Chefs Competition.
The Food & Hospitality Oman exhibition continues to be spurred by the positive indicators shown by Oman’s tourism and hospitality industry. The total investment in the sector is set to hit US$1.17bn by 2026, according to the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC). Adding positive vibes is the Cluttons’ Outlook for Spring 2017 report which states that tourism in Oman remains on a strong growth curve.
The hospitality sector appears to be going from strength to strength and is likely to remain the star performing asset class in Oman’s real estate landscape for the next few years. To cope with the projected increased demand, hotel supply in Oman increased by 2,022 keys in 2016.
Raha lending patronage to Food & Hospitality Oman exhibition 2017 is a testimony of its strong support and commitment to contribute to the growing industry in Oman.
