The hospitality industry combines a dynamic blend of cultural, leisure, and business interactions. It plays a pivotal role in shaping the global economy, particularly tourism. This sector is witnessing significant transformation, notably in the EMEA region.
The global hospitality market is forecasted to grow to 5.8 trillion U.S. dollars in 2027 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.5 per cent, according to Statista. In the Middle East, the sector is forecasted to show robust growth, influenced by increased tourism and government initiatives promoting cities as regional economic and tourist hubs. The next decade will be transformative for the hospitality industry, focusing on sustainability, digital integration, and personalised experiences.
