Dubai will have more than 100,000 hotel rooms by 2020, a new report claims.

The report, which was published by TOP HOTEL PROJECTS for The Hotel Show Dubai 2015 reveals that Dubai has 96 new hotel development projects and 36,523 rooms in the pipeline.

And with the current number of hotel rooms at 65,000, according to Jones Lang LaSalle, that means Dubai is set to burst through the 100,000 room mark by the time Expo 2020 comes to the emirate.

Dubai wants to attract 20 million tourists by 2020. Christine Davidson, Event Director of The Hotel Show Dubai, which is organised by dmg events and takes place from September 28 to 30 later this year at Dubai World Trade Centre, said: “This is an exciting time for our industry and market.”

The busiest year for Dubai hotels looks to be 2017, with some 30 projects opening to the public. Dubai’s first fully solar-powered hotel – the Hotel Indigo Dubai The Sustainable City – and its first Mandarin Oriental and Bulgari luxury hotels are all set to open in 2017.

The major Dubai Pearl development, a “mix of six innovative 5-Star hotels” is planned to launch in early-2018 – including Dubai’s first MGM Grand and Bellagio hotels, brands made famous by the Las Vegas strip.

The TOP HOTEL PROJECTS report shows that Dubai is leading the Middle East and Africa for new hotel developments.

Davidson said: “Hotel and leisure development, build and investment is significant and set to continue, making Dubai the perfect contract market for global suppliers and investors.”
