With 300 hotels in the pipeline to open before 2020, adding to approximately 700 hotels currently operating in Dubai, the environmental impact of the sector from natural resource usage is set to rise. With plans to host 20 million tourists a year by 2020, there is rising importance of having strong environmental measures and sustainability strategies for Dubai’s hotel sector.
To promote the adoption of environmental sustainable practices in the tourism sector, Dubai Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) is developing ideas and frameworks to ensure that hotels leverage on alternative energy sources such as solar power, greener transport such as electric vehicles, better waste management and recycling systems and make greater use of locally sourced food supplies. Earlier in April this year, DTCM launched Dubai Green Tourism Programme (DGTP)to encourage hotels to adopt sustainability practices.
Dubai Green Hotel Innovation is envisioned to support the Emirate’s green economy initiatives, by providing a platform for hoteliers to discuss strategies to reduce the hospitality industry’s carbon footprint and achieve greater environmental sustainability. The event will also showcase innovative energy efficient solutions during refurbishing and retrofitting, as well as discuss energy and environmental designs, which can help hoteliers to achieve reduced operating costs and improve sustainable performance.
Dubai Green Hotel Innovation will discuss the latest green initiatives across the Emirate, and the implications on the hospitality industry, as well as best practices and the latest technology for reducing operating costs and improving sustainable performance through the adoption of eco-friendly and energy efficient solutions.

The ACM Interface+ Format
The ACM Interface+ conference format is designed to optimise the valuable and finite time our busy delegations can dedicate to being out of the office while also enhancing their enjoyment of the ACM on-site experience. Specifically tailored to our region of operations here in the Middle East, the Interface+ format maximises networking opportunities, facilitating the building of profitable relationships within the context of a dynamic, efficient and relevant learning environment.
ACM conference days, using the Interface+ format, have an earlier start than conventional agendas and conclude with a late lunch. The conference sessions are regularly punctuated by refreshment and networking breaks to allow for unhurried face-to-face interaction between peers, colleagues and business prospects. The mid-afternoon conclusion of our formal conference agenda allows for government representatives and busy executives to adjourn earlier in the day, having still enjoyed a full and rich programme of content. Post-lunch, ACM will offer additional, optional learning and networking opportunities in the shape of workshops, product demonstrations, technology launches, site visits, pre-arranged 1-2-1 business meetings and hosted receptions.
Interface+ makes timing sense for our delegates and business sense for our sponsors.
