Spanish hotel solutions specialists, Onity, will launch a new range of management-friendly electronic safes at The Hotel Show taking place at Airport Expo Dubai from May 19 to 21.

The company will also use the exhibition to showcase a discreet, state-of-the-art television surveillance system, specially designed to meet the needs of the hospitality industry, as well as its range of electronic locks.

Onity is the largest provider of electronic locks to the hospitality industry, with 2.5 million installed worldwide.

Organised by Streamline Marketing, The Hotel Show creates a "one-stop-shop" hotel supplies opportunity for hotel owners, operators and developers.

Among the big international line-up of exhibitors displaying a huge range of products and services vital to a hotel's day-to-day running is UK-based Neos Interactive Limited, an emerging leader in the provision of digital news, entertainment and communications systems to the hospitality industry.

The company, which last month opened its first overseas operation at Dubai Media City, will be launching an enhanced, simpler and completely customisable entertainment and communications system, Neos TV, which gives hotel guests quick and easy access to news and entertainment.

One of the UAE's leading manufacturers of banquet and outdoor furniture, Intermetal Ltd, whose client list includes Radisson SAS, InterContinental Hotels Group and Le Meridien, will launch a new range of banqueting chairs with ergonomic seats and lumbar support to guarantee longer hours of comfortable sitting.

Another UAE company, Key Information Technology, the distributor for Micros-Fidelio, will introduce the latest property management, point of sale, and material control software products.

Joanne Evans, director of Streamline Marketing, said: "For hotel developers, owners and operators, the exhibition brings together an enormous range of vital products and services under one roof. The Middle East hotel industry has been hit hard in recent months but is now turning the corner, and with a large number of new hotels under development across the region, and many existing properties needing refurbishment, there is a great deal of business to be won by suppliers."

Other exhibitors include Frette, an Italian makers of exquisite linens, towels and accessories for famous hotels such as the George V in Paris, and UK-based Metro, manufacturer of shelving systems and trollies, which will be launching a new range of maid carts.

The Hotel Show is owned by dmg World Media. For a second year it is being staged in conjunction with another dmg World Media event, The Office Exhibition, the two events being run simultaneously in adjacent exhibition halls.

Fully supported by the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) and the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI), The Hotel Show also has the support of the UK's Department of Trade and Industry.
