The opening of the Hotel Westin Dubai Al Habtoor City last August with 1,004 rooms including 142 suites, pushes Dubai's hotel supply over the symbolic 100,000 room mark, making the Emirate one of the  most mature hotel markets on the planet. On this occasion, Dubai Tourism and its CEO Helal Saeed Almarri organized an official event bringing together the regions primary players. Dubai Tourism expects to see steady growth in nights until the culmination point that should be the World Exposition 2020, the first organized in the Middle East, based on the theme 'Connecting Minds, Creating the Future'.

The Emirate hopes for 35.9 million nights in 2018, which would represent annual growth by +10.8% over 2015. According to Dubai Tourism, the hotel supply could reach 134,000 rooms by the end of 2018. The city's tourism authorities are counting on the development of the local airlines Emirates and flydubai, as well as on an increase in the length of stay of visitors to reach 4 days on an average. Preparations  for Expo 2020 also go hand in hand with a diversification of the city's tourism supply with the creation of cultural institutions, theme parks, and other entertainment infrastructures.
