Hozpitality Group Extends Gratitude to Middle East Hospitality Stakeholders for a Remarkable 2023

In the wake of a transformative year, Hozpitality Group extends heartfelt appreciation to the dynamic and supportive network of hospitality organizations, suppliers, and the community across the Middle East. Our partners' collaborative efforts and relentless support have been instrumental in completing Hozpitality Group's diverse initiatives throughout 2023.


The commencement of 2023 marked a significant milestone with the launch of Hozpitality's Best 30 Power List in the Middle East. In this inaugural initiative, Middle Eastern hospitality companies were invited to nominate their leaders, and the community played an integral role in voting for them. The resulting Hozpitality's Best 30 List comprised eight powerlists, recognizing accomplished leaders across various departments in the Middle East. The publication, with over 5000 copies distributed in the UAE and Oman, was made possible with the Danube Group's generous support, contributing to the realization of this visionary endeavor. Special gratitude is extended to JM Foods and RESTOFAIR RAK for their invaluable assistance in distribution.

Diversifying its commitment to excellence, Hozpitality Group introduced a new award segment dedicated to the Food and Beverage (F&B) and restaurant industry. The Middle East F&B Excellence Awards, hosted at The Address Dubai Marina, witnessed resounding success. The event brought together the F&B industry's key players, sponsors, partners, and supporters, fostering a platform for recognizing outstanding leaders in the sector.

Building on this momentum, the 5th Middle East Chef Excellence Awards were held at The Address Sky View and supported by the Emirates Culinary Guild and ICCA Dubai. This culinary celebration honored leaders who have demonstrated excellence in their field. The accompanying printed magazine reached over 3000 companies in the UAE and Oman, amplifying the recognition of culinary prowess. Additionally, a live cooking competition targeting young chefs was organized as part of the awards.

The grandeur continued with the 9th Middle East Hospitality Excellence Awards, hosted at the Arabian Ranches Golf Club, and over 500 esteemed guests attended. The event highlighted leaders across diverse departments, showcasing their exceptional contributions to the hospitality industry.

In a commitment to industry engagement, Hozpitality Group actively participated in prominent trade fairs and exhibitions, maintaining a presence at GulFood, GulFood Manufacturing, The Hotel Show in Dubai and Saudi Arabia, and Expo-Culinaire.

Looking ahead, 2024 promises even greater achievements with plans for a live ceremony for the Indian Hospitality Excellence Awards in February in Mumbai. Furthermore, the Hozpitality Sports Championship, in collaboration with Danube, is set to captivate audiences in Dubai in the middle of 2024.

Hozpitality Group expresses sincere gratitude to well-wishers, clients, and supporters who have walked alongside us on the journey of 2023. As we usher in 2024, we extend warm wishes to all for a year filled with prosperity and continued success.
