Expo 2020 Dubai will be a transformative event for the Middle East – bringing together 200 nations and hosting 25 million visitors from around the world.
In order to host all of these attendees, Dubai’s hotel and apartment operators are on a major building boom, expecting USD 10 billion in revenue by 2020.
At the recent Arabian Travel Market in Dubai, one of the world’s leading tourism and travel shows, hoteliers were buzzing about the game-changer for transforming the visitor experience is not the buildings, but digital transformation in the industry.
Even before visitors step off the plane, they can start planning their trip online and using mobile tourism apps. From the airport, visitors could use a pre-scheduled autonomous vehicle pick-up to the hotel, where they can remotely check-in.
Hoteliers can gain a competitive advantage by personalizing the guest experience as much as possible – with pre-set in-room controls, location-based offers, and easy card-free room access with smartphones and mobile apps.
But all of these guest advancements require hotels to undergo digital transformation, and to prioritize having highly-available, secure, and scalable data storage and information management solutions.
At Condo Protego, we’re working with leading hospitality groups to guide their digital transformation. Using VERITAS information management solutions, which process data being stored and running on Dell EMC all-flash storage, network-attached storage, or converged infrastructure, hoteliers can drive digital business success.
As Dubai ramps up its tourism figures, hoteliers face increasing urgency to adopt the latest smart information management solutions to revolutionize the visitor experience, to Expo 2020 Dubai and beyond.
