(MENAFN) Global hospitality brands invest in more luxury hotels across the Gulf country while the existing ones expand their capacities amid competition for hosting guests and events heating up in the United Arab Emirate (UAE) which will host the World Expo in 2020, Xinhua reported. The emirate of Dubai already has the highest number of congresses, conferences and incentive events in the Middle East and hotels like Etihad Towers.
