A survey by event management company Streamline Marketing released in late February estimates that the Middle East hotel industry will see expansion worth $15,000 million in 220 new projects over the coming years. The study counted 67 new hotels planned in the UAE, followed by Egypt with 39, Saudi Arabia with 22, Jordan with 16, Lebanon with 15 and Oman with 11. Looking at confirmed and unconfirmed projects, Streamline speculated that 120 new hotels could be built in Dubai alone, and said that the project with the greatest impact on the Middle East tourist industry in the near future would be Dubai’s Palm development.
