Foreword

My motivation for this report is driven by my passion for the Hospitality industry and its many facets. In producing this research report I had to rely on a lot of co-operation from many professionals within the industry and numerous tourism reports by the UAE government sectors.

Without the assistance of the numerous hospitality professionals that I have received the completion of this report for my Master’s Degree would not have been possible. I would also like to thank my wife who has to suffer my constant studying and complaining when I am struggling to compile information.
