In spite of being almost a desert, the growth of Dubai's tourism industry has seen spectacular growth beginning in 1995. While oil revenues still form the bulk of Dubai's revenues, 10% of the economic wealth was contributed by travel and tourism in 2004 and 10.5% in 2005. In the following passages, I will be determining the key players in Dubai's hotel industry with an analysis of the policy that threatens their operations. I will also determine who among them will be able to overcome the challenges that lie in the future.
2.0 Research Methods
The main method of research to be used in this paper is the gathering of data from Dubai's government reports and private hotel industry consulting agencies. I have compared and analyzed the statistical and other relevant information that both parties present and synthesized the data into a cohesive whole. I have also made use of the reports to determine the key players of the hotel industry and used it as my basis for further research. With the key players known, I proceeded into obtaining their profiles and analyzing the scope of their operations and their management styles.
