|Adding yet another accolade to its growing trophy cabinet, Rotana, one of the leading hotel management companies in the region with hotels across the Middle East, Africa and Turkey, was named the ‘Best Hotel Brand in the Middle East’ at the prestigious Business Traveller Middle East Awards 2018.
Omer Kaddouri, President & CEO and Guy Hutchinson, COO from Rotana accepted the award on behalf of the company at a glittering awards ceremony held in Dubai, UAE, on the opening day of the Arabian Travel Market (ATM) 2018, which is taking place until 25 April 2018 at Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
