In January 2015 Safehotels joined INTERSEC, the leading trade fair for Safety & Security organised by Messe Frankfurt. The conference had 1,237 exhibitors covering topics as commercial security, information security, fire & rescue, safety & health and homeland security. It attracted 25,000 visitors from 126 countries; and was held under the patronage of, and officially opened by, H.H. Sheikh Mansoor bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
Safehotels was part of the stand for Mohammed Bin Rashid Establishment for SMEs, generating high interest, in particularly from government parties. Apart from Safehotels the SME stand included other UAE managed companies building a Safe Environment via training, CCTV equipment, evacuation equipment and other.
We experienced high interest in the Safehotels certification among Security Directors from larger companies. They are keen to use Safehotels listings to help identify preferred hotels for their company travel guidelines.
MediaOne is the first hotel to be Safehotels certified in the Middle East and their team joined the conference, highlighting to their corporate partners their high commitment to guest Safety & Security.
Another group showing high interest in Safehotels were the Civil Defence teams. Other Emirates beyond Dubai are keen to follow the trend set by Dubai of hotels with good Safety & Security to become audited and Safehotels certified, so it can be used in the communication to reach a Global Safety conscious audience.
