Speech H.E. Sheikh Sultan bin Ahmed Al Qassimi

May 8, 2014 Exhibitions No Comments Email Email

In the Islamic Culture Capital 2014, Capital of Arab Tourism 2015 and Capital of Arab Culture 1998, the pace accelerates and efforts are mobilised towards development to keep up with the presence and success that HH Sheikh Dr. Sultan’s Sharjah has achieved in all fields and sectors.

In the emirate that adopts integration and development in all its sectors and projects to achieve the vision of building a future that serves its people and visitors alike, it pleases me to share with you one of those projects. Today, we announce the establishment of the first official hotel of Expo Centre Sharjah, Novotel Sharjah Expo, which is designed to offer the necessary facilities to participants in the Centre’s events and exhibitions, as well as to tourists.

The 4-star hotel will comprise 200 rooms that fall under three categories: standard rooms, club floor rooms and executive suites, not to mention the meeting rooms and business centre. The club floor will feature enhanced amenities and a lounge area.

Ladies and gentlemen,

Development is a continuous and cumulative process. It starts with a vision followed by directives and finally implementation. We, in Sharjah, constantly strive, under the guidance of His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, UAE Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, to improve our emirate in a way that makes it keep pace with the times and represent a beacon of modernity and authenticity at the same time. It is this striving that generated the idea to build Novotel Sharjah Expo.






The hotel, which will be located near Expo Centre Sharjah, is the fruit of a strategic partnership between United Investment, Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Accor Hotel Services Middle East. It is set to meet a pressing need in the region and be part of Sharjah’s present and future plans.

Boasting a smart and contemporary design, it seeks to offer high-quality services to both businesspeople and tourists. It is true that it mainly aims to attend to the needs of visitors to the Expo Centre and business travellers, but it also targets leisure travellers and connects them to the most vital family leisure areas in the emirate.

Novotel Sharjah Expo is poised to complement Sharjah’s set of hotels, catering for the emirate’s progress in the fields of investment, tourism and economy and highlighting its bright cultural side.
