The ‘exceptional experiences’ portion was repeated at the Dubai roundtable. Following this, there was a special presentation by KSN Prasad, managing director of Infosight Consultants, who discussed upcoming hotel projects and opportunities for A/V companies seeking to do business with the hospitality industry. He also discussed the types of technologies hoteliers in Dubai are seeking.
