He offers both an extensive knowledge of the local market as well as expertise in international sales and marketing through trade shows and the promotion of Dubai to the travel trade.

Bavaria Executive Suites Dubai is scheduled to open late summer 2008 with 2,100 designer suites in two 40-storey towers located on Sheikh Zayed Road within the Dubai Technology and Media Free Zone in the heart of the city’s vibrant business district, opening up opportunities for medium to large size groups wishing to visit Dubai and requiring both meetings facilities and accommodation under one roof.

In addition, each bedroom has its own bathroom, enabling delegates to share accommodation without compromising privacy, and all suites offer a compact laundry room with washer/dryer facilities as well as full access to hotel laundry services.

Comments Thomas Gertz, CEO Bavaria Hotels International on the appointment of Mr Marker “For conferences large or small, Bavaria Executive Suites Dubai is more than a hotel; it is a flexible marketing tool, with all the components necessary for successful business under one roof. For the position of DOS-MICE we required someone with a unique understanding of the local market, the promotion of 5-star hotels internationally and with the dedication and drive to undertake the huge challenge offered by this project. We are delighted to have found Savio Marker, and look forward to introducing him to the travel trade and prospective clients over the course of the coming months.’

The extensive facilities at Bavaria Executive Suites Dubai incorporate the following features:-

• Meeting Centre: Situated on the 4th Floor, the Meeting Centre offers 6 meeting rooms for 10 to 1000 persons, terraces, powerful audio-visual equipment and wireless connectivity. The multipurpose Conference Room and 4 breakout rooms have natural daylight and access to the terrace overlooking the ocean; an option that is quite rare in Dubai.

• Business Centre, adjacent to the Meeting Centre on the 4th Floor, with fully equipped and manned offices of varying sizes, and service support provided by a trained and dedicated team, taking care of all administrative and document processing requirements.

• Business Club: delivering luxury and exclusivity to its discerning members, with a dedicated Rooftop Business Club Lounge. Membership benefits include complimentary access to Business Club Lounges, private car park, guaranteed accommodation and complimentary upgrade in all Bavaria Hotels International properties, as well as access to the Lifestyle Fitness Club and all other wellness facilities.

• Personal Assistant Service: an exclusive service of Bavaria Hotels International to support corporate and business clients in meeting their deadlines, in the language of their choice.

According to Mr Gertz “60% of our business will be corporate, with 30% of this from the MICE market, and Mr Marker will be building his team accordingly.

Not only will it be possible for medium to large conferences to take place under one roof, the flexible suite accommodations ensure that families have the option to join delegates at no extra cost, and to enjoy a number of activities ranging from treatments in the Angsana Spa, workout in the Lifestyle Fitness Club or at the Rooftop Sports Arena, or swim in one of the two 25 m pools – with the little ones professionally cared for and entertained throughout it all in the extensive Kids Club adjoining the Angsana Spa.”

All this just minutes from the Jumeirah beaches, and the city’s newest shopping malls – Ibn Battuta and Mall of the Emirates. The hotel will also be connected to the Media City station of the Dubai Metro.

Online reservations will be possible from early summer 2008, with Group Requests considered for arrival dates from October 2008 onwards.
