Aloft Dubai South Strongly Prepares for Expo 2020 as it Enters Second Year of Operation

DUBAI, UAE – 21 October 2019:  Aloft Dubai South, the first boutique hotel in the heart of Aviation City and the only hotel opened within the Dubai South masterplan development, is keen on widening its market reach as the property aggressively prepares for the opening of the much-anticipated Expo 2020 Dubai.

Aloft Dubai South enjoys a prominent location within the Dubai South project, identified as the emirate’s largest and leading global trade, business and aviation hub. Close to Jebel Ali Freezone, Jebel Ali Sea Port, Al Maktoum International Airport, Logistic District, Business Park, Aviation District, Humanitarian District, Commercial District, Golf District, Residential District and Exhibition District, the Dubai South project is built for people to live, work and invest.

“We are located in a destination that will soon become the hub for huge businesses and we are confident that the year 2020 will be another rewarding year for Aloft Dubai South. We will soon implement strategies that will further increase awareness with business clients whilst strengthening our local community engagement. The aim is to offer ease and convenience to thousands of residents and guests visiting the Expo,” says Aditya Rajaram, Managing Director, Radar Holding, the owning company of Aloft Dubai South.

The management will be working with government agencies to offer customised services by providing free shuttle buses to the exhibition site for both in-house and outside guests. Plans are also underway for the hotel to become a ticketing venue for fast and quick entry to the facilities.

“We will create packages that will offer unique experiences while promoting the theme of Expo 2020 which is sustainability, opportunity and mobility. Given our ties to the exemplary Marriott brand, we will continue to connect our guests with unrivalled, authentic hospitality experience present in all Aloft hotels worldwide,” adds Rajaram.

Situated near the Expo 2020 site and right across from the soon-to-open Emaar South community, the 145-room Aloft Dubai South has successfully positioned itself as the new go-to hub in the area for accommodation and food and beverage during its first year of operation.

“Since opening a year ago, Aloft Dubai South has enjoyed a reputation of being the place to go for business meetings and casual gatherings within the immediate neighbourhood and business districts. We have welcomed VIPs and dignitaries and have achieved fantastic guest reviews. Our outstanding operations team lead by Ahmed Ibrahim have truly been the driving force behind ensuring the first year of operation has been smooth,” comments Elaine Watson, Cluster General Manager, Aloft Dubai South.

“As we enter our second year of business, we look forward to continuing to grow our presence in the market and welcoming additional business and leisure travelers visiting the neighbourhood. With our location, we will see our hotel bustling with activity as the city prepares for the opening of the once-in-a-lifetime Expo 2020. We are excited to grow our presence and maintain our position as the preferred accommodation choice for visitors to Dubai South district,” adds Watson.

In addition to corporate clients, Aloft Dubai South will target the incoming residents of Emaar South, which features more than 15,000 residences as well as individuals working at the Al Maktoum International Airport, the Mohammed Bin Rashid Aerospace Hub and the nearby Logistics district which is home to E-Z Dubai, a 920,000 sqm integrated e-commerce hub.

Designed for the “always-on” global travelers, Aloft Dubai South delivers an uber-trendy hotel experience with its tech-savvy approach, fresh design and buzz-worthy happenings.
