New meetings industry appointment for Bavaria Executive Suites Dubai

Thomas Gertz, chief executive of Bavaria Hotels International, recently announced the appointment of Savio Marker as director of sales, MICE at Bavaria Executive Suites Dubai.

Marker brings over eight years’ experience in five-star hotels in Dubai to his new role, most recently focusing on the MICE market. 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.


Gertz: Delighted to have found Savio Marker


Bavaria Executive Suites Dubai is scheduled to open late this summer, 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. This will unlock opportunities for medium to large-sized groups wishing to visit Dubai and requiring both meetings facilities and accommodation under one roof.

Designed as a full-service luxury suite hotel, Bavaria Executive Suites Dubai offers 2,100 luxurious one, two and three-bedroom accomodation, with well equipped work stations, high-speed internet access, additional storage areas in all rooms and terraces from which to enjoy spectacular sunsets.

Commenting on Marker’s appointment, Gertz said: “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 five-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, and look forward to introducing him to the travel trade and prospective clients over the course of the coming months.”

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