With a total of six countries as part of the CHS Middle East & North Africa Chapter, we are located in one of the most dynamic region, where tourism is experiencing an aggressive growth, bringing many savvy professionals from overseas to help shape the future of tourism in the Middle-East.

Our vision for the chapter is to bring together all hoteliers from the region to share together their experiences, views, and create a close community where each member would find his/her place to contribute to the success of the chapter and benefit from it.
