Information about Suppliers

A strong supportive international supplier network is key to successfully completing hotel projects. Through work on many international five star projects, over a period of twenty five years, I have built up a large network of such suppliers, manufacturers and specialists. They supply quality products and services, conform to international standards, provide value for money and are financially secure. They ensure good working conditions for their employees as well as manufacturing and products that are green, sustainable and  eco-friendly.

The Showcase is not a directory of suppliers but a selection of suppliers many of which  have successfully completed projects with me.  Those that have not worked with me are prequalified and provide good references.

Through the Showcase, quality  hotel products are presented ,  to luxury hotel project Clients, including international hotel operators, designers, hotel owners and buyers..
The emphasis is on quality, design, environment, reliability, performance, service and safety.
Together, the Showcase  suppliers are able to supply most of the OS&E needs for a new hotel project.
Supplier references include some of the most successful international hotel operators.

Manufacturers and Suppliers of new innovative products for luxury hotels should send their presentation to, robert@robertdunn.eu .

The showcase is for general information purposes only and does not constitute professional advice.
