Easyfairs Northeral Acquires Hotel & Restaurant Event
BRUSSELS, Feb. 26, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet / --

Further expansion in Algeria as tourism sector booms 

Easyfairs Northeral, the North African branch of Easyfairs, has announced the 
acquisition of SIEL - The International Exhibition for Hotel & Restaurant 
Equipment and Services.  This 14-year-old event attracts +7000 visitors every 
year from the HoReCa sector and will now benefit from all the group's expertise 
in that field as Easyfairs already organises seven events on the same topic in 
Scandinavia, the Netherlands and Belgium.   

The next edition, which is rebranded SIEL HORECA Expo, will take place on 8-10 
December 2020 at the Centre International de conferences d'Alger.    

2,393 tourism projects approved

Easyfairs Northeral's Managing Director, Olivier-Hicham Allard, explains : "We 
are closely following the initiatives of the Algerian government to develop a 
world-class tourism and hotel industry. The Algerian Ministry of Tourism 
announced in December 2019 the creation of at least 310,274 new beds through 
more than 2,393 new tourist projects. This demonstrates an impressive dynamic 
that is just starting since the country's 1200 km of coastline on the 
Mediterranean Sea barely have any tourist infrastructure. 

"In addition, the country's opening up to foreign investment announces the 
massive arrival of international franchises and brands including cafes, 
tearooms and restaurant chains. By way of comparison, our Horeca Expo in 
Belgium brings together more than 650 exhibitors on 50,000 m² and this for a 
country of 11 million inhabitants. So you can imagine the potential for a 
country of 44 million inhabitants and which has decided to become a global 
tourist destination, two hours from most European capitals."
