Solid foundations

Established by father-daughter duo Nouhad and Joumana Dammous, Hospitality Services is an event management and publishing company based in the bustling capital city of Beirut, Lebanon. The company’s foundations were laid back in 1993, when Nouhad pioneered Lebanon’s first hospitality school. A leader in the field of hospitality, Nouhad brought those years of experience to establish his own business, with a vision to support and shape the future of the sector.

The firm organizes major industry trade fairs and consumer events that stand at the heart of the region’s food, hospitality and tourism sectors. It has successfully franchised-out its HORECA brand to Jordan, KSA and Kuwait. In addition, the company has sound expertise in creating white label events for clients both locally and internationally.

Over more than two decades, Hospitality Services has evolved to become an industry reference, with a talented team of over 30 staff members. The organization’s mission is to continue developing its activities and initiatives to further promote gastronomy, foster the region’s hospitality and foodservice industries and recognize creative talent.

The company continuously seeks to improve the quality of its services through clear objectives, investment in its people and compliance to legal requiremements. Its ISO accreditation is further affirmation of the firm’s commitment to superior quality standards.
