May 8 - The number of hotel rooms in Sharjah is expected to grow 75 percent said Sheikh Sultan Bin Ahmed Al Qassimi, speaking at the Arabian Travel Market in the UAE.  Al Qassimi, who is chairman of the Sharjah Commerce and Tourism Development Authority (SCTDA) said the increase in room numbers is expected based on the expected rise in hotel facilities over the next four years, and also because of on-going growth of the tourism sector in the emirate.
