HD Expo 2016
One of the world’s leading and most recognised hospitality-focused trade shows and conferences, HD Expo, has announced today that registration is officially open for its 2016 show which takes place on 4 – 6 May at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. Global industry professionals and media are now able to sign up to attend the highly anticipated show, which this year will focus on ‘A Higher Degree of Hospitality.’
￼￼￼The show floor showcases nearly 800 different exhibitors in one place – many who use it as a launch pad for new, exciting products, connections with industry colleagues and leaders, and conference sessions with industry leaders and rising stars that inform and inspire. “The Social Hub is the heart of our expo hall, and you are invited to experience HD Conversations, our casual, interactive on-the-floor discussions and NEWH’s Green Voice seminars while you are there,” says Liz Sommerville, group show director for HD Expo. “And we are thrilled to announce that it will be designed by Andrew Alford of AJ Capital, who will use the lobby of his company’s newly launched Graduate Hotels brand as the inspiration for this community space.”
This year, HD Expo will hold its first-ever Spec Sessions on Friday. Junior designers and those just starting out in the industry, invited from some of the industry’s best firms, will enjoy a half-day track of education, including a guest speaker, sessions on specifying products given by manufacturers in their booth, and a networking lunch. Attendees will walk away with real-world product knowledge, and will be better able to specify and source successful projects for their firm.
HD Expo established record-breaking attendance and exhibitor figures in 2015 following a successful event with a total of 10,260 registered attendees, marking a 10 per cent increase from the previous year. The show floor showcased the latest and most innovative designs and products from leading global manufacturers in 255,200 square feet of booth space, which was also an increase from 2014. All indications point to continued growth in 2016, with the show floor already 90 per cent sold out.
￼￼Produced by Emerald Expositions and presented by Hospitality Design (HD) magazine, HD Expo provides the ultimate platform over a series of three action-packed days to unite hospitality professionals from around the world in one location to explore the latest and most innovative ￼products, compelling designs, and new services—many of which are unveiled for the first time at the Vegas show.
