With more than 105,000 professionals, 1600 exhibitors and 133 countries represented, EquipHotel Paris has become an important playground for developing the latest innovations in the hotel and restaurant sector.

Once a generalist trade show, it is now multi-specialist, providing visitors with an inspirational and interactive experience. Because there is no one, single fashion trend in the hotel and restaurant sector, the show will exclusively showcase multiple trends based around five main sectors: Restoration, Design, Wellbeing, Technology and Services. 

From furniture and interiors, kitchen equipment and food products, to spas, bathrooms and technology innovations, visitors will have access to a 360° product range. With over 1,600 French and international exhibitors on show, EquipHotel provides solutions to develop business, build customer loyalty and meet the needs of markets both in France and abroad. 

This upcoming edition will take the form of multi-faceted inspiration laboratory, to provide a greater experiential visit, with a focus on a stronger than ever Design Hub.  Actively supported by the best architects and experts, EquipHotel offers a vibrant stage to new products, innovations and industry trends.

Bringing together hotel and restaurant professionals, EquipHotel aims to offer a 100% immersive design experience through the profusion of styled “labs” created by architects, interior designers, atmospherists and other stylists.

The show also gives leading chefs free rein to show off their talents at the cordon bleu restaurant and during cookery contests. This and more, to be experienced in a real-life pop-up hotel: STUDIO18. Set up on a new, supersized scale, spanning 3 floors and over 3000m², this space stages the hotel of the future. Inspirational and inclusive, visitors will be guided from room to room, each designed by a renowned architect.

In pavillon 7,1 Jean-Philippe Nuel presents his vision of the hotel room and its modularity. In pavillon 7.2, Marc Hertrich and Nicolas Adnet pursue their work in the bar and restaurant areas, featuring three different spaces: Resto des Chefs, le Bar and le Club VIP/Presse. 

In pavillon 7.3, Julie Gauthron, Christophe Gautrand and Benjamin Deshoulières play with their vision of the outdoor, with the « Digital rooftop »  – a user-friendly and exterior facing space, situated on the top floor of the trade fair. With the spirit of a start-up, it mixes a contemporary “outdoor co-working” vibe with a programme of special events. 

Other brand-new exclusive highlights include Casa de Luz, a motionless journey imagined by Sandrine Alouf & Thierry Virvaire; the Signature Space, with its dreamlike set design signed by Alnoor & Eric Lentulo of Etendart Studio; the Wellness Centre and its spellbinding design by Didier Knoll & Elodie Goddard; the Cozy Lazy and it’s rule-breaking room designed by Fabrice Knoll and also the Interior Design Centre – a real, interactive marketplace.
