Registration is now open for the 2019 Hospitality Design Exposition and Conference (HD Expo).
Taking place May 15 – 17th, 2019, at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, this year’s event promises to be "the most immersive yet", drawing in thousands of designers, architects, owners, operators, purchasing agents, brand executives, and other hospitality professionals for three days of interactive content and design inspiration.
“Each year, we try to continually evolve and make the show bigger and more experiential, and this year we’ve gone a step beyond the norm,” says Stacy Shoemaker Rauen, Editor in Chief of Hospitality Design magazine, and Vice President of the Hospitality Design Group.
“From the new wellness pavilion on the show floor, featuring all day programming dedicated to this growing market, to our inspirational and informational conference sessions with some of the industry’s best and rising stars discussing topics pulled from the pages of Hospitality Design magazine, we are excited for what we have in store for our attendees.”
This year’s conference highlights keynote with Andrew Zobler founder and CEO of the Sydell Group and 30 unique sessions with industry visionaries, including chef Stephanie Izard; Neil Jacobs, CEO of Six Senses; Aaron Richter, senior vice president of design of Equinox; Timothy Griffin, managing director, the Hoxton; and Adam Farmerie, partner of AvroKO.
Several free sessions will also be held in the Social Hub, designed by Rottet Studio, and in the inaugural wellness pavilion, devoted to the effect of the rapidly growing $4.3 trillion wellness industry on hospitality.
In addition, HD Expo is bringing back its signature Owners’ Roundtable, which provides attendees the unique opportunity to meet face-to-face with industry leaders from prominent brands, such as MGM Resorts, Geolo Capital, 21c Museum Hotels, Hyatt, Wyndham Worldwide, Provenance Hotels, Hersha Hospitality, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, and Dream Hotel Group.
Nearly 900 exhibitors are expected to be present at HD Expo 2019, with 500 exhibitors unique to the show and approximately 200 showing for the first time. Categories will include lighting, fabric, wall coverings, flooring, bath fixtures, accessories, and more.
