There is just one day to go until members of the industry and hoteliers from around the country gather at London’s Olympia for the Independent Hotel Show 2014.
Running from 21st – 22nd October, the two-day exhibition will see a range of more than 250 companies showcasing their best products and innovative designs to a crowd of eager hotel owners.
The show is the only event dedicated to the independent and boutique hospitality sectors and offers a range of business development opportunities to visitors.
Now in its third year, the exhibition will also host a jam-packed schedule of business seminars, covering topics such as design, technology and marketing, as well as an in-depth discussion about the importance of brand, led by James Lohan from Mr & Mrs Smith.
The Hub, designed by Nina&CO in collaboration with Anya Fennet, will provide a central networking point, while the Hansgrohe VIP Lounge will welcome visitors who want to meet and relax over a drink or two.
The Buell Business Support Clinic will offer a one-stop-shop for advice on all aspects of business specific to the independent, luxury, boutique hotel industry.
Tomorrow evening, the first night of IHS14 will play host to its own industry awards, recognising The Independent Hotelier of the Year 2014 and The Outstanding New Hotel of the Year 2014.
Boutique Hotelier is also hosting its own special Personal Service Star Awards, which will see the winners of nine categories announced at a glittering ceremony at Hilton’s Olympia.
