The Independent Hotel Show returns to Olympia West, London on October 18 and 19 and now registration for the top event is officially open.
The exhibition, which is the only UK event dedicated to the independent, luxury and boutique hotel sector, will be back in just a few months’ time for its fourth year with new features, top industry experts and key note sessions targeted to help hoteliers grow their business.
Highlights of the show will again include the Innovation Stage and the Business Theatre, which will feature a line up of industry experts and hotel entrepreneurs delivering free-to-attend seminars and panel discussions over the two days.
New to 2016 will be The Hospitality Interiors Hub designed by Paper + White, a dedicated networking area featuring a thought-provoking design concept by Paper + White.
Adding another design element to the show will be a feature area curated by Designersblock, international design exhibition specialists.
The exhibit, appearing for the second time at the Independent Hotel Show, will showcase the latest in style and design innovation for hotel owners and operators.
Following the success of 2015’s spa and wellness feature area, Destination Spa is returning bigger and better for 2016.
The show will also feature the Independent Hotelier and Outstanding New Hotel Awards which will recognise those who have made a significant contribution to the industry over the past year.
The Awards will take place directly before the Boutique Hotelier Personal Service Star Awards, which will be held just across the road at Hilton Olympia from 7pm.
Commenting on the exciting line-up for 2016, Miranda Martin, show director at Independent Hotel Show says: “The 2016 Independent Hotel Show promises to be our most exciting and comprehensive yet. Now established and in its fifth year, the show has gone from strength to strength, continuing to attract the highest calibre of industry experts and keynote speakers, aspirational and valued exhibitors and above all, independent hoteliers committed to adding value for their guests and that wow factor to their hotels. We’ve struck a chord with the sector, and our 2016 line-up again reflects the prominent industry backing behind the show and our combined knowledge and understanding of what it takes to help independent hoteliers upgrade and develop their businesses.”
