A landmark French event for the hospitality business, EquipHotel Paris has been providing technical solutions and opportunities to accelerate business growth in the industry for over 50 years.
With more than 105,000 professionals, 1600 exhibitors and 133 countries represented, it 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 this year will exclusively showcase multiple trends based around five main sectors: Restauration, Design, Well-being, 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 experience, 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, Equip Hotel 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 ephemeral establishment: STUDIO18.
Set up on a new, supersized scale, this space is designed to be inspirational and inclusive, where the visitor-spectator becomes an actor; living an exclusive experience by interacting with the setting presented.
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.
