The 2017 Hospitality Design Exposition & Conference will be held May 3-5 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. The 26th year of the premier show will host interior designers, architects, purchasing agents, owners, operators, brand executives, and other hospitality design professionals.
Organized by Hospitality Design magazine, the three-day event offers many outlets of inspiration. HD Expo is where more than 850 international manufacturers choose to debut new products-from lighting and seating to wallcoverings and furniture. Designers and architects can gain valuable AIA and CEU credits through attending one of over 25 conference sessions. Attendees are able to make game-changing connections and cultivate relationships at multiple networking events.
"We bring the pages of the magazine to life during the conference sessions at HD Expo," says Stacy Shoemaker Rauen, Hospitality Design magazine's editor in chief. "From panels showcasing new hotel brands and development hotspots, industry veterans and rising stars will delve into standout projects and take on some of the most top-of-mind issues and trends."
Conference highlights include the show's signature event, the HD/ISHP Owners' Roundtable, where attendees have the chance to personally engage with more than 30 hotel executives; the opening session CEO Talk, which will feature leaders from some of the top lifestyle and luxury hotel companies sharing their views on the industry. Additional panels exploring how hospitality is influencing other industries-and vice versa, such as exquisite restaurants in unexpected places, and a development helping to return a beach town to its former glory.
