(HOTEL) Top hospitality trends on show at The Hotel Show Africa
Africa’s biggest hospitality trade and conference gets bigger in 2019
The Hotel Show, Africa’s leading event for the hospitality industry, gets underway at the Gallagher Convention Centre in June, as part of the broader Africa Trade Week.
Now in its third year, The Hotel Show Africa 2019 aims to grow on its successes, in which nearly 3,400 visited the show over three days. Attracting GMs, owners, operators, procurement managers, designers, developers and the all-important frontline hospitality personnel, The Hotel Show Africa offers an unmissable opportunity for suppliers to showcase latest products, ideas and trends shaping our industry’s future.
The Hotel Show is now co-located with Africa’s Big 7 and SAITEX, bringing together over 10,000 international industry professionals from 53 countries and over 500 exhibitors from more than 40 countries for three days of business negotiations, networking and knowledge-sharing.
The Hotel Show showcases international products and innovations for hotels, restaurants, cafes, taverns, shebeens and food outlets, and is the ideal platform for stakeholders to network and discover the latest in services, décor, furniture, hospitality technologies, uniforms and more.
The Hotel Show also features live events, training workshops and competitions, including the Africa Housekeeper League of Champions challenge, in which hotel teams race against the clock to prepare rooms to the highest standards in front of a panel of expert judges. At the co-located Café Culture workshops, visitors will enjoy free barista and mixology training throughout the full three days of the show.
Running alongside The Hotel Show, the Hospitality Leadership Forum will see over 90 expert speakers will take to the stage to address burning issues, trends and opportunities in the sector.
“The Hotel Show connects decision makers from leading hospitality chains and independent hotels, lodges and guesthouses with suppliers and service providers from across the globe. With over 64,000 new hotel rooms in the pipeline and governments such as South Africa spearheading a new 5-in-5 tourism growth strategy (which aims to add five million more tourists to South Africa by 2020) hospitality is undeniably one of the most exciting hospitality markets in the world, and The Hotel Show is ideally placed to help stakeholders capitalise on this growth,” says Lynn Chamier, Event Director at dmg events.
The Hotel Show will be staged as part of Africa Trade Week from 23rd – 25th June 2019, at the Gallagher Convention Centre, Johannesburg. For more information, visit https://thehotelshowafrica.com.
