WHY EXHIBIT

We connect you with decision makers and buyers from the likes of Hilton, Marriot, Tsogo Sun, Sun International, Radisson blu as well as owners and managers from independent boutique lodges, guest houses and restaurants.

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) it is undeniably one of  the most exciting hospitality markets in the world.

The Hotel Show is ideally placed to help you capitalise on this growth.

Exhibiting at the show will put your company in front of 1,000’s of regional and international buyers from hotels, restaurants and resorts and with our carefully edited show sectors we’ll ensure that you are perfectly positioned to meet your target clients.
