HD Expo 2016 is the ultimate connector to the hospitality design industry, and this year showcases the best in hospitality design with a theme of “A higher degree of hospitality” this year. The theme evokes our memories of university days, and the higher learning we achieved while building lifelong relationships.
Join us in Las Vegas, Nevada on May 4-6 as 800 exhibits and tens of thousands of designers, architects and design-minded hotel owners converge on the Mandalay Bay Convention center for HD Expo 2016.
Since this is the 25th anniversary of the largest and most prestigious event in the industry, you will find a special array of people, conference sessions and special events to make your visit even more impactful to your design success.
We feature sessions with an AMAZING lineup of people moving the needle, setting new trends, and shaking up our industry:
Ford Fry, chef—a hot new addition to our Chef Meets Designer session
Brad Wilson, Ace Hotels—on our Hyper Local panel
Raul Leal, Virgin Hotels—speaker on Brand Identity
Matthew Goodrich, AvroKO—speaking with Griz Dwight on Dining in Style
Kristie Goshow, Viceroy Hotel Group—joining our Creating Extravagance panel
Owners’ Roundtable participants include: Larry Traxler, Hilton; Bashar Wali, Provenance; Gregory Stanford, Marriott, to name a few. Find a full list of Owners’ Roundtable participants on our website at: www.hdexpo.com
And of course, you don’t want to miss Michael Bedner, Tony Chi and Adam D. Tihany as they engage in a casual, spirited conversation about the history of hospitality design, and the way doing business has changed – and how it hasn’t – during our Those Were the Days: Veterans Weigh In session.
The Social Hub, on the show floor, is where everyone comes together to relax and meet other attendees. We are thrilled to announce that Graduate Hotels, helmed by brilliant designer Andrew Alford, chief creative officer of the brand’s parent company, AJ Capital Partners, will be creating our Social Hub space this year. The whimsical new brand is reinventing college-town properties with a preppy-collegiate flavor and Alford is bringing that same aesthetic to the Social Hub.
A truly impressive lineup – and we haven’t even scratched the surface. Plan to join us at this grand celebration! Register now using this link, and your expo pass is free: www.registration3.experientevent.com
