On the first day, November 10, there will be a Hospitality Leadership Forum where industry-specific topics will be discussed. Experts will talk about issues of interest and importance for the various groups that attend the show. Everyone and anyone with connections to the lodging and food service industries can benefit from the opportunity to listen to and discuss the hospitality trends of the future.

After a full day of education and interaction with the experts, attendees will have the next three full days to walk the exhibition floor and visit the large and incredibly diverse number of booths. Exhibitors will represent the world of decor, including such things as furniture, lighting, artwork and signage. There will be a good number of booths showing the latest in software and technology.

In the highly competitive and challenging food service environment, buyers will see the new equipment, learn how menus are changing and interact with some of the biggest uniform providers in the country. All types of food and beverage displays will be featured. There will be everything from suppliers of desserts, coffee and tea to non-alcoholic beverages and beer, wine and liquor. Not to be left out are the exhibitors who can offer green cleaning products and different types of guest amenities.

According to the event’s organizers, the lodging industry accounts for 33% of all the buyers that will be roaming the exhibition space. Hotel management companies will be among those looking for the newest products that can benefit their operations.

It is recommended that participants allow at least two days to be able to see all of the exhibits. The Javits Center has set aside more than 125,000 square feet of indoor space to accommodate all of the vendors. In terms of size, that is the rough equivalent of a typical Home Depot store, including the separate, outdoor garden area.

Whether you are a hotel owner or responsible for buying the fruits and vegetables for a restaurant, there will be plenty to see. Guests are free to roam around as they please. There will be places to grab a bite to eat or, you can step outside for a while and head over to nearby Herald Square and take a walk inside Macy’s flagship store. Enjoy the show and enjoy New York City.
