The annual HD Expo + Conference, the largest U.S.-based hospitality event of its kind, recently concluded and featured rising stars, design visionaries, award-winning products, and a focus on wellness and DEI.
5,000 designers, architects, brand executives, hoteliers, developers, purchasers, and other attendees from 36 countries gathered at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas to experience new products from the 450 exhibitors, 35 engaging conversations across key activation spaces, and strategic networking events.
Topics during the conference, curated by Hospitality Design (HD) magazine, ranged from culture as community-building, sustainability, and wellbeing to business advice, project case studies, and the future of the industry. From the NEWH Young Entrepreneurs Breakfast to student scholarships such as the HDAC Diversity in Hospitality Scholarship Award, to the Best Booth Awards and the IIDA/HD Expo Product Design Awards, the three-day tradeshow was an ongoing showcase of the best in hospitality and panels forecasting the future.
HD Expo + Conference will return as a three-day event to the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas on May 2-4, 2023.
