The Independent Hotel Show, presented by James Hallam Insurance Brokers – returns to Olympia London on 16 and 17 October loaded with content designed to inspire hoteliers.

Design and innovation are at the core of every Independent Hotel Show. Simply take a look at the brilliant line-up of curated exhibitors, from interiors, tech and wellbeing, to F&B, marketing and finance, plus more. Every year the show works with design partners to create amazing spaces for meeting and networking, and an unmissable programme of seminars delivers sharp insight into trends and practical solutions.

A vision

See ‘The Hotel Room of The Future’ at this year’s show. Designed in partnership with Two’s Company Interior Design – codirected by BIID president Gilly Craft, ‘The Hotel Room of The Future’ is the sequel to 2017’s ‘Perfect Hotel Bedroom’ installation. If you’re keen to know what’s around the corner, step inside and if you want to know more, read the dedicated report containing research gleaned from roundtables with tech, design and hospitality thought-leaders.

What’s on at the show

Central networking space The Lobby, powered by Criton and designed by Cappellini, whose furniture can be found in permanent collections in museums around the world, promises to take visitors to a place ‘between imagination and reality’ with their chosen design.

In The Suite, a haven of calm for VIP hoteliers, speakers, show partners and their guests, see furnishings and interiors featuring bold colours, luxe finishes and eccentric prints thanks to partner Valdivian.

Against the kaleidoscopic backdrop of the Innovation Stage designed by Elli Pop, in partnership with eviivo, hear experts speak about the journey of ‘The Hotel Room of The Future’, and hear panel discussions on ‘Designing the 21st Century’, digital capitalization and more.

It’s all about on-trend tactile velvets and metallic accents at the designed Business Theatre, in partnership with Sky. Hear the industry’s finest discuss how to create an authentic brand through design and embrace ‘place making’ giving your hotel personality and purpose.

Be bold in The Dyson Meeting Space, designed by Galapagos, and take part in facilitated ‘speed networking’ sessions to better engage with industry peers. Whether you’re a young hotelier or a female entrepreneur, seeking financial guidance or aiming to build relationships with regional businesses and more, there will be sessions for everyone.
