To stay competitive and keep up-to-date with all the latest trends, choose from 20+ free-to-attend seminars and workshops delivered by more than 50 industry thought leaders across three stages.

And if that’s not enough, we’ve got all this and much more.

What’s on?

The Hotel Room of the Future designed by Two’s Company Interiors

Our exciting initiative presents an immersive representation and report uncovering the hotel room of tomorrow, today. Designed and realised by Two’s Company Interiors, The Hotel Room of the Future aims to educate, excite and inspire. Two's Company is the joint collaboration between BIID President Gilly Craft and BIID Member Nick Sunderland.

The Meeting Space designed by Galapagos

The Meeting Space provides hosted facilitated networking sessions for hoteliers. We’re not all natural networkers, so the aim is to remove the pain points, making it easier for you to make new connections and widen your networks.

IHTech Quest

Technology is evolving at an unprecedented speed and shows no sign of slowing. Hotel customers expect a better-than-home experience when they’re staying in a hotel and this means more than just the basics of online booking functionality, Wi-Fi and TV. The Independent Hotel Show strives to deliver visionary, market leading technology solutions and as a direct result we have introduced the IHTech Quest. Find out more.

The Suite designed by Valdivian

The Suite is our exclusive space offering hospitality to our VIP hoteliers, speakers, partners and their guests. This stylish, comfortable haven of calm away from the busy show floor will also play host to some of the show’s special events.

The Lobby powered by Criton, designed by Cappellini

Grab a coffee or a glass of fizz and catch up with contacts in the central networking space The Lobby, powered by Criton, designed by Cappallini. Similar to a modern hotel lobby, it serves as an area to work, network and have meetings, seamlessly transitioning from a coffee lounge to champagne bar as the day progresses.

The Independent Hotel Show is complimentary to attend and you can register your place here
