The three-day event offers many outlets of inspiration. HD Expo is where more than 850 international manufacturers choose to debut new products—from lighting and seating to wallcoverings and furniture. Designers and architects can gain valuable AIA and CEU credits through attending one of over 25 conference sessions. Attendees are able to make game-changing connections and cultivate relationships at multiple networking events. 

"We bring the pages of the magazine to life during the conference sessions at HD Expo," says Stacy Shoemaker Rauen, Hospitality Design magazine's editor in chief. "From panels showcasing new hotel brands and development hotspots, industry veterans and rising stars will delve into standout projects and take on some of the most top-of-mind issues and trends."

Conference highlights include the show's signature event, the HD/ISHP Owners' Roundtable, where attendees have the chance to personally engage with more than 30 hotel executives; the opening session CEO Talk, which will feature leaders from some of the top lifestyle and luxury hotel companies sharing their views on the industry. Additional panels exploring how hospitality is influencing other industries—and vice versa, such as exquisite restaurants in unexpected places, and a development helping to return a beach town to its former glory.

At the 2016 HD Expo, over 10,670 attendees representing 47 countries marked HD Expo's largest recorded audience to date, and that growth is expected to continue in 2017. While square footage was increased to accommodate additional exhibitors, floor space is already near maximum capacity and expected to reach over 265,000 square feet.

"We are the premier hospitality design event and are continuously looking for new and innovative ways to inspire," says Liz Somerville, Emerald Exposition's group show director. "We are enhancing exhibitor creativity and maximizing the attendee experience in 2017 by improving the layout and navigation of the show floor."
