About the Show

Over 12,500 industry professionals from
40 countries attended HD Expo 2018.

Hospitality's most influential designers, developers, purchasing firms, and ownership groups attend HD Expo because of the unmatched level of original products, education, and inspiration. 



Professional and Personal Growth at HD Expo

Whether it’s the latest and greatest products on the show floor or inspiring talks from top hospitality influencers, HD Expo is designed to take your professional development to the next level. It’s where leading manufacturers unique to HD Expo debut their latest products; where innovative ideas become inspiration and knowledge on and off the show floor; and where networking leads to game-changing connections

Curated by Hospitality Design magazine, the always-engaging, CEU-accredited conference program at HD Expo is a 360-degree look at what’s happening in the industry, as well as what’s to come, ultimately providing you with the tools necessary to propel your career forward. Plus, specialized networking events both during the day and after hours enhance the conference experience and provide plenty of opportunities to connect with industry peers.  

The show is big, transformative, and boldly different—a true experience for the senses, and one not to miss.



Nurture Your Career and Industry Connections

Bringing the pages of Hospitality Design magazine to life, HD Expo’s robust roster of CEU-accredited conference sessions offers a fresh and powerful learning perspective. Hear from a who’s who of the industry—veterans, innovators, and the up-and-coming stars alike, many unique only to HD Expo—as they share their personal journeys, expertise, and case studies to start important conversations across all career levels, which often continue far beyond the conference itself.

HD Expo’s signature event, the HD/ISHP Owners’ Roundtable, for instance, brings attendees face-to-face with developers, brand executives, and decision makers who represent the most significant brand and ownership groups in the world. The keynote is often a visionary (or group of visionaries) who has made a true mark on the industry, while key sessions delve into where development is happening, new influential brands, lessons learned from outside influencers, the business of design, what clients want, and the trends ultimately affecting the industry.

Over three days of inspiration, illuminating exhibits, accredited CEU/LU education, and exceptional networking events, HD Expo is the ultimate place to expand your career and networking reach within the hospitality design community. Register early so you don’t miss the industry event of the year, and leave with the inspiration, connections, and tools you need to succeed.
