The Hospitality Expo Starts Today At The RDS

With close to 200 exhibitors now confirmed for the overall event and over 1,000 trade visitors already registered to attend, Hospitality Expo 2014 looks set to the biggest and most successful exhibition in the series since 2008. 

The organisers behind the EXPO, SDL Exhibitions, want to meet and greet all visitors to Hospitality Expo with the warmest welcome possible including a complimentary catalogue, free copies of the Hospitality Ireland Magazine and a complimentary refreshment courtesy of Milano Coffee.

The Hospitality Summit during Hospitality Expo is your chance to hear Ireland's the top industry leaders in business strategy, technology, social media, new product offerings, customers service, staff retention and motivation, and much, much more... 

As official media partners of Hospitality Expo, we at Hospitality Ireland are really looking forward to this year’s show, which is already promising to be a must-see event for operators right across the industry. This will be the largest Hospitality Expo event since 2008, with over 120 exhibitors plus Chef Ireland in a specially designed Food Village. Elsewhere there will be over 40 exhibitors and over two dozen different competitions and presentations in an adjoining hall. In addition, Stonehouse will run their event alongside, adding to interest at the RDS.

There are "three areas where we dedicate to business meetings,” explains Sean Lemass, managing director of SDL Exhibitions, who run the Hospitality Expo. “Firstly, ‘The Hospitality Summit’, where we have the likes of Google, Trivago, Trip Advisor, CBRE and Dalata Hotels. With that we have four different sessions set, one each morning and one each evening, to complete two hours of conferencing. Then we have the ‘Skills and Training Village’, where James Murphy and DIT have put some presentations and one-to-one's together. Then we have the ‘Technology Theatre’ where we have some talks going on. That is the seven-hour conference side to it.”
