IHS22 agenda: Sustainability, staffing and more

UK: The Independent Hotel Show 2022 (IHS22) has revealed its seminar programme for the event’s tenth edition, supported by Boutique Hotel News.

Sustainability, staffing and strategies for success will be the key themes for this year’s event, taking place 4-5th October at Olympia London. 

Day one will kick off with a session on The Inclusive Hotel Room, an interactive feature designed by Cocoon & Bauer. Moderated by Hotel Designs’ editor Hamish Kilburn, the conversation will focus on the ways in which design can prevent sensory overload with insights shared by Peter Turner of Cocoon & Bauer along with Nicholas Sunderland of NSI Design.

Across two main stages – the Innovation Stage in partnership with eviivo, and the Hotel Vision stage in partnership with HotelPartner – other sessions include:

• What does it cost to be sustainable? Finance and funding in the world of ESG 

• How do we join together as a community to fill the hole in hospitality staffing?

• Hotels are not just a place to lay your head: The future is multifaceted 

• Elevating the hotel restaurant

Eden Hotel Collection’s Tara Robinson, who is speaking in the session about multifaceted hotel experiences, said: “I’m delighted to be part of a live panel at the show this year. It’s always an event not to be missed: full of innovation, ideas and inspirational speakers. Plus, the show is totally unique as it’s geared specifically around the boutique hotel market.”

At the Social Business Space, sponsored by Planet and designed by Taner’s Sons, conversations from the main stages will be continued in the form of informal roundtable discussions for hoteliers wishing to explore the issues further and hear from peers in the industry.
