Independent Hotel Show comes to Miami 2022

IHS London 2021

US: Event organisers Montgomery Group has partnered with Exposition Development Company (ExpoDevCo) to expand the Independent Hotel Show (IHS) into North America.

IHS Miami will take place November 2-3 2022 at the Miami Beach Convention Center. The event will connect independent, boutique and luxury hoteliers with suppliers from the US. 

Founded in London 2012, the event then launched in Amsterdam 2019. 

Shane Hannam, divisional director for Montgomery Group, said: “The Independent Hotel Show brand is synonymous with quality-led suppliers, insightful, expertly curated seminar content and, perhaps most importantly, building communities of like-minded independent hoteliers. 

“Miami is a diverse, culturally rich city with world-class boutique and independent hotels, which prioritise a unique, memorable and luxurious customer experience. With the launch of the Independent Hotel Show Miami, our mission is to broaden our support of the hotelier community to serve a US, Caribbean, and Latin American audience of forward-thinking, independently spirited hoteliers.”

Stephanie Everett, COO and partner for ExpoDevCo, said: “We are thrilled to be partnering with Montgomery Group to expand their successful Independent Hotel Show brand into North America. Our team looks forward to enhancing and building upon the strong connections and relationships that Montgomery Group has developed within the independent hotel community.”

Freddie Peterson, general manager of the Miami Beach Convention Center, said: “We’re delighted to welcome the Independent Hotel Show Miami to Miami Beach Convention Center, and to be supporting Exposition Development Company and Montgomery Group in bringing to life a fantastic new event for the hotelier community.”

Miami has more than 24.2m visitors spending an average $18 billion a year pre-covid. The city has become a destination for business expansion, growth, and investment across numerous industries. 

According to market research agency STR, Greater Miami ranked among the top 10 in the three key metrics used to measure hotel success – occupancy, average daily rate and revenue per available room – and with more than 55 hotels due to open by 2025 the market is buoyant.
