Independent Hotel Show

UK: Visitor registration for the Independent Hotel Show, presented by James Hallam, has opened and will take place this year at Olympia London on 4-5 October.

The Independent Hotel Show (IHS) brings together hospitality professionals from across the independent, luxury and boutique hotel sector. Over 300 businesses will be represented, including technology, design, and F&B.

This years marks the show’s ninth edition. At the Innovation Stage, in partnership with eviivo, hoteliers and hospitality leaders will discuss 2021 trends and issues – from rebuilding the urban hotel market, to destination gastronomy, to navigating the return of the corporate traveller.

A new addition The Tech Solutions Bar, in partnership with HOSPA, will enable hoteliers to seek out expert advice on solving technology pain points. The Social Business Space acts as a meeting point, and The Lobby, presented by IH Connects, is an expanded area for networking.

The Independent Hotel Show Awards will celebrate the winners of the Independent Hotelier Award and the GM of the Future Award, in partnership with The Master Innholders. The ceremony will also celebrate the 10 UK hotels that win The Good Hotel Guide’s Cesar Award. 

Elena Attanasio, event director for Independent Hotel Show, said: “We’ve been overwhelmed by the enthusiasm of our exhibiting companies and partners. It’s clear that the industry can’t wait to come together, meet face to face and do business at the leading event for the UK independent hotel market.”

Peter Hancock, chief executive of Pride of Britain Hotels and Independent Hotel Show Ambassador, said: “Wild horses could not keep me away from Independent Hotel Show this year, firstly because it’s one of the most informative events our industry has to offer and secondly because I am lucky enough to be involved in the awards presentations on 4 October. Wise hoteliers from all over the UK will be there to learn from their peers and from other industry experts in a stylish and pleasant setting. What’s not to like?”

Serena Von Der Hyde, partner at Georgian House Hotel and director at Victorian House Hotel, added: “As a hotelier, Independent Hotel Show is the best show for me by far because of all the stands and the different sessions on the stage, I would say that 95 per cent of it is relevant to me, compared to larger shows. I’m also much more likely to bump into colleagues of mine and like-minded people, so for me it’s the best show that I attend.”
