Five Things Hoteliers should know about Hotelympia 2016
If you’re a hotelier based in the UK, chances are you’ve been to London’s Hotelympia exhibition or at least heard of it. As the biggest food service and hospitality event in Britain, it prides itself on giving industry professionals access to the most innovative products on the market and insight into the latest trends in the sector.
This is the revolutionary washing machine manufacturer Xeros’ first time at Hotelympia so we had a chat to the organisers to put together these top five tips for any hospitality professionals attending the show this year between February 29th and March 3rd.
Look who’s talking…
Each year, Hotelympia attracts some of most high profile industry thought leaders who take part in engaging panel discussions, and this year is no exception.
With crowdfunding proving to be one of the hottest topics in the hospitality sector at the moment, a dedicated panel including Eric Partaker, co-CEO of Chilango, Fraser Thompson, CEO of Chapel Down and Thomas Davies, Chief Investment Officer, Seedrs, will debate the risks and rewards of raising capital through crowdfunding. This is happening on Monday February 29 at 3pm on The Stage.
Three of this industry’s key buzzwords recently have been discovery, delivery and efficiency and these three topics are set to be discussed in the technology-focused HOSPACE Hub. The hub will welcome a number of key influencers onto its stage including Google UK’s Head of Hospitality, Terri Scriven, who will be talking about how sites can make the most of digital channels.
What are the technology highlights?
Each year, Hotelympia brings visitors the very latest technological products that are relevant to the hospitality sector all under one roof. Here are some highlights for 2016:
