HD Expo + Conference is set to return to the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas on August 24 and 25 after the cancellation of its 2020 event. Now in its 30th year, HD Expo + Conference attracts the world’s most talented and sought-after network of interior designers, architects, hoteliers, owners, operators, developers, and purchasers. Attendees annually come together to see the launch of innovative products and resources, and to stay on top of industry news and trends through thought-provoking conference programming curated by Hospitality Design (HD) magazine.

“After having to cancel last year’s show, and then postpone this year’s from May till August, we can’t wait to finally bring the industry we love back together for two days of education, networking, and inspiration,” says Stacy Shoemaker Rauen, editor in chief of HD magazine, and senior vice president, Design Group, Emerald. “We want this to be a celebration of the great design and innovation and resiliency that has continued, despite the challenges we faced over the past year.”

“We’re excited to get back to business, safely. For those who have attended in the past, yes—the show will be a bit smaller. What won’t be different is the strength of the connections made, the innovative products discovered, or the depth of insight and experiences shared. It’s going to be everything the hospitality design industry is about—community, networking, discovery, and encouragement,” added Kevin Gaffney, Group Show director, and vice president, Emerald.

The HD Expo + Conference will debut several new activations, serve as the launch event for hundreds of product manufacturers, and feature a robust lineup of industry veterans, thought leaders, and ones to watch in nearly 30 conference sessions. HD Park, inspired by the industry’s many immersive outdoor experiences, will host all CEU-accredited conference sessions with brand updates and deep dives into new hybrid concepts, while talks at the DesignWell Pavilion will explore the ever-evolving wellness industry in a desert oasis-inspired space crafted by BHDM Design. 

Registration for industry professionals currently starts at $109 for an expo only pass, with full conference options available. For the full agenda and conference lineup, visit www.hdexpo.com
