For two days, a carefully selected group of 200 suppliers will present the latest hotel products and services. The Independent Hotel Show aims at inspiring and informing the hotelier how he can optimize his company and the guest experience. The ’boutique fair’ mainly focuses on the owners and management of independent and luxury hotels, but the ‘independent thinking’ hotelier of larger hotel companies is also very welcome. In The Concept Lab, among others, they get a taste of the future for the hotel industry. From voice-controlled curtains to a smart service button and biodegradable coffee cups. Trend tours are also given to highlight the most important developments and there is an impressive program with 25 seminars. During the lectures, the diverse, current themes within the hotel industry are discussed. Check out the trends in the video below, the text continues below the video.

Looking forward

Mieke Berkers of the Independent Hotel Show: “After a difficult period, we see that hoteliers want to look ahead and need more than ever to be inspired. They want to know how to run their business in a rapidly changing world. Last year we listened carefully to what exactly they need and we try to respond to this as well as possible with a nice list of companies and speakers. Much attention is paid to themes such as recruiting, retaining and training staff, the mental health of employees and we try to paint a picture of what the travel world will look like in the coming years. And specialists will tell you how you can distinguish yourself from your competition, what the guest expects of the future and how you can protect your brand online.”


“Besides providing information and inspiration, there is a lot of room for networking. After all these months, hoteliers are also very happy to meet colleagues. We have created various places for this, where hoteliers can meet each other in tranquility and safety.” This is amongst others possible at the Social Business Space, the Do Not Disturb Café designed by WeWantMore and The Suite & The Lobby designed by interior designer Roelfen Vos. Mieke Berkers: “We see that guests are finding design increasingly important. That is why we also show what is happening in the field of design during the Independent Hotel Show.”
