Innovation is the key to interpreting the new edition of EquipHotel, which opens on Sunday, with new products, a new concept and a new Director at the helm of the biennial

A few days from the start of EquipHotel, the new products are being prepared that will enliven the new edition of the exhibition that showcases the world of hospitality.
From Sunday, November 6 to Thursday, November 10, at the Paris Expo Porte de Versailles, innovation will be to the fore, conceptually as much as in products, in the hotel and catering sector, but not only that: indeed, for more than 50 years, the event has been an incubator of trends and a source of inspiration for architects, decorators and designers.    

This is precisely the focus of the Innov16 project, a selection of the 350 innovations put forward by the exhibitors (150 more than in the 2014 edition) chosen by a committee of experts, then submitted for voting by buyers. A collection of exceptional products is the result, broken down into 8 subject categories:  from Porcelanosa’s Xlight Premium Collection in the Fitting-out and Restoration categories to Mood by Christofle in the Articles for the Table section, and Shower Capsules by Skinjay in the Spa and Bathroom category, along with many others.
And while catering professionals are the primary targets of the event, other fields are included.  A team of international experts has contributed to the most eagerly awaited part of EquipHotel: Studio16, a temporary space of 3,000 square metres and on several floors, that presents the new codes and developments in the hotel-catering sector: a fulcrum of ideas and products in six spaces (Outdoor, Lobby, Let’s Work, In the room, Resto des Chefs, Glass Gallery) coordinated by Thierry Virvaire.  

In advance of the opening of the exhibition, the appointment was announced of Boris Provost as director of the EquipHotel trade fair.

So everything is ready for an edition to be experienced and discovered.
