Now in its 26th edition, HD Expo Las Vegas returns to a city renowned for its hospitality to present trends and new products by leaders in the industry

It is no coincidence that a hotel, namely the prestigious Mandalay Bay, is hosting HD Expo, a three-day event dedicated to contract and hospitality that has been held annually for the last 26 years in sunny Las Vegas.

The so-called “Global capital of entertainment” expands its better-known horizons to host, from 3 to 5 May, an event that is very important for the industry and for the Made in USA trade fair calendar, which attracts a specialist international public consisting of interior designers, architects, owners, companies, developers and industry players.
Last year, HD Expo, whose exhibition space is increasingly expanding, was attended by over 850 companies and 11,000 participants from 47 countries.
The Conference Sessions by industry specialists are an integral part of the event, as well as the innovative Social Hub, which this year was designed by Rockwell Group: inspired by an ’80s coffee shop, the lounge is a multifunctional space with a bar and small theater for talks and meetings, which promotes networking between exhibitors and visitors.
Hosted in the city that has made hospitality its core value, the event is a melting pot of trends and a sounding board for industry innovations.
