EquipHotel Trade Show at Paris Exhibition Center Porte de Versailles
All those who are passionate about the world of hotels and restaurants cannot miss the EquipHotel trade show, the international reference event for all professionals in the sector.
Every two years, the show gives companies, but also individuals who wish to enter these vast and exciting professions, the opportunity to discover innovations in terms of services and products.
During 5 days, conferences, master classes, workshops and experiential spaces are organized to allow visitors to meet professionals and take the time to discuss with them to fine tune their projects or to test new products not yet known by the public.
If you are in the process of setting up your own business, this is a good time to learn about running a business, best practices and new features for each industry. A new network of business contacts, new leads for your project, this is only part of what you can discover by attending the show.
EquipHotel allows you to immerse yourself in all aspects of these complex professions. Whether you are a decorator, an architect, or an expert in the digital field, don't miss this opportunity to learn. Representatives of all the professional branches of the hotel and restaurant industry will be present to inform you.
In order to bring together this wide variety of disciplines, the show has been structured around 5 main themes.
The first one, “Projecting into the future and sustainability” focuses on new CSR practices. A very current issue in the hotel industry is certainly the transition towards a more committed attitude towards the question of ecology, thanks to the choice of local products from short circuits, energy saving and a reflection on the well-being of employees.
This last point is in line with the second theme, “Gaining in attractiveness”. Today, it is more important than ever to value and recognize the know-how of the youngest players in the hotel and restaurant industry through training, flexible working hours, encouraging remuneration, and more, in order to create the great talents of tomorrow.
The third theme, “Creating beauty with goodness”, concerns attention to detail in the creation of luxurious, but also environmentally friendly places. In this approach, craftsmanship, art and know-how play an essential role.
The fourth theme, “Focusing on self-care”, puts well-being at the heart of the business, and therefore spa, thalassotherapy and cocooning moments, in order to be able to better welcome a varied clientele, as in all major cities.
Finally, digital could not be missed! The last theme, “Thinking digital with a human face”, focuses on a new way of organizing the daily life of hoteliers and restaurateurs. The digitalization of certain tasks simplifies work, but it must not be at the expense of human relations.
The show has more than 1200 exhibitors. To facilitate your visit, thematic paths are organized. You can filter the exhibitors you wish to meet according to the theme that interests you the most, or also according to the sectors of activity.
Sourcing, networking but also inspiration and emotion are the keywords of the show, but more in general of the hotel and restaurant business.
The amateurs of competitions will be able to attend competitions organized for the occasion. As for all the other events, you will have a large choice!
Lovers of traditional French cuisine will find their happiness at the International Passion Trophy. Organized since 2001, this competition aims to promote French cuisine. Chefs from all over the world will have to create a menu composed of starter, main course and dessert for 8 people on predefined themes. An exciting challenge that will make you want to taste traditional dishes!
French tradition also means oenology! Enthusiasts will be able to attend the “Concours du Meilleur Sommelier de France”, a competition organized every two years, which rewards the best performing professional by evaluating the subtlety of his nose and the finesse of his palate.
As you can see, there is something for everyone. Whatever your project or your passion, at EquipHotel, you can find what you need to make it happen or simply to discover the latest innovations.
