AHLA, Questex wrap debut The Hospitality Show

LAS VEGAS — The American Hotel & Lodging Association and Questex, the parent company of Hotel Management Magazine, concluded the inaugural The Hospitality Show (also known as The Show) at The Venetian Resort Las Vegas on June 29, hosting more than 3,800 attendees and 321 vendors.

The Show, a new operations and technology event, was created to help hotels operate more efficiently and profitably the by bringing together representatives of the entire hospitality ecosystem.

“We set very high standards for what we wanted to achieve with the first year of The Show, and the industry responded in a resoundingly strong way,” said AHLA President & CEO Chip Rogers. “With an all-star lineup of speakers, who’s who list of attendees, and unparalleled networking opportunities, The Show proved itself as one of hospitality’s most important events. We are excited to continue growing and improving it year after year.”

The Show reached an important milestone prior to its opening when it sold every available vendor space on the expo floor, a rare achievement for a first-year event of this size and scope. “The sold-out status of The Show’s vendor space in its inaugural year is a remarkable accomplishment that motivates us to continuously innovate and reimagine what's possible,” said Questex Hospitality, Travel & Wellness Group President Alexi Khajavi.

The Show attendees attended two days of main-stage sessions led by leaders, solutions-driven programming and case studies of profitable operations as well as more than 13 hours of networking opportunities. 

Next year, The Hospitality Show 2024 will be held at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio Oct. 28-30. Those interested in the 2024 event can complete this form to receive more information.
