Best Ever Results for Exhibitors at Hospitality Expo RDSWe are pleased to report that Hospitality Expo 2014 was one of the most successful exhibitions since this event was first held as VINTRA in 1977. The event grew by close to 50% with a similar increase in visitor attendance.
The independent, confidential exhibitor survey which was returned by 123 of the 147 exhibitors in the Hospitality Expo indicated the following results for exhibitors:
• Worthwhile 38%
• Very worthwhile 54%
These are among the best results we have ever achieved at a trade show.
A New Era for the Hospitality Industry
78% of the trade visitors attending the event said that they did or will place an order as a result of their visit with 30% saying they would be spending between €10,000 and €1,000,000.
