Hotel Suppliers Show, considered the Philippines’ biggest hospitality trade fair, will take place on Sept. 21 to 23 at the SMX Convention Centre Manila, Mall of Asia Complex. The show is now on its 8th year and is set to feature even more of the industry’s leading manufacturers, suppliers, and service providers looking to meet buyers and distributors in the Philippines’ growing market of hotels, restaurants, and resorts.

“We’re very excited to hold the eight year of the show,” says Patrick-Lawrence Tan, CEO of Global-Link Exhibitions Specialist. Inc. “Since we launched it in 2010, this has slowly but surely gained a reputation as an ideal platform for hospitality operators to source quality products from leading suppliers and network with some of the top industry players in the country. Building on the success of previous years, we are looking forward to presenting fresh programming and new developments from the product and service sectors for hospitality.” 

Five engaging symposiums will also be happening alongside the show this year, making it truly an industry event not to be missed. 

Trend Tablet editor Cecile Poignant
For a start, the highly influential trend forecaster Cécile Poignant, editor of Trend Tablet, will be presenting The Future of Travel and Hospitality exclusively to participants of the show.

As a trend forecaster, Poignant has worked and consulted with many international brands including Nissan, LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton SE, Philips, Estée Lauder, L’oréal, and Jacobs Douwe Egberts for market studies that have influenced their strategic product developments and innovation processes. When she is not travelling the world to speak at international conferences in front of experienced professionals, Poignant teaches Innovation at Parsons Paris, and Trend Forecasting at ESCP Europe and Institut Français de la Mode (IFM) Paris.

Happening at the same time will be the National Building and Property Management Summit, a conference for business and trade professionals from the property and construction sector; the World Hospitality Market featuring Matteo Grigolini, an Italian hospitality market expert, will tackle the latest trends in the furniture and furnishing aspect of the industry; Management Essentials for Hotels and Resorts: Purchasing, Labor, and Finance by Y&S 1847 Hotel Investment and Development, featuring speakers such as Albert Cailao, Coleen Ordoña, and Jim Wilkinson, as well as a Continuing Professional Development conference by the Philippine Institute of Interior Designers.
