LAS VEGAS - Global design leaders and influencers make the annual trip to Las Vegas because they value new perspective as a springboard for inspiration. By stepping away from their daily routine and focusing on HD EXPO, they make connections and discover products that help shape their best work.

When asked why they attend HD Expo, these were two of the responses:


• “HD Expo is a good ‘touch base’—especially for connecting with teams that aren’t working in the New York City area," said Aliya Khan, VP of global design strategies for Marriott International. "Our industry is all about working relationships. HD Expo gets you up from in front of a computer and out there talking to people—seeing what is new and what is next.”
• “The only way to truly immerse yourself in the industry, to truly understand the industry's DNA, is by immersing yourself in the very people that shape it," said Malcomb Berg, founder of EoA Inc. "HD Expo has proven to be able to consistently provide a balance of product exposure, service awareness and personal/professional networking. Anyone intending on staying abreast of industry developments, or staying anywhere near the leading edge of hospitality design tides, needs to attend HD Expo.”
