Given the success achieved in recent editions of HOREQ and the impossibility of meeting the demand for increased space due to the event coinciding with Fitur, after a wide ranging study, the decision has been made to take the significant step of designing a new project that will strengthen the positioning of the sector whilst providing even greater business opportunities.
The entire range of exhibitions offered by HOREQ will now be available at HIP (Hospitality Innovation Plant), the new event organised by IFEMA and its expert partner in the sector, NEBEXT, broadening the content on offer to include innovations and trends in the hotel, restaurant and catering sector.
Positive results at the last edition, with 8,500 participants and more than 200 companies and brands
IFEMA is convening the ninth edition of the Hotels and Tourism Industry Suppliers Trade Show, HOREQ 2017, to coincide with the International Tourism Trade Fair, FITUR, which will take place from 18 -20 January 2017, in Hall 2 of the FERIA DE MADRID trade fair facilities.
This edition of HOREQ attracted a total of 8,500 participants and more than 200 companies and brands
The 8th edition of the Hotels and Tourism Industry Suppliers Trade Show, HOREQ 2016, has just finished, having attracted an enormous number of participants and confirming that this event has become one of the most important on the hotels and tourism suppliers’ trade fair calendar. The trade show was held in Madrid, an undisputed magnet for tourists. These claims are supported by figures, with 8,500 participants (7,000 in 2015) and more than 200 companies and brands (a growth of 7.4% in exhibitors and a more than 20% larger exhibition area), there to showcase the latest innovations in the sector at FERIA DE MADRID on 20 and 22 January. This is the second consecutive year when the event has been organised to coincide with the FITUR trade fair. The strategic decision to hold HOREQ simultaneously as FITUR - both of which are organised by IFEMA - an event with which it has close synergies, had enormously positive results for participants.
HOREQ 2016 positions itself with the tourism industry and once again coincides with FITUR
HOREQ, Professional Event for Suppliers for the Catering and Tourism Sector, bringing together a great amount of loyalty in the sector. Up until now, more than 70% of the participating companies in the last edition, held last January, have confirmed their presence at the next event, organised by IFEMA and which will be held in the FERIA DE MADRID, between 20 and 22 January 2016, once again coinciding with FITUR, International Tourism Fair.
