Australia’s Largest Hotel and Accommodation Industry Expo Returns

After a successful relaunch in Sydney last July and winning the Best Tradeshow Under 10,000m2 at the Exhibitions and Events Association of Australia National Awards, the NoVacancy Hotel + Hospitality Business Expo is set to make a triumphant return on the 24-25 of July at the ICC Sydney Exhibition Centre.

Boasting the coveted title of Australia’s largest exhibition and learning event in the hotel and accommodation industry, the free-to-attend event is now open for visitor registrations and aims to supersede 2018 attendance with a target of more than 4,000 industry professionals in 2019.

With just a few months to go until the show stages, NoVacancy has already surpassed last years’ exhibitor count as it tracks towards sell-out and an anticipated 200 companies showcasing their solutions. Confirmed companies will showcase an extensive range of solutions for all departments of accommodation operations, including amenities, software, interiors, furniture, robots, dining, energy efficiency, sustainability and more, all aimed at optimise operations and maximising profitability.

Event Director, Brad Langton added, “The team working on NoVacancy spend 12 months researching and curating vendors and suppliers that can make a real difference to owners and operators. Quite often this reaches beyond traditional expected categories to value-enhancing solutions many accommodation industry professionals just aren’t thinking of.”

“Discovering innovation that can save them time and money at an event that costs nothing to attend is a very compelling offering and something not seen anywhere else in Australia for the industry. To add further value, we’ve launched 7 job function specific education summits that are also free to attend and cover all core functions across accommodation management and operations.”

NoVacancy will play host to the Hotel Leaders Summit, Hotel Marketing Summit and the Restaurant Reinvented Summit on Wednesday 24th of July, and the Revenue & Distribution Summit, Small Hotelier Summit and Hotel Engineering & Maintenance Summit on Thursday 25th of July. Running across both days will be the NoVacancy Design talks, delving into hotel and hospitality design trends and best practice.

With a reputation for the hottest networking on the industry’s calendar, the organiser has further invested in a ‘matchmaking’ technology platform that allows the industry to pre-plan and connect with each other, schedule demonstrations and organise catch-ups with current suppliers.

NoVacancy Hotel + Hospitality Business Expo takes place at the International Convention Centre Sydney, Darling Harbour on Wednesday 24th and Thursday 25th of July from 10am to 5pm daily.
