The accommodation industry’s first national trade show, a must-attend!

What happens when you bring the biggest gathering of accommodation industry decision makers from across the region, to the largest convention & exhibition centre in Australia, with hundreds of product and technology suppliers and more seminars than any event in the country?

Finally a national trade show for the industry, meet the NoVacancy Accommodation Business Expo coming this July to Sydney.

Tradeshow vs conference – what’s the difference?

You’ll be well aware of the conference format, you pay hundreds sometimes thousands of dollars to attend a program of speakers (usually all in one track/room), an included lunch and some great networking. You need to block out 1 – 2 full days, and if there’s a session you’re not interested in, you’ll likely spend it checking your emails, or even Facebook!

So what is a tradeshow? Free-to-attend for industry professionals, at the heart of a tradeshow or ‘exhibition’ are products and services that can help you run a better business. Thousands of them, from hundreds of suppliers from all areas – world class technology and software, marketing & branding, interiors & refurbishment, through to essential services you procure every day – a one-stop shop for running and improving your property. It’s your opportunity to walk through technology demonstrations, unearth full ranges of products, and ask the hard questions that relate specifically to your property type.

And then there’s seminars, for free, and plenty of them. At NoVacancy this July there will be more than 45 seminars spread across 4 separate theatres covering a wide variety of practical, tactical learnings you can implement in your daily role. Pick and choose the sessions that suit your availability and your interests.
