Claimed to be more representative and inclusive of the entire hospitality industry across Africa, The Hotel Show Africa is gearing up to showcase immersive new features which have been developed after industry feedback.

New features also draw on experience gained from organising The Hotel Show Dubai, a flagship event now in its twentieth year. Newly appointed event director for food, hospitality and trade at dmg events, Lynn Chamier, is spearheading the changes, bringing her 33 years of experience to the fore.

New for 2019 are the free-to-attended workshops by SANHA (South African National Halaal Association) hotels on How to attract Halal Tourism and RASA (Restaurant Association of South Africa) for waiters and restaurant managers. Interactive additions start with two live, competitive challenges: The Global Pizza Challenge and the Housekeepers Challenge.

An extensive programme of workshops at the Hospitality Forum will deliver informative presentations and give attendees the chance to speak with industry experts. The Food Next Conference will focus on the Farm to Fork concept, showcasing the ideas and products being developed to meet African hospitality’s demand for safe, traceable nutritious food.

The Hotel Show Africa will also give visitors the chance to explore the Kitchen of the Future, as exhibitors reveal the technological developments set to change food preparation. Visitors will have the chance enjoy a taste of Café Culture as this special show feature will show baristas demonstrating their coffee making skills.
