What is Hotel & Resort Design South and who is it for?

Hotel & Resort Design South is a brand-new hotel product sourcing and networking event. This has been created to connect designers, architects and the global supply chain with hotel & resort brands from the South and LATAM markets along with private island destinations. These are rapidly growing in popularity within the cruise industry. 

What makes Hotel & Resort Design South unique?

Hotel & Resort Design South is unique for a number of reasons:

  •  HRDS is the only trade show of its kind to solely focus on the rapidly expanding hotel & resort design market of the Southern States and LATAM
  • With HRDS being co-located with Cruise Ship Interiors Expo America, visitors to HRDS will benefit from not only being able to source products from even more innovative hotel and resort suppliers, they will be able to network with key figures within the cruise industry. With more and more hotel brands expanding into the cruise & luxury yacht market, the opportunity to share knowledge across the industries is invaluable
