Cincinnati, Ohio—In the first of several brand extensions it intends for HX: The Hotel Experience, Hospitality Media Group (HMG) has announced plans for a new two-day standalone industry conference, November 11-12, 2018 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York.
“Survey data revealed that attendees are seeking more content from HX,” Dan Hogan, HX brand leader, explained. “HX: The Conference will provide unparalleled information to those who create the guest experience by exploring the latest trends, disruptions, and successes within the hospitality industry.”
HX: The Conference will feature an opening general session and 18 breakouts over the two days, and focus on three content pillars: future trends, technology, and operational excellence. In addition to the conference, HX will continue to produce more than 30 education sessions on the trade show floor in three designed theaters: HX: On Stage Hotel; HX: On Stage F&B; and HX: On Stage Tech. HX: GenFWD education for hospitality students will return with expanded programming in 2018.
“In all, attendees will have more than 50 educational sessions designed for owners, GMs and executive-level hospitality professionals to choose from this fall,” Hogan notes.
To help recommend and review content strategy and direction, HX has formed a Content Advisory Task Force made up of trade and consumer media, exhibitors, and attendees, and is accepting session proposals through June 1, 2018.
