LAS VEGAS, NV — HD Expo + Conference, the largest U.S.-based hospitality event of its kind, returns to the Mandalay Bay Convention Center April 26-28.

The annual conference and expo aims to bring together the entire hospitality design community—interior designers, architects, hoteliers, owners, operators, developers, and purchasers for strategic networking events, exclusive product premieres, and bespoke experiences.

Hospitality Design (HD) magazine curates the conference featuring more than 100 design visionaries, innovators, and thought leaders to share their expertise on timely and thought-provoking topics including in-depth CEU-accredited sessions. Over three days, attendees will explore concepts and products that showcase the best of hospitality and its broad influence on sustainability and wellbeing as well as residential, retail, workplace, and more.

“We’re excited to build on the momentum that started last August when HD Expo + Conference staged live for the first time in two years. With the return of a three-day format and Party by the Pool, we’re adding even more opportunities for people to connect, which is what hospitality is all about,” says Kevin Gaffney, group show director and vice president, Emerald, HD Expo + Conference’s parent company.

“It was great to bring the industry together in 2021, but now, we are looking forward to grow on what we did in August and bring back some of the original elements of the show,” says Stacy Shoemaker Rauen, editor in chief of Hospitality Design magazine, and SVP, Design Group, Emerald. “From the exciting conference programming and the activations and product launches on the show floor, this year’s show will be a true celebration of the hospitality industry—and one not to miss.”


With the goal of idea-sharing and inspiration, HD Expo’s conference programming presents a who’s who of the industry—up and comers and veterans alike including Grupo Habita, Hyatt, Host Hotels & Resorts, Marriott, Roar, Rockwell Group, Highgate, Sands, WATG, Gensler, HBA, Holland America Group, Proper Hotels, and Bunkhouse—who will dive into more than 40 timely topics, many taken from the pages of the magazine.
