The Irish Hotels Federation’s 2015 Showtel Trade Exhibition, which is a part of the IHF’s Annual Conference, will take place in the Slieve Russell Hotel, Ballyconnell, Co. Cavan on the 23rd and 24th February 2015.
The event is being held against a backdrop of increased optimism in the hotel and guesthouse sector on foot of an upturn in the domestic market and an almost 10% growth in overseas visitors year to date.
Hotel and Guesthouse owners are increasing investment in their properties following on last year’s strong tourism performance. Showtel provides an ideal opportunity for industry suppliers to promote their latest services, products and trends and to demonstrate how they can assist hoteliers with their business and provide them with the tools to compete in today’s increasingly competitive marketplace.
IHF Showtel organiser, Stephanie Keating says: “Showtel is now over 20 years old and is the Irish hotel industry’s leading trade exhibition. It’s a great opportunity for suppliers of goods and services to the hospitality sector to showcase new and existing products to hotel and guesthouse owners and general managers – the target audience when it comes to making a decision for the business.”
“With Irish hotels continuing to face very competitive market conditions, the key focus for our members is on delivering the highest quality of service and value for money so as to encourage repeat business. Another priority is increased investment in product development, upgrades to premises and general refurbishment,” says Ms Keating. “Showtel helps address these needs by providing an exclusive forum for hotel owners and general managers to meet with industry suppliers to secure the best products and services to meet their business requirements.”
The IHF anticipates significant interest in the 2015 event following an enormously successful conference and exhibition in Trim earlier this year.
