HD Americas, a hospitality design trade show presented by Emerald Expositions, will take place September 16–17 at the Miami Beach Convention Center. The show will focus on the Latin American market, including the Caribbean and South and Central America.
More than 4,000 interior designers, architects, developers, specifiers, and restaurant and hotel owners and operators are expected to attend. The keynote speaker for the show is architect Arthur Casas, founder of Studio Arthur Casas in São Paulo, Brazil. He will discuss his unique take on modernism and how the “chaotic urbanism” of his native city drew him to the style he has applied to residential, commercial, and hospitality spaces, as well as to furniture design.
Attendees can also choose to attend a range of accredited CEU conference sessions and networking events held during the two-day show. Leaders in the hospitality industry will headline ten presentations and offer Q&A sessions after each discussion. The conferences will have a strong focus on the rapid expansion of the hospitality industry into the Latin American and Caribbean marketplace.
For one conference session, a group comprised of members from Jones Lang LaSalle, Wyndham, and VOA Associates will present findings from a white paper they developed exploring growth in the Latin American market. The report states that approximately 425,900 new rooms are projected to be built in the next decade in four major markets—Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, and Peru.
Owners, developers, brand executives, and decision makers who work in Latin America will share their experiences as host of the “Owners’ Roundtable.” These hosts will switch tables every 10 minutes, allowing attendees to hear multiple viewpoints in one session.
