“Hospitality is a highly dynamic sector: a sector that’s constantly innovating, constantly reinventing itself. Innovation – a vital motivation for our exhibitors, and a key focus of interest for our visitors – is everywhere you look at EquipHotel. This year’s INNOV16 competition (previously called Equip’Innov) showcases a selection of innovations that are smart and attractive in equal measure – in a word, they’re inspiring!”
Corinne Menegaux, Director of EquipHotel.
INNOV16, putting innovation centre-stage at EH16
This year exhibitors put forward some 350 innovations – 150 more than in 2014. A committee of experts drew up shortlists of nominees and then these innovations were voted on by buyers.
With two weeks to go until the exhibition, the jury of experts and buyers has revealed the 2016 winners in the competition’s eight categories:
- FITTINGS AND RENOVATION
- INTERIOR DESIGN, LIGHTING, FURNITURE (INDOOR AND OUTDOOR)
- KITCHEN EQUIPMENT, HOT DRINKS AND BAR
- HYGIENE AND CLEANING, LINEN AND PROFESSIONAL TEXTILES
- FOOD PRODUCTS, DRINKS
- SPA, BATHROOM
Innovations in the spotlight!
You can see all these innovations right now on the exhibition website: www.equiphotel.com. They will also be highlighted at the show itself, with an innovations wall, special signage on stands and a dedicated Innovations Trail in the visitor’s guide.
