"The crisis has been brutal. It will take time to recover. But the 2020 edition of EquipHotel is designed to help hotel and restaurant professionals get back on track. "Beatrice Gravier, Director of the Hospitality & Food Division of Reed Exhibitions France, is convinced: EH! 2020 will and must enable hotels and restaurants to successfully emerge from the post Covid-19 crisis."

Over a hundred conferences to explain, reassure and guide

Advice, exchanges, debates, networking: EH! will do its utmost to provide answers and concrete solutions to problems encountered in the field. A survey is also underway to find out what visitors expect from the show, in order to get as close as possible to their concerns. Around a hundred conferences are already scheduled. Conferences in the form of conversations, to open up dialogue with hoteliers and restaurant owners. Facing them: professional organisations, politicians, economists, human resources specialists, psychologists, to analyse, understand and recreate a new dynamic. But also architects, interior designers, designers, specialists in new technologies, to build, rebuild, regain the desire to undertake, to dare, to innovate.

The end of the year focused on recovery 

"We must keep our spirits up. The end of the crisis is certain, but gradual," stresses Beatrice Gravier. Hoteliers and restaurant owners are expected to make a success of it at the EH! trade show, from 15 to 19 November 2020, in Paris Porte de Versailles. It will be an opportunity for them to find out about developments in the sector, meet experts and discover the latest innovations, with a view to the end of the year marked by a recovery and tinged with optimism.
