About the event

South Tyrol & Tourism belong together: with more than 33 million overnight stays per year, the region is ranked 3rd in Italy by the number of overnight stays (only Venice and Rome have more). The tourism sector is constantly striving to refine its facilities and services to meet the needs of the modern tourist and to offer authentic places and experiences. The results of this effort are not only recorded in annual tourist turnover (over 3 billion Euros) but also through many awards on national and international guides. Today, South Tyrol is more than just a popular tourist destination – it is a renowned brand and conveys a certain lifestyle.

South Tyrol & Tourism in numbers:

  • 27 Michelin stars
  • +10,000 accommodation facilities
  • +7.3 million arrivals
  • +222,000 beds

The Hotel trade show plays an important role in this field: for more than 40 years, the Exhibition has been the meeting point & information exchange place for hotel owners and managers, restaurant operators, entrepreneurs, innovative startups and tourism associations. Hotel covers the full spectrum of products, services, equipment and technologies for the hotel and food sector and offers an overview of the latest trends in this industry. It is a must for all companies that want to present their products to leading hotel and gastronomy players in the region and beyond.

The success of Hotel in numbers:

  • 600 exhibitors
  • 22,000 trade visitors
  • 25,000 square meter exhibition space
  • 12,300 newsletter subscribers

Focus on Safety and Confidence

Our trade fairs live above all from satisfied partners, exhibitors and visitors. We are aware that this year’s autumn trade fairs are taking place in a challenging environment and it is our top priority to deal with this situation responsibly. Together with the relevant authorities, we have therefore drawn up a safety protocol that enables us to hold our events safely. We firmly believe that it is important to send a signal of confidence together. Because, as a Chinese proverb says, “when the winds of change blow, some build walls and others windmills.” Let us build windmills.
