2021 Date Change Announcement

New dates: August 24 + 25, 2021

In light of continued concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, including travel restrictions both domestically and internationally, as well as the current government restrictions and limitations on large group gatherings, the Hospitality Design team has made the decision to postpone the annual HD Expo + Conference until August 2021. Originally scheduled to take place May 4-6, 2021, the new show dates are Tuesday, August 24, and Wednesday, August 25, 2021. The show will remain at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

After consulting key exhibitors and attendees, the decision to postpone to August was made to ensure maximum success and safety for all involved. We know the industry is eager to come together again, and we are excited to bring many of the new show floor experiences and programming planned for 2020 fully to life in 2021 to help our industry in an experiential, effective, and thoughtful event.

Now in its 30th year, HD Expo + Conference attracts the world’s most talented and sought-after network of interior designers, architects, hoteliers, owners, operators, developers, and purchasers. Attendees annually come together to see the launch of captivating products and resources, and to stay on top of industry news and trends through thought-provoking conference programming curated by Hospitality Design magazine.
