NoVacancy: Australia’s largest hotel and accommodation industry expo returns

by | 02 Mar 2021 | Events, News

After a hiatus in 2020, NoVacancy Hotel+Accommodation Industry Expo is set to make a triumphant return on 1-2 June 2021 at ICC Sydney Exhibition Centre.

Boasting the coveted title of Australia’s largest exhibition and learning event in the hotel and accommodation industry, the free-to-attend event is open for visitor registrations and aims to reunite the industry to leverage opportunities for growth and improvement along the road to recovery.

With more than three months to go until the show stages in June, NoVacancy has almost 200 confirmed exhibiting companies anxiously awaiting the opportunity to showcase their latest innovations and solutions. Confirmed companies will showcase an extensive range of solutions for all departments of accommodation operations including amenities, guest experience, technology and software, housekeeping, energy efficiency, sustainability and more, all aimed at optimising operations and maximising profitability.

Additionally, NoVacancy will be co-located with Hospitality Design Fair, the only event in Australia focused exclusively on interior design and furniture for hotels, bars, restaurants and clubs. Attendees who register to attend NoVacancy will have full access to Hospitality Design Fair to connect and collaborate with design professionals and to discover, experience and source the best and latest design elements for their properties.

NoVacancy will host seven function-specific summits whose educational content correlates directly to vital departments within the industry. New in 2021, the Hotel Technology Summit will share insights on the latest technologies and the opportunities they present including AI, VR, robots, 5G and more, while the Energy Efficiency & Sustainability Summit will highlight how to implement sustainable initiatives that reduce costs, improve operating efficiency and deliver better corporate social responsibility for properties.

Thanks to overwhelming demand, the Hotel Leaders’ Summit, Small Hoteliers’ Summit, Hotel Marketing Summit, and Revenue & Distribution Summit will continue to provide valuable insights for their audiences. DesignTalks will also return, again delving into hotel and hospitality design trends and best practice, as part of Hospitality Design Fair.

With a reputation for the hottest networking on the industry’s calendar, the organiser has further invested in a ‘matchmaking’ technology platform that allows the attendees and exhibitors to plan ahead and connect with each other, schedule demonstrations and organise catch-ups with current suppliers. After more than a year of disruption to the industry, it’s seen as an important opportunity to facilitate connections that will help properties to recover.

NoVacancy Hotel+Accommodation Industry Expo takes place at ICC Sydney, Darling Harbour on Tuesday, 1 and Wednesday, 2 June 2021 from 10am to 5pm daily. Complimentary tickets are available to industry professionals who pre-register online at
