A Review of HOTEC Europe 2012
The 3rd to the 6th October 2012 marked the 14th European HOTEC event; it brought together buyers and suppliers in an innovative three-day program of one-to-one meetings, allowing delegates to talk business and network with their peers in a way that is simply not possible with traditional trade shows and conferences.
This year's event hosted over 100 key supplier companies covering over 40 product categories. Ninety buyers from all facets and areas of hospitality sat for 20 minutes with each requested product supplier gaining insight and sharing knowledge. Each day was planned in a way that allowed attendees to meet, either through arranged meetings or through some of the special team building activities and meals.
A great event for meeting new and existing suppliers in a relaxed and business like atmosphere.
