Javits Convention Center in New York, November 8-10, 2015. HX featured 455 exhibitors and 12,000+ registered attendees.
With all new environmental treatment, session areas, speakers, and event highlights, the multi-million dollar renovation made a big impression on lodging and foodservice executives who were in attendance. Featuring areas on the show floor such as HX: Connect, where attendees and exhibitors could sit and meet face-to-face or just re-charge from the busy show floor, and HX: Studio that utilized its space to interview top hospitality industry executives, speakers and exhibitors of the show.

This year socialtables took home the win with its event planning software.
