The booming tourism and exhibition industries are continuously increasing the demands for hotel services, representing an excellent opportunity for the local hospitality industry. Responding to this opportunity, HOTELEX will create a one-stop shopping platform of hotel supplies and catering equipment for hospitality clients in western China.
Booths in Hall 3, dedicated to hotel supplies, are quickly selling out. The popularity of the Hall 3 booths is partly the result of the 2015 Hotel Room Service Challenge, which is to be held soon in Chengdu by the China Tourist Hotels Association, and also partly the result of the strong support the exhibitors are showing to HOTELEX. HOTELEX Chengdu will continue to focus on professional buyers from the hospitality and catering industry in Southwest China. HOTELEX will continue to maintain its close relationship with the Sichuan Province Tourism Association and the Restaurant Cuisine Association of Sichuan Province, and supply consumers at the end of the supply chain more quickly and more efficiently by matching suppliers directly with their customers.
Booths in Hall 4, dedicated to fine food and drinks, have been sold out.
