IHMRS and BDNY 2014

-->I attended both IHMRS (International Hotel, Motel + Restaurant Show) and BDNY (Boutique Design Trade Fair) this year with 15 students, faculty, and staff from the Collins College of Hospitality Management at Cal Poly Pomona. Being a five-time attendee of IHMRS since 2009 and a professor who often shares hospitality trends and industrial updates, I paid special attention to new products and ideas that were different from those in the past. Guess what new products and ideas I found?

  • Fewer e-commerce sites, OTA sites, or mobile app developers attended IHMRS than before. 
  • TV mirrors are here. 
  • Green practices will stay. 
  • "Special" textiles will be used for a variety of purposes and facilities. 
  • Preserved vertical gardens help businesses keep the beauty of plants but require no maintenance.
  • +DrainWig is helpful in solving the clogging issues of drains.  
  • +Made In China --- there is a section just for Chinese manufacturers.
