At the International Hotel/Motel & Restaurant Show, exhibitors reported record sales leads, a surge in quality buyers and an overall enhanced energy on the show floor. The 91st edition featured 1,250 exhibitors and attracted more than 35,600 attendees, November 11-14, 2006, at New York City’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. Hospitality industry professionals from around the world experienced several market enhancements, including 275 new exhibitors, an enhanced show look, the futuristic Guestroom 2010 and new educational opportunities.

“The response to the 2006 IH/M&RS has been extremely positive from both attendees and exhibitors,” said Christian Falkenberg, show manager. “This Show continues to gain recognition as a ‘must attend’ event for those seeking new products and resources on both the lodging and restaurant sides of the industry. The diversity of exhibitors – from luxury bedding and flat panel televisions, to dinnerware and buffet displays – makes this Show stand out from the rest.”

The Show also featured the Culinary Resource Center, Hospitality Leadership Forum and more than 40 educational seminars featuring key industry leaders. The Culinary Resource Center attracted hundreds of participants for a series of live cooking demonstrations by top chefs, as well as a showcase of more than 300 static “food as art” displays. Seminars of interest to both lodging and culinary professionals were offered, with topics ranging from hospitality design and immigration issues, to healthcare foodservice and success as a restaurateur.

Recognizing the most innovative new products at the Show, editors from leading trade publications judged nearly 150 entries for the 11th annual Editors’ Choice Awards competition. Receiving the honors were LC Premiums (luxury), Minibar Systems (Best of Show and technology), Pacific Coast Feather Company (décor), Parkside Coffee (flavors), Rubbermaid Commercial Products (essentials) and Structural Concepts (restaurant).

Additionally, Interior Design and HOTELS magazines once again recognized leaders in hospitality design at the annual Gold Key Awards Breakfast. Awards were presented to eight design firms from around the world for creativity and innovation. Highlighting the ceremony was the presentation of the “Designer of the Year” distinction to David Rockwell of the Rockwell Group.
