Hotel Megatrends is a fully-built 445 square meter facility that will be developed in Hall 1 of the country’s largest exhibition center, which will present the latest trends in technology, interior design, architecture, building, design and sustainability. A specialized team of architects, designers, technology and lighting consultants, wellness consultants, manufacturers and sponsor companies will work together to implement this MEGA production.

Hotel Megatrends will be developed on four main axes and aims to create a point of innovation, education and inspiration for visitors to the exhibition.

These four axes are:

  • TECH: New practices and innovations in technology related to the management and operation of hotel businesses.
  • DESIGN: The dominant tendencies in interior and exterior decoration, as well as implemented design proposals by Greek industrial designers.
  • GREEN: Use and presentation of “green” materials, products and practices, but also natural resource management systems (water/sun/air), technological solutions that lead to resource savings.
  • LOCAL: Connecting to the local community (creating spaces for locals, connecting to the local community through social media and special apps, using products produced by local companies).
