HX360° Lobby & Bar Innovation Zone
First impressions matter in hospitality. So no area is more critical than the Lobby & Bar. New at HX this year is the HX360° Innovation Zone for Lobby & Bar.
This will be an experience you won’t want to miss. The VR Innovation Zone, brought to you by EFX, will have you exploring multiple variations, virtually, of what Lobby & Bar areas can be.
Our VR showcase features the finalists from the Gold Key Awards in the Lobby category. (The Gold Key Award for Excellence in Hospitality Design is considered the best in class competition for the industry.) It allows you to immerse yourself into an experience of these top designs, trends, products, and services. This zone is filled with idea sparking concepts that will inspire innovations in your hotel.
Hx: Lobby & Bar
When you put the goggles down, relax at the Innovation Zone Lobby Bar merchandised by HX exhibitor Vie Avenue. Enjoy coffee and tea each morning, and cocktails in the afternoon, while mingling with other hospitality pros.
Our special GM Lounge is dedicated to general managers and filled with networking opportunities, and small-talk previews with speakers from our HX stages. Uber-comfortable lounge seating gives you a chance to sit down, plug in and charge up! It’s a great time to learn more about how VR can help you sell or improve your hotel, or hear our tech experts lead a session on tips and tricks with smart phones.
