Trade Show Bringing Hospitality Industry’s Heavy Hitters to Myrtle Beach

Each year, the biggest names in hospitality-industry supplies gather to showcase their wares to independent owners and operators of hotels, motels and restaurants from throughout the Southeast. At the 2017 event, more than 400 exhibitors gathered at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center to show off everything from furnishings and fixtures to laundry equipment, food & beverage equipment, cleaning supplies, and signage. For its 42nd annual gathering in 2018, the Hotel, Motel and Restaurant Supply Show of the Southeast has again chosen the Grand Strand as its winter trade show destination - and all the action will once again take place within walking distance of The Breakers Resort on the Myrtle Beach oceanfront.

Set for January 30–February 1, 2018, the 42nd Annual Hotel, Motel and Restaurant Supply Show of the Southeast is expected to draw more than 2,000 attendees and will feature exhibitor booths set up throughout the Myrtle Beach Convention Center’s 100,000-square-foot exhibit hall. The list of 2017 exhibitors featured suppliers offering solutions to every need imaginable in the hospitality industry, including bedding, floor covering, uniforms, fitness equipment, HVAC systems, window treatments, bar supplies - you name it. The businesses on hand included big names the likes of 7-Eleven, GE Appliances, General Mills, Samsung and Sharp, as well as hundreds of other smaller suppliers. If a hotel or restaurant needs it, it is likely to be on display at the 2018 event.

In addition to all the knowledge and equipment on hand, the show will also feature the 2018 Culinary Chefs Challenge - considered by many to be the Southeast’s most amazing culinary competition. Presented by the Myrtle Beach chapter of the American Culinary Federation, the contest will allow participating professional and aspiring chefs to showcase their cooking skills in a trio of contests: the 14th Annual Hot Food Competition, the 14th Annual Cold Food Competition and the 2nd Annual Student Competition. Attendees will get to catch all the action as the competitors face off in a Mystery Box Challenge for the Hot Food Competition, as well as a range of culinary categories for the Cold Food and Student competitions.
