Trip Report: IHMRS Show In NYC

Yesterday we attended the International Hotel Motel & Restaurant Show (IHMRS) and Boutique Design New York (BDNY) at the Jacob Javits Center in NYC.    The IHMRS is considered the international showcase for the hospitality industry.  The Javits Center was set up with 700 exhibitors and 30,000 attendees each year.

It was the perfect day for the event and for walk around NYC.  We left Manasquan after a nice sunrise walk around 8:30 to get to the show by 10:30.  We took the ferry from Weehawken and walked over to the show.  

Once at the show we met with several of our current suppliers and met many prospective new suppliers.  Here are a few vendors we met with: Bed Bath & Beyond, T-Y Group, Frette, Lather, Tivoli, Marietta.

Following the show we visited the offices of Glamour Magazine and enjoyed a great lunch before returning back to the beach.

We strongly believe staying "in the know" with hotel innovation is important to providing vacationers with these amenities.  We look forward to incorporating some new rental items for 2012 following attending this event.
