There is no doubt that the main entrance of the 100% Hotel Show that recently took place in Athens was one of the exhibition’s most impressive features. Visitors were under the impression that they were entering an actual hotel and not an exhibition.
Press here to see the exhibition’s main entrance entitled “Into the Light Hotel.”
Following is an introduction of the company responsible for the innovative project and a number of the companies that provided the materials, products and services and contributed to its success. This was a project that visitors were still talking about even days after the exhibition wrapped up.
