Wellness in hotels was once inextricably linked to impressive Spa Facilities, an idea however that has changed significantly in recent years. Wellness now refers to the guest’s overall experience, from the feeling of the stay in the room to the quality of the food at the hotel, as well as the overall experience offered by the hotel management, with services and activities both inside and outside the accommodation. This means that wellness tourism is now addressed to a wider range of hotels - regardless of their size, whereas the wellness experience has a more far-reaching application scope.
The 100% Hotel Show is attempting an alternative approach to this particular market, introducing the wellness trend with a series of select exhibitors and activities, which will offer information, ideas, and inspiration to the attending hotel owners.
More particularly, these will include:
- Unique exhibitors, with solutions that reinforce the Wellness identity of the hotels.
- Specialized Workshops about how hotels of all types can shape their wellness profile.
- Innovative activities by Holmes Place, the leading wellness centers, and the team of the Hotelier Academy.

Unique exhibitors that reinforce the Wellness identity of the hotels
Proposals by exhibitors regarding the wellness experience to be presented at the special Wellness & Housekeeping section of the show, are grouped into two separate sections: One pertaining to Design and one dedicated to Solutions that reinforce the overall experience. In this area, the participation of the world-famous company Sun of A Beach stands out, giving a new dimension to the wellness feeling of the accommodations through proposals on how to implement beach & pool kits in rooms, while giving, at the same time, a more special flair to hotel housekeeping. The wellbeing experience could not be complete without the special amenities and SPA products, which Olive Tree Spa Athens, an acclaimed company in this sector, has undertaken to present while also offering advice for the better organization of the spa facilities. Finally, a special approach on how to create the wellness feeling will be presented by the company Scent PLus which will offer proposals on ambient scenting that create feelings of emotional stimulation and relaxation, contributing to the general experience.
Specialized Workshops on how hotels of all types can form their own wellness profile.
Wellness could not be absent from the Workshops of the 100% Hotel Show, which this year will be also welcoming internationally distinguished speakers. Danish Designer Johanes Torpe will present a special approach to wellness at the workshop on hotel concepts, where he will present as a case study his recent project Red Mountain Resort, which is a model of the wellness experience in Iceland. On the same day, Destsetters, with a special Hotel Wellness Workshop, have invited experts of the sector to offer their advice on the implementation of wellness in the hotel’s gastronomy and in the general brand identity, whereas with the special participation of the René Pier ideas about the design of hotel spas will be presented. Finally, Archisearch.gr will offer an introduction to the concept of wellness, with their Sense Architecture Workshop, where the logic behind creating an “atmosphere” in modern hotels will be presented.
