Sett, the leading European outdoor hospitality trade fair in Monpellier, France
Created in 1978, Sett is the trade fair for equipment and technical infrastructure in tourism. For its 42nd year, it will take place on 3-5 November at the Exhibition Center, Montpellier, France.
Initiated by the Languedoc-Roussillon Outdoor Hospitality Federation, Sett today brings together seven other regional partner federations and offers tourism specialists from all over the world a broad range of products and services.
With more than 650 exhibitors last year from the outdoor accommodation, wellness, leisure and green spaces sectors, the show covers 55,500 square metres in nine halls.
Over the years, this gathering has become an annual venue for all tourism professionals where they can exchange views and discuss the sector’s key challenges. It also offers a unique opportunity to find out more about the latest innovations and trends that will guide the investments necessary to equip and modernise visitor facilities year-on-year.
The three days of the fair will be highlighted by many special events, organised around:
• Innovation, with the Golden Sett awards to honour the best innovations in the sector
• Information, with a program of talks on topics including regulations, legal aspects, tax and health and safety concerns
• Conviviality, with numerous meetings among professionals
• The Ecosett – new this year, this mark highlights eco-friendly exhibitors online and at the show.
Sett’s team will provide every effort to ensure the best sanitary conditions including:
• Temperature taken at entry and socially distant queues
• Signage for social distancing and barriers
• Systematic and regular disinfection of spaces (toilets, doors, airlock entrances etc.)
• Provision of masks and hydroalcoholic gel
• Outdoor areas
• Adapted catering spaces
• Dematerialisation of badges, catalogues, floor plan etc.
