In this forum, professionals from the fields of design and interior architecture, as well as entrepreneurs from all over the world (particularly representatives from the hotel and commercial sectors) had the opportunity to showcase and set out their work and their visions of the sector, as well as to discuss and address future business perspectives.

Participating in the Forum were leading hotel companies at the national level, along with representatives from hotel chains in Mexico, and Central and South America, with key roles in the international tourism market, and who were specially invited for the occasion by CODIC and the Ibero-American Council of Interior Designers (CIDI).

"A point of debate for jointly addressing future business perspectives."

Also present was the ONCE Foundation, through its hotel group ILUNION, which, during the event, outlined accessibility needs for the visually impaired in hotel establishments, and how installations can be adapted to make them more practicable for these individuals. 

This activity was aimed at companies interested in learning first-hand about the opportunities offered by the Contract sector.
