Preview What To Expect From Boutique Design New York 2017 – Now in its eighth year, Boutique Design New York(BDNY) is the leading trade fair and conference for the hospitality design industry, serving the eastern United States, Canada and Europe. Presented annually by Boutique Design at NYC’s Javits Center, BDNY brings interior designers, architects, purchasing agents and hospitality owners/developers together with manufacturers and marketers of high-caliber design elements for hospitality interior design projects. Interior Design Shop is thrilled to share with you a brief preview of what you can expect from this year’s edition of BDNY.
For two high-energy days each November, it’s the creative nexus of hospitality design — a trade fair and conference with boutique DNA and a focus on innovation, culminating with our industry’s most prestigious awards presentation, the Gold Key Awards Gala. All taking place in the cultural capital of the Americas, a perennial hotbed of development activity and design inspiration.
Ranked among the fastest-growing trade fairs in the U.S. for the past three years, BDNY will expand again in 2017, to 125,000 nsf of exhibit space. More than 600 customized displays will offer a gallery of inventive furnishings, lighting, fabrics, wallcoverings, flooring, carpeting, bath and spa, accessories, artwork and more—exceptional products that create the wow in hotels, restaurants, spas, clubs and cruise ships around the world.
It’s an elevated trade fair experience that includes an extensive conference program with CEU sessions, hands-on demos and workshops; unique social events held at some of Manhattan’s most exciting venues; and an atmosphere conducive to learning, networking and growing your business.
BDNY is produced by Hospitality Media Group LLC (HMG). HMG is a privately held company serving the global hospitality and related industries specializing in trade fair, conference and event management and development.
BDNY delivers on both the practical and experiential aspects of hospitality design, with unique gathering spaces, design challenges and myriad networking events on the exhibit floor.
