As Hotel Designs strides into 2024 with a growing team and an exciting editorial line-up, we would like to share with our readers and partners the news that Sophie Harper will be stepping into the role of editor during the course of this month.

Harper’s experience and knowledge have placed her in high demand as a consultant and speaker for a number of events. She currently sits on the advisory board for the Sustainable Design Summit and Hotel & Resort Design South, and regularly speaks at international events and exhibitions.

As well as taking every opportunity to discuss all aspects of hotel design with leading experts across the industry, she is passionate about shedding light on topics concerning ESG, technology and inclusivity, while actively shining the spotlight on new and upcoming design talent.

Commenting on her new appointment as Editor of Hotel Designs, Harper said: “I am excited to be joining such an accomplished team of pioneers and can’t wait to get stuck into my new role to help bring our design and hospitality communities together. I have big boots to fill (and handstands to practice!) and would like to thank Hamish for paving the way for me and the rest of the team to build on what he has achieved for the brand so far.”

Welcoming her on-board, Hotel Designs Publisher, Katy Phillips stated: “We are delighted to be welcoming Sophie Harper to the team. Her experience and knowledge of the hospitality sector is vast and we can’t wait to see what she brings to the role. Hotel Designs has big plans for 2024 which include the appointment of a Deputy Editor to work alongside Sophie and our Content Writer Pauline Brettell. More news on that shortly, but for now we’re looking forward to immersing Sophie in to our ever-evolving brand.”
