    It’s in with the new…

    This month has been about discovery over on the editorial desk at Hotel Designs HQ. At the beginning of February we opened entries and nominations for our 30 Under 30 initiative, which was the start of our global search for the industry’s rising stars. Make no bones about it, this is Hotel Designs’ pledge to help and really support young designers who are proving themselves to be leaders in the making on the vast international hotel design scene.

    “With the aim to do more than just list 30 incredible names, Hotel Designs is also inviting all 40 shortlisted candidates to our Q1 networking event, Meet Up London.”

    Whittling down the hundreds of entries and nominations has allowed us to really unearth raw potential and realise that the future of our industry is in good and capable hands. As a 26-year-old design editor myself, I can relate to individuals in our field who deserve to be defined and judged not by their date of birth, but by the work they produce. The time has come to change the perception of young designers form being junior to being superior by showcasing to the world some of the spectacular projects that are being worked on by designers and architects 30 years old or younger.

    With the aim to do more than just list 30 incredible names, Hotel Designs is also inviting all 40 shortlisted candidates to our Q1 networking event, Meet Up London, which takes place on March 28 at Minotti London’s fabulous Fitzrovia showroom. There are still tickets available if you would like to join us in bridging the age gap between designers, hoteliers, architects and key-industry suppliers.

    If you are a designer, architect or hotelier, please purchase your tickets here
    If you are a supplier, please purchase your tickets here. 

    February is over almost as soon as it began, but what a month it has been! Marching on, we have some exciting brand news to reveal to you shortly…
