In the spirit of the theme around The Brit List Awards 2023, ‘creativity’ was not only ‘unlocked’ last night at the awards ceremony, it was celebrated in style. From a punchy red carpet arrival experience to cabaret and clubbing – and everything in between – here are the official photographs that capture the spirit of the awards campaign…
Designer wheels aside, the event, true to form, was host to a crowd of creative makers and shakers in the hospitality industry as we celebrated the winners, as well as the teams and collaborations behind them. With more than 500 architects, hoteliers, designers, developers and brands from across the globe crossing that fabulous red carpet and gathering for the awards ceremony, it was truly an event that celebrated the hospitality community in all its multi-faceted and creative diversity.
On the night, The Brit List 2023 was handed out, which contains the profiles of the leading 75 interior designers, architects and hoteliers in Britain. Read the The Brit List 2023 below:
The theme for The Brit List Awards 2023, headline sponsored by Crosswater, has been ‘Creativity Unlocked’, focussing the spotlight on the energy that has characterised the design and hospitality sector over the course of the year.
Key to this has been a broadening of our understanding around creativity, as concepts of wellness and wellbeing have been placed firmly on the agenda, at all levels. If there is a single standout thread running through the design year, it does feel as if a deeper understanding of wellness has been developed, which has in turn become such an integral element to hotel design, its people and its places.
But back to last night. In between the audience being kept on a knife edge of anticipation with swords being swallowed, fire was handled and the stage was taken over by a drag opera singer, teams and individuals were toasted when the winners of the 12 categories were announced. From grand gestures, to bespoke and boutique, we’ve seen it all in this year’s campaign – well maybe not quite all, as the hotel development pipeline looks stronger then ever for the next few years.
