The Interior Design & Architecture Summit (IDAS), which is free to attend for qualifying designers and architects, is Hotel Designs’ premium meet-the-buyer event.
The one-day event, which this year will take shelter at London Hilton Canary Wharf on June 30, is designed to dynamically bridge the gap between senior designers, architects and key-industry suppliers. The Summit includes pre-arranged face-to-face meetings, a networking lunch – and to round it all off, Hotel Designs has curated a captivating panel discussion programme. The three debates will run throughout the day, and will include leading industry figures to discuss topics such as sustainability, wellness and materials.
“When curating this year’s sessions and line-up of speakers, we identified these three particular topics, not just because of their relevance but also because of the pre-conceptions around them,” Editor Hamish Kilburn who will chair each conversation said. “Take sustainability, for example: the ultimate ‘buzzword’ of the modern design era. We want to go beyond championing products and schemes that use recycled materials and move into talking about what’s next; products, projects and new methods of working that intuitively help our industry to work towards a circular economy.
“The speakers we have invited for all of our sessions, I believe, are at the forefront of change – and have been called upon to impart their knowledge and latest research. Above all, though, we are encouraging all designers and architects to come to together to challenge conventional approaches to design and architecture.”
This year’s confirmed sessions and speakers are:
