    The Brit List Awards 2020: Shortlist announced

    The shortlist for The Brit List Awards 2020 has been announced, with more than 120 individuals and projects selected across eight categories…

    Known as the industry’s most widespread search to identify the leading designers, architects, hoteliers and suppliers, The Brit List Awards 2020 has unveiled this year’s shortlist.

    The finalists, listed below, have been invited to attend The Brit List Awards’ annual award ceremony – taking place virtually on November 12. At the event, The Brit List 2020 (a publication that profiles the top 25 designers, architects and hoteliers) as well as the individual winners will be announced. In addition, Hotel Designs is hosting a ‘Winners’ Party’ for the industry on January 28, 2021, which will be aptly sheltered inside Minotti London’s Fitzrovia showroom.

    Now in its fourth year, The Brit List Awards is Hotel Designs’ the nationwide search to find the most influential designers, architects, hoteliers and suppliers operating in Britain. This year’s meticulous process began months ago when Hotel Designs opened up nominations and applications to its loyal readers.

    “Now more than ever, we should recognise and celebrate the leading individuals who are consistently and meaningfully at the forefront of British design, architecture and hospitality.” – Hamish Kilburn, editor, Hotel Designs.

    Since then, an independent panel of expert judges gathered to discuss and select this year’s individual award winners and also to confirm the 75 individuals who have made it into The Brit List 2020. “Now more than ever, we should recognise and celebrate the leading individuals who are consistently and meaningfully at the forefront of British design, architecture and hospitality,” said editor Hamish Kilburn. “Although, on record, 2020 has been one of the most challenging periods for the industry, I have faith that the individuals we have shortlisted, together, have the skills and experience to create meaningful solutions for hospitality and hotel design in the post-pandemic world.”

    Adding an extra layer to this year’s event will be the currently confirmed 2020 sponsors and partners. They are: Crosswater (Headline Partner), Hamilton Litestat (Event Partner), Duravit (Event Partner), Aqualisa (Award Partner), Hansgrohe (Award Partner), Schlüter Systems (Showcase Partner), British Institute of Interior Design (Industry Partner), HIX Event (Networking Partner).
