Hundreds of designers, architects, hoteliers, developers and suppliers tuned in today to watch the awards ceremony that crowned the winners of The Brit List Awards 2020…
Hotel Designs’ nationwide search to find the top designers, architects, hoteliers and suppliers operating in Britain came to a head yesterday as the winners of The Brit List Awards 2020 were officially announced.
Adhering to social distancing measures and the latest government guidelines, this year’s awards were filmed from inside Minotti London’s Fitzrovia showroom, which will host The Brit List Winners’ Party/MEET UP London on April 29, 2021.
“If anything, the pandemic has made our nationwide search that much more meaningful.” – Hamish Kilburn, editor of Hotel Designs and host of The Brit List Awards 2020.
Editor Hamish Kilburn, who took the microphone as host for the third consecutive year, welcomed the virtual audience with a nod to the industry’s resilience during the pandemic. “Covid-19 may have changed a lot of things, but it was never going to impact the quality of our nationwide search to find the most influential designers, architects and hoteliers operating in Britain,” said Kilburn. “If anything, the pandemic has made our nationwide search that much more meaningful.
“Year-on-year, we pour our hearts into our nationwide search, and I am really proud that our awards has become a major event in the design, architecture and hospitality calendar.”
Ahead of the virtual event, Hotel Designs asked this year’s partners and judges what The Brit List Awards meant to them:
This year’s handpicked judging panel, who joined Kilburn in a brief panel discussion during the awards ceremony, were carefully selected to include international experts in design, architecture and hotel development.
The afternoon’s celebrations were divided into two sections. First came the formal unveiling of The Brit List 2020, the official publication, produced by Hotel Designs, that whittles down the shortlist to reference this year’s top 75 designers, architects and hoteliers who have proven themselves to be the industry’s most creative and innovative individuals operating in Britain today.
The event then continued, with Kilburn inviting Parters of The Brit List Awards 2020 to announce this year’s individual award winners.
