Winners of The Brit List Awards 2020 unveiled

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.

Save the date: The Brit List Winners’ Party/MEET UP London takes place on April 29

“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.

Meet Up North confirms Architextural as Event Partner

Leading surface brand Architextural has become an Event Partner for Meet Up North, which takes place on July 1 at Manchester’s Hotel Gotham… 

Hotel Designs has announced that Architextural has become an Event Partner for its premium northern networking event, Meet Up North. The event, which takes place at Hotel Gotham’s rooftop bar, Club Bras, in Manchester will further bridge together designers, architects, hoteliers and suppliers carrying the light theme of ‘Creativity Outside the Capital’.

The highly anticipated event will include an insightful talk and presentation by Tom Lindblom, Principal and Hospitality Leader at Gensler (London), which will be entitled Hospitality is way more than hotels.’

“Architextural is delighted to support Meet Up North as an event partner as we value opportunities like these to authentically meet face-to-face with designers, hoteliers and architects,” said Lindsay Appleton, marketing manager at Architextural. “We are dedicated in transforming interior design by refurb with film. Wrapping existing fixtures, fittings and surfaces rather than send to landfill is a great concept that we are excited to present at Hotel Gotham’s rooftop bar, Club Brass, as the perfect venue for us to showcase our latest self-adhesive faux finishes.”

The hand-chosen venue for the event, which in a few years will become the older and wiser sibling of the brand’s latest hotel that is on boards, The Brooklyn, has been an epicentre of the city’s action since it opened in 2015. The general manager of the hotel and brand, Mario Ovsenjak, and the owner, Robin Sheppard, were both listed in The Brit List 2018 as being among the top hoteliers in the country. Located on the rooftop, Club Brass will transform on July 1 from a private members’ bar  into a premium networking evening for designers, hoteliers, architects and suppliers alike – and here’s how you can get your hands on a ticket.

Designer, architect and hotelier tickets: £20 + VAT
