Hospitality Design - October 2014 - (Page 32)

from the show director a new direction I have some exciting news to share with all of you. Our parent company, Emerald Expositions, is the proud owner of several design-focused brands beyond Hospitality Design (HD) magazine and the HD Group shows and events. In fact, we have the top tradeshows and publications in retail, kitchen and bath, and commercial design. For that reason, we've decided to come together to transform HD Americas into Design Americas with all of our design counterparts. For the first time, architects, designers, and developers will find complete product, materials, and service resources across the spectrum of interior design sectors including hotel, restaurant, resort, cruise ship, contract, residential, and retail. Design Americas, which will be held next September 16-17th at the Miami Beach Convention Center, will not only be your one-stop show to see innovative products in all these arenas, but it will also feature conference sessions geared toward each of the individual tracks. In addition, the keynote speaker will be a well-known architecture and design professional that will appeal to attendees from each sector. The industry response to the announcement of our new direction has been amazing. I am always so grateful to be surrounded by such supportive, creative, and intelligent people that truly love working within hospitality and design, and I enjoy hearing your feedback and suggestions. To answer a few questions: The show floor will be divided out so each segment will have its own pavilion; registration will not be segmented-one badge gives you entrance to all areas of the show, including all conference sessions (if you purchase a full conference badge); and the show will remain a two-day event-with the option to expand as we grow. The market strength of our brands combined is certainly impressive-we expect to bring together approximately 350 exhibitors and 7,000 qualified attendees. If you have any questions about Design Americas, or anything else HD-related, please don't hesitate to contact me. Until next month.
