I am not sure how it is already this time of year, but I am excited all the same (and a bit terrified of what needs to be done before we head to Las Vegas, May 4-6th). It is the show's 25th anniversary, and between the speakers and the products (and of course the networking), it is shaping up to be one of our best yet. We feature a sneak peek of all the show has to offer starting on page 231. To go along with HD Expo is the May issue that you have in your hands (or on your screen). Our largest of the year-a mere 340 pages-it is a celebration of not only the show but also our industry, chock-full of what we hope is a diverse and impressive group of people, projects, and products. There's Soho House's farm retreat in the English countryside; Richard Meier's first full hotel in South Korea; interviews with Chip Conley of Airbnb and Ace Hotel Group's Brad Wilson; and roundups on Austin and airport lounges (plus a special feature on LA), to name a few of the highlights of our annual labor of love. There will be even more photos and goodies from what we feature here online as obviously we can't fit everything in the issue, even with this number of pages-this industry is just too robust. One of those is a tribute to the late Zaha Hadid. Her extraordinary talent and tenacity always served as a source of inspiration for me, and it's even more heart-wrenching when one of the greats leaves us too soon. It's why it was fitting to feature her superyachts as the inaugural subject for our new Inspiration section. This page came as a result of feedback from the advisory board listed below, and each month we will showcase interesting work (both within hospitality and other disciplines) aimed to serve as a source of, you guessed it, inspiration. We will be celebrating even more creativity next month during our annual HD Awards at the new Cipriani 25 Broadway in New York. For the first time in our 12year history, we will announce the winners of each category (finalists can be found at during the not-to-miss evening. Like this issue, it will be another celebration of this industry's wide range of talent. But first, we look forward to seeing you in Vegas!
