NEWH - Summer 2014 - 16

Conference Roundup

BDwest
Boutique Design West (BDwest) returned
to San Diego in March with double-digit
percentage growth in both exhibitors
and attendees from the show's launch in
2013. Some 1,200 attendees visited 185
exhibiting manufacturers in the San Diego
Convention Center's glass-enclosed
Sails Pavilion.
From more than a dozen educational
sessions offered, one of the most popular
in the conference lineup was "What's Hot:
Everything You Need to Know to Succeed
in 2014," moderated by Hotel News Now/
STR Global's Jeff Higley.
Popular off-site events included the
NEWH Orange & San Diego Regional
Groups' Hospitality Fashion Challenge
at Fluxx nightclub, sponsored by Fabric
Innovations, Restoration Hardware,
Sapphire Chandelier, and Valley Forge
Fabrics. Twelve design teams entered
this year's fashion challenge, crafting
couture fashions from scrap materials,
tile samples, and other reusable design
elements donated by exhibitors. The
Gensler team took top honors and a
$3,000 cash prize.
Two scholarship awards were
presented at the NEWH Icon of Industry
and Scholarship Awards Breakfast/Power
Players: Women Leaders in Hospitality
Panel Discussion. Receiving the NEWH FR-

One (Fabricut) Scholarship was Melanie
Murata from Florida State University; the
ICON Honorable Mention recipient was
Alexandra Kern from Savannah College of
Art and Design.
On the exhibit floor, attendees were
invited to relax and recharge in three
designed spaces created by leading
hospitality firms: the Pub at BDwest,
designed by Stonehill & Taylor; Luxury
Lounge, designed by Wilson Associates;
and Shades Bar by Design Poole.
BDwest returns next year, April 8-9th.

HI Connect
In April, HI Connect 2014 proved to
be an incredible success, attracting
key hospitality industry players who
showed up in unprecedented numbers
to experience more than 100,000 square
feet of fully built vignettes as well as a rich
tapestry of industry educational panels.
While most events focus on a single
discipline such as design or development,

HI Connect successfully bridges that
seemingly unpassable chasm uniting all
elements of the hotel industry into a cohesive
event experience. HI Connect is the only
tradeshow that engages professionals by
cultivating interaction and relationships
in a way hospitality professionals would
appreciate because of how vignettes,
culinary experiences, and other elements
connect people in meaningful
relationship building activities.
Save the date: HI Connect
2015, March 25-27th.

year's HI Connect Design.
