CONFERENCE ROUNDUP

HD Expo

Photography by PWP Studio
This year's HD Expo in May brought wellness and sustainability to
the forefront with the introduction of a Wellness Pavilion on the
show floor at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.
Thousands of attendees heard from industry experts and startups
alike about the influential $4.2 trillion industry-from new trends and
innovative sustainable materials meeting the demands of healthminded consumers to how designers and operators are introducing
an all-encompassing level of immersive design.
Sydell Group founder and CEO Andrew Zobler delivered the
keynote address on the second day of the expo, where he discussed
the future of lifestyle hotels while highlighting the evolution of the
company's top brands, including the recently opened NoMad Las
Vegas. He was just one highlight of the more than 100 speakers
at this year's show, also tackling the meaning of lifestyle today
and other such important topics as new brands to know, trends
in restaurant design, the evolution of experiential travel, and
development updates.

The Box Design Challenge continued this year with 11 firms
competing to design and create the next best in lifestyle
guestrooms. Hospitality Design magazine once again partnered with
Hilton to host this exciting competition onsite, eventually naming
Urban Robot the winner after a grueling 24-hour design period. The
winning design-an indoor-outdoor abode decided upon by Bobby
Berk, star of Queer Eye; Anthony Melchiorri, Ageo Hospitality and
former star of Hotel Impossible; Larry Traxler, Hilton; and Daniel
Wade, Plaza LV-will be built out and revealed at HD Expo 2020.
NEWH had a large presence at the show this year as usual, with
various Green Voice Conversations happening in the Wellness
Pavilion, honoring numerous scholarship recipients-including
the Durkan dscvr student design competition, the NEWH Product
Design Competition (with winning design showcased at the
Symmons booth), and the Harvey Nudelman Scholarship Awards.
Save the date for next year's HD Expo, May 5-7, 2020 at Mandalay
Bay. More info at hdexpo.com.
