  • NEW ADDRESS! THE TOWNHOUSE 354 West 11th Street New York (map)

To coincide with the BDNY hotel & hospitality trade fair, Edelkoort Inc. presents new architecture and lifestyle trends for those working in hotels, travel, well-being & service

3 inspiring speakers will feature in this unique trend event! 

Architects and hotel designers will embrace guests in environments that envelop them and continuously reflect their needs. As clients become increasingly sophisticated, travelers will develop new notions about luxury, comfort, wellness and personalised service – a humanisation of the independent hotel industry will therefore be needed, one in which the customer comes first. Set in nature, highly inspiring architectural archetypes will explore the design, materials and ideas that will most captivate global consumers in the years to come.


presented by Philip Fimmano, Director, Edelkoort Inc.
