Hospitality Media Group (HMG) has announced the launch of Boutique Design Trade Fair (BD West) to be held at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego from April 4-5.
BD West follows in the successful path of sister tradeshow BDNY, now in its third sold-out year and developed by Michael Schneider, the creator of Hospitality MATCH and Boutique Design magazine.
“Drawing on design elements that galvanize the marketplace for an exciting industry event, BD West will serve the hospitality-design marketplace and attract interior designers, architects, purchasing professionals, hotel owners and operators and manufacturers who provide innovative products to the marketplace,” said Michelle Finn, president, HMG.
“The tradeshow will be peppered with creative spaces, including customized display areas that will provide manufacturers and marketers greater flexibility in their designs as well as provide them with interactive sessions on the show floor,” said Finn. “Additionally, build-outs by the winners of the show’s design competitions as well as gracious networking areas intended to engage the audience promise to make this tradeshow experience unique and beyond the grid.”
The tradeshow will offer CEU conference sessions prior to the tradeshow opening, featuring peer-based as well as content from outside our industry, giving the audience a fresh perspective on design, architecture and development. BD West will launch with 30,000 net square feet of stand and display area and is projected to attract approximately 1,500 attendees.
