“Following the success of last year’s conference and trade fair, we are thrilled to again introduce exceptional content—specifically talks with today’s leaders and up-and-comers and signature Designed Spaces,” said Keisha Byrd, brand leader, BDNY. “As the hospitality industry, particularly boutique and lifestyle hospitality, continues to thrive, it is critical that we continue to provide a platform that celebrates the products, projects and personalities that allow our industry to stand out. Our goal for BDNY is to continue to be a source of inspiration, strategy, networking and immersive experiences.” 

Designed Spaces

A major attraction at BDNY each year is the unveiling of its four signature Designed Spaces. These unique concepts allow attendees to experience the latest in hospitality interiors in the context of sophisticated lounges, cafés and other gathering spaces throughout the exhibit floor. Each space is created by a leading hospitality design team using products from multiple BDNY exhibitors/sponsors with stunning results.
