About The Event
The premier event for hospitality design and experience
Hospitality Design Fair, held at the world-class ICC Sydney on 23-24 March 2021, is the premier trade fair and conference for creative professionals who shape the hospitality interiors marketplace and create amazing spaces. As the only event in Australia focused exclusively on interior design and furniture for hotels, bars, restaurants and clubs, #HDF21 brings together designers, architects, owner/operators, purchasers, brand executives and manufacturers for two days of product discovery, inspiration, education and exceptional networking.
What’s on at Hospitality Design Fair:
DesignTalks are a series of 30-minute conversations with industry leaders and game changers who will share their insights, experiences, recent successes, challenges and opportunities. Exploring topics from the business of design and emerging design trends to changing consumer expectations and the importance of storytelling.
Amazing Spaces are curated “hubs” where you can experience a collection of design elements in a themed hospitality setting. Created by a leading hospitality designer in partnership with exhibiting companies, each space brings together a convergence of creatives ideas, perspectives, design talent and design products to create a unique guest experience.
Designers Choice Awards
Judged by a panel of hospitality designers, the Designers Choice Awards recognise the designers and manufacturers of the year’s most innovative new products for hospitality interiors. Keep an eye out for “Designers Choice @ HDF” signs on the exhibit floor designating winners/finalists.
Connect with colleagues, host meetings with suppliers or simply take time out from the exhibit floor at The Connections Lounge. Located in the heart of the trade fair floor, the lounge is the perfect environment for meet-ups and networking.
The design business is about connections and relationships. Hospitality Design Fair brings together the people designing, developing and furnishing the next wave of hospitality projects making it the best place to grow your network, strengthen existing relationships and build connections for future opportunities.
