Hospitality Design Summit (HD Summit) is the industry’s only conference focused on ideas outside hospitality. Because everyone needs fresh thinking and new sources of inspiration, the invitation-only event, held in a “thought camp” environment, is designed to sharpen the leadership skills executives need daily—and to provide the big ideas they need to stay ahead of the competition. HD Summit caters to top-level executives within the hospitality design sector and provides sponsors with a unique opportunity to connect with their A-list customers. A sponsorship is an investment in relationship building at the highest levels of the industry. Full-frequency advertisers earn a complimentary sponsorship. For more information, click here.
HD NextGen Forum launched in 2013 as a hybrid event that combines regular conference programing and Ted-like speakers for the industry’s rising stars and emerging firms who are already making their mark in hospitality. This invitation-only conference blends education, inspiration, business, and socializing for the next generation of hospitality design leaders. For more information, click here.
Each year, the editors of HD magazine tap the industry’s developing talent—those young enough to be considered visionary, but tested enough to be proven accomplished—for the annual HD Wave of the Future awards. Honorees are featured in the June issue, and feted in person at HD NextGen Forum during a panel discussion. Category-exclusive sponsorships are available. For more information, click here.

Attracting more than 540 entries for projects and 300 for products, the Hospitality Design Awards (HD Awards) showcase the industry’s best projects—from luxury hotels to restaurants and spas—and projects, and honor the creative teams behind them. The jury-selected winners take center stage in New York in June to receive their awards—representing a stunning array of industry talent. Align your brand in sponsorship with HD as we applaud the year’s most incredible people, products, and projects. Winners and finalists are also showcased in the June issue of HD magazine.
HD magazine honors those who have made a significant contribution to the field of hospitality design at its 28th Platinum Circle Awards Gala, a special evening of cocktails, dinner, and an awards ceremony in November 2016 in New York.

The Hospitality Design Group (HD Group) is an active and integral part of the hospitality design marketplace. As part of our purpose, we help give back to the industry through programs such as ISHP’s Hollywood Heart summer camp for children affected by HIV/AIDS, the Manfred Steinfeld Humanitarian Award, NEWH scholarships, Good 360, and gifts in kind. HD team members are active members and participants of leading industry associations such as NEWH, ISHP, and IIDA; and speakers and attendees at industry events such as the Lodging Conference, NYU Investment Conference, American Lodging Investment Summit, HD events, and more. This involvement has helped us earn our place as the definitive resource for the hospitality and design communities, and made the HD brand the most trusted authority in hospitality.
