HMG launches new trade fair
Hospitality Media Group (HMG), the newly formed LLC of ST Media Group, announces the launch of Boutique Design Trade Fair (BDwest), April 4-5, 2013, at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, Calif.
BDwest follows in the successful path of sister trade fair BDNY, now in its third sold-out year, developed by Michael Schneider, also the creator of Hospitality Match and Boutique Design magazine.
BDwest responds to the growing demand for a BD trade fair on the west coast. Drawing on design elements that galvanize the marketplace for an exciting industry event, BDwest 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 of HMG.
The trade fair 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 trade fair floor. Additionally, build-outs by the winners of the fair's design competitions, as well as gracious networking areas intended to engage the audience, promise to make this trade fair experience unique and beyond the grid.
CEU conference sessions will be offered prior to the trade fair opening, featuring peer-based sessions, as well as content from outside our industry, giving the audience a fresh perspective on design, architecture and development.
BDwest will launch with 30,000 net square feet of stand and display area and is projected to attract approximately 1,500 attendees, added Finn.
