Miami Beach, Fla.- HD Boutique, a trade show for hospitality designers, architects, owners, operators, developers and specifiers, drew more than 4,000 attendees Sept. 11-12 in Miami Beach.
This year's event showcased new designs in fabrics and textiles, furniture, accessories, lighting, flooring, artwork, bath fixtures, window treatments and other hospitality-related products from more than 300 producers, artisans and craftsmen.
The attendees included a mix of designers, architects and hotel and restaurant owners, both domestic and international.
"We were thrilled that this year launched us into the ever-growing Latin American design , community, we saw industry leaders, designers and buyers representative of this demographic, and we received great insight as to where trends are heading into the new year," said Liz Sommerville, the show's director.
In 2013, HD Boutique will take on a new name, HD Americas, a strategic change that reflects the trendspotting growth taking place in North America, Central America, South America, the Caribbean and beyond. With its prime location in Miami, HD Americas will serve as a hub for designers, owners, architects and other allied professionals to be a part of the ever-growing hospitality design market in these regions.
"Those in the industry looking for thoughtful, innovative products in these regions simply do not have the resources locally," said David Ashen, dash design in Long Island City, N.Y., and part-time resident of Chile. "HD Americas will provide these creative types with the ability to discover new trends and will, more importantly, capitalize on the progressive mentality in the Americas."
