Introduced in 2010 as a more personalized, more productive trade fair experience for hospitality designers, Boutique Design New York (BDNY) has fast become one of the largest and buzziest most important events on the industry calendar.
Held each November alongside HX: The Hotel Experience at New York’s Javits Center, the BDNY trade fair and conference has charted double-digit growth each year since its inception. For 2015, attendance grew by 16 percent, landing BDNY on Trade Show Executive (TSE) magazine’s annual 50 Fastest-Growing Shows list for the third consecutive year.
The draw? BDNY’s elevated atmosphere, focused product selection, extensive conference program and not-so-hurried pace—an environment conducive to meaningful, fruitful conversations with manufacturers, industry visionaries and peers. All taking place in the cultural capital of the Americas, and culminating with our industry’s most prestigious awards gala.
