Boutique 18 Call for Nominations

SEARCH FOR CLASS OF 2018 OPEN UNTIL SEPT. 29

B18_blogpage

Boutique Design is seeking to recognize the rising design stars who are creating today’s (and tomorrow’s) most buzzed-about hospitality venues. If you know someone who is changing the game for hotel, restaurant, spa, cruise ship, pop-up, hostel and casino design, nominate them for the 2018 Boutique 18.

Eligible interior designers must be working in the hospitality industry and either employed by an interior design, purchasing, architectural firm or hotel company/ownership group. Candidates will be evaluated on their accomplishments in the following categories: impact on recent projects; influence on and contributions to the industry; business design management and design process contributions to their company or firm; and outstanding individual qualities.

The 13th annual class of Boutique 18 honorees will be chosen based on those criteria by the Boutique Design editorial team; the number of nominations an individual receives has no bearing on the selection process.

The 2018 Boutique 18 honorees will be revealed at this fall’s Boutique Design New York (BDNY), Nov. 12-13, and then celebrated at an induction ceremony at next spring’s BDwest in Los Angeles, April 4-5.

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: SEPTEMBER 29, 2017
