Michelle Finn, President of Hospitality Media Group, moderated last month’s NEWH Owners’ Insight panel held during the day at the 14th Annual HOSPY Awards. This panel focused on the future of Las Vegas hospitality and included Kara Sifferman, Western Region Project Director, Virgin Hotels, Sean Tanner, Director of Design, Boyd Gaming, Glenn Nowak, Associate Professor Architecture & Design, UNLV School of Architecture, Corey Nyman, Director of Operations, The Nyman Group, and Kevin Ball, Vice President, Golden Gaming Corporation. They discussed topics such as clinical tourism, walkable streets, the fantastic design community in LV, and how Vegas bounced back from the 2008 market crash. These panelists believe that in the future, Freemont and Downtown will come together and the new focus for food & beverage will be food halls.
This year’s HOSPY Awards celebrated Kimberly Daoust, Principal at Tandem, and other individuals and firms for extraordinary achievement in architecture, design, and development in the hospitality industry. The event raises funds for student scholarships in architecture, interior design, construction, hotel management, gaming management and culinary arts.
