BDNY delivers on both the practical and experiential aspects of hospitality design, with unique gathering spaces, design challenges and myriad networking events on the exhibit floor.
See the latest FF&E innovations in the context of uber-inspiring Designed Spaces—bars, cafes, lounges and other “hospitality hubs” for BDNY attendees—each created by a leading hospitality design firm using exhibitor/sponsor products. Designed Spaces are your destination for Interactive educational sessions as well as face time with manufacturers and industry colleagues.

Look for “Best of BDNY” signs on the exhibit floor designating winners/finalists of this juried competition recognizing the designers and manufacturers of the year’s most innovative new products for hospitality interiors.
