Creative forces whose projects have shaken up the status quo drill down with strategies for helping clients understand a cutting edge vision and for finding solutions to transform untried concepts into fabulous yet functional hospitality spaces.

Moderator: Mary Scoviak, Executive Editor, Boutique Design
Speakers: Christoph Korner, Founding Member, GRAFT; Erla Dögg Ingjalsdóttir, Principal, Minarc; Dezirae Janowicz, Director of Operations, Tandem; Tryggvi Thorsteinsson, Principal, Minarc; Ilan Waisbrod, President, Studio GAIA

BDwest made its debut in April 2013, following the successful launch and subsequent growth of sister show Boutique Design New York (BDNY).
Presented by Boutique Design magazine, both shows were created to serve a growing demand for experiential design and a more specialized and personalized trade fair experience in hospitality—one that inspires, surprises and enlightens. And like its New York counterpart, BDwest delivered, garnering accolades from both attendees and trade fair exhibitors in year one.
