Apr 1 deadline for int’l hospitality contest entry
The fourth annual Radical Innovation in Hospitality competition has set April 1, 2010 as its deadline to accept all entries.
Co-founded by The John Hardy Group and Hospitality Design magazine, the Radical Innovation in Hospitality competition recognises ingenuity in built or unbuilt hospitality concepts with past winners including Pixel Hotel — a collection of six suites throughout Linz, Austria repurposing the city’s signature industrial spaces and one-of-a-kind places, including a floating tugboat; The Rig Hotel — a conceptual Gulf of Mexico Oil Rig Platform Resort Spa & Aquatic Adventure project; and Poseidon Undersea Resorts — the world’s first luxury undersea eco-resort in Fiji.
Entries are welcome from individual designers, design teams, brands, and design students across the globe and will be judged by a jury of top hospitality development experts, investors, and industry insiders. The top two most radically innovative entries will be announced in mid-April 2010 and finalists will be invited to attend HD Expo in Las Vegas, complete with airfare and accommodations.
Traditionally held during HD Boutique in Miami Beach, this interactive design competition will now take place during the 2010 Hospitality Design Exposition & Conference (HD Expo) at the Sands Expo and Convention Center, where the world’s most influential hospitality design manufacturers and project teams for international hotels and restaurants converge.
On May 19, 2010, the finalists will describe their concepts in-depth and explore project merits with the jury before opening up the final vote to attendees, who will cast their votes in real-time to determine the US $10,000 grand-prize winner.
