The hotel is back. Great things will grow.
Taking place on 17th and 18th November at London’s Business Design Centre, Hotel Interiors Experience (HIX) will bring the hotel design community together for a true celebration of everything that makes hotels incredible. Returning bigger and better for 2022, with two days of networking, discussions, parties, installations and a curated exhibition of Europe’s leading brands, it’s free to attend, and the only place to find the entire hotel supply chain under one roof.
This year’s expanded edition features new spaces like Collection – a curated edit of 30 brands leading the way in European design including Moooi, Alamuir, Fritz Fryer, Muuto, Mater and Marset. Served by a dedicated pop up ‘mini bar’ and soundtrack, Collection is a focused boutique to complement the wider show floor, where brands like Gessi, Northern Lights, Ligne Roset, Parla, Zonca, Chelsom, Hansgrohe and more will highlight the latest collections and interior trends.
At the centre of the show floor, the Mush Room bar designed by WeWantMore will form the beating heart of HIX Social. Across two days of parties and networking, guest will have access to a late close Thursday party with DJ sets and complementary drinks; a series of HIX Drinx stand parties from Roman, Roca, and Villeroy & Boch; and Friday’s Gen & Tonic midweight mixer, where rising hotel design stars can expand their networks and meet the industry’s leading lights before discovering a series of talks sessions exploring the future of hotel design.
Upstairs, the Kohler-sponsored HIX Talks programme will discuss topics ranging from the power of narrative and the net-zero design movement to metaverse hotels and members clubs. Featuring a keynote from iconic British designer Nigel Coates alongside panel speakers representing Accor, Baranowitz + Kronenberg, Conran & Partners, A Studio, Edyn, Roar, The Other House, Wunderman Thompson and more, HIX Talks is your forward-thinking hotel intelligence resource.
Additional content includes a reception for the Accor Design Competition winners; the launch of the Kindling design collective to support the recovery of Ukrainian hospitality; and a Festival of Hospitality fireside chat with the sustainable futures agency behind this year’s ground-breaking Barbican exhibition ‘Our Time on Earth’.
Welcoming designers, operators, suppliers, investors developers, specifiers and project managers alike, HIX is Europe’s hotel design event, and it takes place in the heart of London’s design community.
