We're asking for 3 days of your time. Why would you agree?
Well, because it's probably the most effective 3 days you can have as a hospitality design professional. Here's why:
Quality time with 250 of the most active, experienced and
well-connected hospitality project people in the Asia Pacific region, be they Owners/Operators, Designers, Procurement Specialists or Manufacturers. When we say
we have the 'best' project people in one place we think we can back that up. Just look at the lists. And if business is all about
relationships and working with the 'right' people, HI Design ASIA brings those people together for you. Away from the office and all the usual daily
distractions to be in a very special bubble. You'll come out of that bubble with a little glint in your eye. You'll be inspired like you haven't been in
a long time. You'll know more of the 'right' people. Those you already know, you'll know better than you did before. You'll just know more of the right stuff!
We guarantee it. Not only will you be better connected, you will also be better informed and better equipped to do what you do better. Here's how:
Find the best
products and get to
know the people
Think you know all the best suppliers and the best products? Think again. 80 of the most innovative and capable Suppliers in the region attend HI Design ASIA. Limiting numbers means quality is guaranteed. It also means you can meet them all.
The manufacturers at HI Design are all hospitality project specialists, just like you. No distributors. Just well-informed regional decision makers who know their products and are ready to have a proper conversation with you. We know it's essential for you to touch and feel products and to meet the people behind them. HI Design ASIA gives you the opportunity to get to know these people properly so you know who you're potentially working with. Email and online research simply can't replace a handshake. No matter how much you think you know, we guarantee you'll find something new. You can get to know some of your current Suppliers better too.
In a business built on relationships, HI Design ASIA brings the key people together. Meeting the right Suppliers is only a part of it. The other Buyer Delegates bring a whole new opportunity. 25 Hotel group Owner/Operators will be there. All are represented at a senior regional level, and others by their nominated procurement specialists. 50 Hospitality Interior Design agencies will also attend. We have a dedicated Buyer Networking session on the first business day which only the Buyers are allowed to attend (no manufacturers). This benefits all corners of the 'Buyer's Triangle' - the Hotel Groups, the Procurement Specialists and the Interior Designers by creating opportunities to get to know potential or existing collaborators AND fellow professionals better. It's a very rare chance to mutually benefit from your collective experiences. Every year more Buyer Delegates tell us how useful and enjoyable this aspect of the event has proven to be.
Save time and money
We don't think life's all about saving time. Or money. But in business, getting the most done in the least time is a massive benefit. In fact, you'll be blown away by how much you can get done in 2 days and 3 evenings in this company. 80 top quality FF&E manufacturer principals from all over the world in one place. With 33 product categories covered, you'll find many of your product requirements under one roof. You'll also get to know the people behind them. Much, much better than trawling the product library and saves an absolute fortune on trade shows!
HI Design ASIA is your one-stop-shop for the best FF&E manufacturers in the business. Look at the attendee lists. Where else will you find such a great group in one place for a few days? The format means you're guaranteed the most productive time possible in this company. Your only cost is getting here. Everything else is covered.
Knowledge is Power. It helps you to do your job better and to make the right decisions.
HI Design ASIA should be considered an essential addition to the Personal Professional Development programme of any hotel design professional. Because on top of the business meetings and networking, it features a Seminar Programme that is meticulously put together to deliver timely knowledge and valuable insight from experts within the hospitality design industry. It begins with the regional Pipeline overview which sets the backdrop for the event. 3 further compelling, thought-provoking, inspiring and entertaining sessions then follow.
We bring the experts to you: we'll help you to understand and achieve a more Sustainable approach to your business, we'll tell you what the Operators want, what other Designers are up to and we'll give you a lesson in technology. It's a welcome chance to sit back, and soak it all in. Each of our guest speakers brings something new and unique. Yes, we attract some big names these days (Michael Bedner, Karim Rashid, Patrick Reardon et al) but our experts all have one thing in common: they're generous with what they've learned and we brief them to be prepared for any questions you may wish to throw at them. If you don't ask, you'll never know.
All sessions, including the full Pipeline Report are available as exclusive downloads ONLY to HI Design ASIA attendees after the event.
Escape the usual
distractions - get
It's impossible to achieve anything when you keep getting distracted. Let us organise everything so you can just get on with it.
We know that meetings in your office are often cut short, cancelled or curtailed in some other way so you don't achieve what you wanted to. We know this, not because we're spying on you, but because other Designers tell us so. It's frustrating. HI Design ASIA happens in a distraction-free environment. Just tell us who you want to meet and we'll do the rest. There will be more relevant, useful connections made over the course of the event than anyone can predict. It's focused time with people you want to meet on neutral ground. Anything can happen, and it usually does. That's what makes HI Design ASIA so special.
Inspiration is a wonderful tool. You can do so much with it. When were you last inspired? That long eh?
Inspiration comes in many forms. We can't say exactly what will inspire you at HI Design ASIA but something will. The elements are all there: the people, the products, the format and the 'vibe'. The rest is up to you, actually. Right now we're simply trying to inspire you to come. Then you'll know.
You will be better connected, better informed and better equipped to do what you do better. We guarantee it.
After experiencing HI Design ASIA for the first time, many Buyers experience symptoms similar to a form of addiction: they want to return as often as they can. And for very good reasons:
To keep up with new products and Supplier developments in as time-efficient a way as possible. 35-40% of the Suppliers are new each year. Our regular Buyers know we deliver an excellent spread of Suppliers every year so many come to use HD as their one-stop-shop for new Suppliers in the region. It's also the perfect way to catch up and consolidate with existing Suppliers and to review their latest product developments.
Our regular Buyer attendees tend to have a variety of projects 'on the books'. This means each year will see new projects at the specification stage and so HI Design ASIA is ideal, providing a fresh pool of products and solutions as and when required. It also helps you prepare the ground for future collaborations.
HI Design ASIA is of a size and form that's dynamic enough to reflect the hospitality design industry as it develops: New projects, people, products and a Seminar Programme that always provides a generous new helping of food for thought. Add this to an outstanding networking environment and you have one of the most time and cost-effective means of gathering new knowledge.
