Adjacent to this year’s HX: The Hotel Experience (formerly the International Hotel, Motel + Restaurant Show) is the sixth annual Boutique Design New York (BDNY) trade fair and conference from November 8 to 9. HX and BDNY will both be held at the Javits Convention Center. More than 5,000 interior designers, architects, purchasing executives and hospitality owners/operators are expected to attend BDNY 2015. As with HX, BDNY will feature several “green” or sustainability-focused educational sessions. If you are attending BDNY next month, be sure to check them out. First, on November 8 from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. is “Innovations in Energy and Water.” The moderator for the session will be Lorraine Francis, Regional Director of Hospitality Interiors for Gensler.
