DESTINATIONS OF THE FUTURE: CREATING A NEW LANGUAGE FOR HOTEL DESIGN
7 OCTOBER 2020

NEW WEBINAR COMING SOON: Taking place ONLINE on Wednesday 7th October 2020 at 2pm, the next episode of INDEX Design Talks Online brings highly respected figures in the world of hotel design together to share their insights on how this complex, constantly evolving and now acutely disrupted form of environment may require new thinking and solutions over the mid- to long-term.

The panel will be discussing their perspectives on unfolding market dynamics, opportunity and competition; how design solutions will be reconceived in light of new spatial / hygiene considerations; whether the trend towards communal spaces is going to be a thing of the past and how design will maintain and enhance traditional environmental cues of good hospitality.

COVID-19 ALL SECURE

At dmg events, a commitment to delivering exceptional live in-person events that support economic growth and recovery will be reinforced by All Secure, a four-point framework designed to protect, exhibitors, visitors, delegates and contractors. This programme of enhanced measures will ensure the health and wellbeing of participants is prioritized.

Produced in collaboration with leading industry associations, the dmg events All Secure framework provides a detailed set of enhanced health and safety measures that are practical, effective and widely considered to be best practice.

INDEX will be ready to welcome you back from 31 May - 2 June 2021 at Dubai World Trade Centre. Ready to meet you face-to-face in a safe environment and at a safe distance. It will allow you to be inspired again. To engage. To re-connect over coffee rather than conference calls. Building new relationships and replacing lost revenues and continuing to create a vibrant marketplace that will accelerate your business through face-to-face events.

INDEX is a staple for anyone in the design industry. It’s great because it gives an opportunity to touch and feel materials. Being there in person changes your perspectives so much! Of course, the show has a great number of products to shop from, but also gives you an opportunity to talk to suppliers from the technical, functional and durability side of things which is the kind of in-depth you don’t usually get access to as a designer.
