About Us


HD NextGen Forum is presented by Hospitality Design

HD NextGen Forum is an invitation-only conference that blends education, inspiration, business, and networking for the next generation of hospitality design leaders. From inspirational keynotes to the influential leaders of the Owners’ Roundtable, our speakers lineup is sure to motivate and educate.

HD also annually presents the Wave of the Future awards—an honor reserved for designers, architects, owners, and brand executives who we think are young enough to be considered visionary, but tested enough to be considered accomplished. In addition to a June issue spotlight, honorees share their experience during an exclusive panel discussion.

Published 10 times a year, Hospitality Design magazine is the premier trade magazine for the hospitality design industry. It serves owners, operators, brands, purchasing agents, interior designers, and architects involved in the design of hotels, resorts, restaurants, nightclubs, bars/lounges, spas, and all other hospitality-oriented projects. Hospitality Design magazine continues its 35-year mission to publish innovative projects, inspiring products, the latest trends, development spotlights, and interesting interviews with some of the industry’s leading professionals.
