What is TOP ID?
RECOGNIZING DESIGN FIRMS FOR SUPPORT AND LEADERSHIP IN THE HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY – The TopID award is a prestigious honor determined by NEWH chapter and regional boards to recognize design excellence and promote the top design firms engaged in supporting NEWH and its mission of scholarship and education. A firm’s custom design work in the hospitality industry, along with membership and support the firm has provided the NEWH chapter/region, is considered in the selection process.
