Again this year, prior to the evening of the HOSPY Awards, was an Owners’ Roundtable. The Owners’ Roundtable was launched over a decade ago by Hospitality Design at the HD Expo. In the past several years, they have partnered with NEWH, The Hospitality Industry Network, in presenting this successful format at various trade shows throughout the country, and the NEWH Leadership Conference. As the Hospitality Industry’s only rotating roundtable, this event allows guests to meet owners, developers and brand executives face-to-face for a free flowing discussions of industry issues, forecasts, ideas, and trends.

The HOSPY Awards recognizes individuals and firms for extraordinary achievement in architecture, design, and development in the hospitality industry. The event raises funds for student scholarships in architecture, interior design, construction, hotel management, gaming management and culinary arts.

During the awards portion of the event, awards were presented to participating firms.
