Boutique Design New York (BDNY) serves the hotel and leisure industry, focusing exclusively on interior design and architecture for hospitality spaces. Held in conjunction with the International Hotel, Motel + Restaurant Show (IHMRS), this fast-growing trade fair has given design professionals and hospitality developers/ owners an opportunity to source products, earn CEU credits and explore the newest spaces in NYC, the epicenter of design.
Until recently, the opportunity to have a celebrity attend an event, attach themselves to a name-brand or endorse a certain product or idea was untouchable. The thought of paying a person to promote a product was seen as something only Fortune 500 companies could afford. Social media has changed all that with brands and businesses utilizing celebrity influencers to connect directly with their demographics and increase sales and profits.
