Sporting events are no longer the most preferred target for terrorists, according to the Department of Homeland Security. Outdoor events, conferences, festivals, and other events featuring public figures are all vulnerable. And with over a thousand different-level attacks since 2015, it’s no surprise that safety and security are among the top concerns for event professionals.

Boutique Design New York (BDNY) is the leading trade fair and conference for the hospitality design industry, serving the eastern United States, Canada and Europe. Presented annually by Boutique Design at NYC’s Javits Center, BDNY brings interior designers, architects, purchasing agents and hospitality owners/developers together with manufacturers and marketers of high-caliber design elements for hospitality interiors. For two high-energy days each November, it’s the creative nexus of hospitality design—a trade fair and conference with boutique DNA and a focus on innovation, culminating with our industry’s most prestigious awards presentation, the Gold Key Awards Gala. All taking place in the cultural capital of the Americas, a perennial hotbed of development activity and design inspiration.
BDNY will introduce you to the hospitality industry’s moguls and mavericks, its rising stars and thought leaders—in CEU-accredited seminars, lively interviews on the exhibit floor and hot-ticket social events held at design-forward venues in Manhattan. Join us this fall and in two fast-track days you’ll glean wisdom from some of the most talented and influential figures in the hospitality realm—many based in the Northeast region. You’ll see inventive new furnishings, lighting and textiles you can’t wait to build a design around. And you’ll experience a broad range of exhibitor products in context, via networking spaces created by leading hospitality design firms exclusively for Boutique Design.
Held each November alongside HX: The Hotel Experience at New York’s Javits Center, the BDNY trade fair and conference has charted double-digit growth each year since its inception. For 2015, attendance grew by 16 percent, landing BDNY on Trade Show Executive (TSE) magazine’s annual 50 Fastest-Growing Shows list for the third consecutive year. The draw? BDNY’s elevated atmosphere, focused product selection, extensive conference program and not-so-hurried pace—an environment conducive to meaningful, fruitful conversations with manufacturers, industry visionaries and peers. All taking place in the cultural capital of the Americas, and culminating with our industry’s most prestigious awards gala.
