Co-locating with the shows is the Hospitality.Design.Furniture (HDF) Luxurious Projects Asia, Summit & Awards 2013. In this second edition, the HDF conference will focus on luxury projects from the region, and will also see the launch of a new Awards segment to recognise the best architectural and design firms in the industry.
Following a successful 2012 edition that welcomed 23,552 trade visitors comprising 118 overseas buying delegations, over 512 exhibiting companies from 26 countries, and more than 150 conference delegates, IFFS 2013 expects to usher significantly more quality industry professionals to the trilogy of shows, slated to be held from 9 to 12 March 2013 at the Singapore Expo. To date, 85% of available exhibiting space for IFFS 2013 has already been sold.
The HDF conference and awards show will be held on 11 March 2013 at Max Atria, Singapore Expo. More than 200 delegates are expected to attend the one-day Luxurious Projects Asia Summit and key speakers have already been confirmed. They include Milou Ket from Milou Ket Styling & Design, Frank Santagata from Marina Bay Sands, Gordon Gill from Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, Kratsen Vollmer from Frost & Partners and Jan Zastera from Preciosa Lighting. These professionals will be joined by other trade experts in sharing their knowledge, views, and outlook of the hospitality, design, and furniture industries, with luxury projects across Asia serving as an anchoring theme.
The inaugural HDF Awards will be held during a luncheon, where awards for five categories will be presented to the winning companies.
