Like its sister trade fair on the East Coast, BDwest was created to deliver a more specialized, more design-focused and more productive trade fair experience for hospitality design professionals. Five years later it’s one of the fastest-growing fairs in the U.S., in the hottest of development hotbeds, Downtown L.A.
BDwest’s home, the Los Angeles Convention Center, sits in the heart of the city’s ongoing downtown renaissance, next to the L.A. Live entertainment complex that sparked it back in 2007. Nearby, the 73-story Wilshire Grand Center, set to open in 2017 as the tallest structure in the L.A. skyline, is one of a staggering number of new hotel/residential projects currently underway, joining dozens of inventive new restaurants and bars in the downtown core.
Despite its rapid growth, BDwest remains uniquely boutique, with an elevated setting, an intimate feel, and a degree of personalized service unparalleled in our industry.
BDWEST IS DESIGNED TO:
Estimated 2,500 interior designers, architects, purchasing agents, hospitality owners, developers and operators.
More than 300 manufacturers and marketers of inventive design elements for hotels, restaurants, spas, casinos, night clubs and other related projects.
BDwest is produced by Hospitality Media Group LLC (HMG) in association with the Boutique & Lifestyle Lodging Association, the International Society of Hospitality Purchasers, the International Society of Hospitality Consultants and NEWH, The Hospitality Industry Network. Hospitality Media Group (HMG) is a privately held company serving the global hospitality and related industries specializing in trade fair, conference and event management and development.
Since its inception in 2013, BDwest has given hospitality design professionals a fresh alternative to traditional trade shows, with elevated surroundings, a higher degree of personalized service, and unparalleled opportunities to grow your network and your business.
Join us in L.A. and get to know our industry’s rising stars, creative mavericks and thought leaders—in fully accredited seminars, intimate panel discussions on the exhibit floor and at unique social events held in trend-forward venues around Los Angeles.
In two fast-track days you’ll make valuable connections with some of the most talented and influential figures in hospitality—many based in the SoCal region. You’ll spot 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 exquisite Designed Spaces created by leading hospitality design teams exclusively for Boutique Design.
No other trade fair makes it so easy to do business on-site. From reimbursed travel and parking expenses to pre-arranged supplier/specifier meetings and multiple, upscale F&B options, the BDwest exhibit floor is built for productivity.
Now in its fifth year, the BDwest trade fair and conference has taken the hospitality design industry by storm with its personalized service, unique social events and sponsorships, extensive educational component, and elevated atmosphere conducive to doing business.
BDwest connects manufacturers of high-caliber design elements for hospitality interiors to some of the most sought-after and influential design firms in the hospitality industry, along with purchasing agents and hospitality owners, developers and operators based primarily in the western United States.
Expanding to larger quarters in Downtown Los Angeles in 2016 put BDwest in the epicenter of a white-hot development market that’s bringing thousands of hotel rooms, residences, restaurants and bars to the city’s core.
Plus, SoCal is home to the highest concentration of hospitality design and architecture firms in the western U.S. There’s no better place to be this spring than BDwest—and no better way to spend quality time with clients and prospects actively sourcing FF&E in a booming hospitality market.
