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.
