Boutique Design magazine has selected the eleventh annual Boutique 18, its yearly roster of noteworthy, on-the-rise designers in the hospitality industry. The 2016 honorees will be inducted during a ceremony preceding the fourth annual Boutique Design West (BDwest) trade fair and conference, March 31-April 1 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
Honorees will be feted at the BDwest Opening Reception Celebrating the Boutique 18 on Wednesday, March 30, 6:30 – 8:30 PM, at the Conga Room at LA Live.
Honorees will also take part in a panel discussion, “Meet the Boutique 18,” to be held Friday, April 1, 3:45 – 4:45 PM, at BDwest. Each designer’s achievements will be profiled in the March issue of Boutique Design magazine.
