Each year we ask our delegates to provide detailed feedback on their HI Design Europe experience. Here is a sample of Buyer testimonials from the last event. You can also read the Supplier testimonials.
It was a great event, really well organised and had the opportunity to meet new suppliers and their solutions which was perfect timing given we are launching all FFE tenders this summer
Senior Director of Procurement – Radisson Hotel Group
It was a very impressive and interesting time. Good to meet business partners and colleagues. We got in contact with new suppliers. The Organization was excellent.
CEO – Bost Interior Design
Another excellent event and good to see a lot of new suppliers and other designers there too. Well organised as always. Thanks for the great job in making it a smooth-running event
Owner – Michael Veal Design
Generally, great, very good networking effect. You get to know specific hotel producers which would be otherwise hard to research. Also, great that there are sessions of speeches and discussions – a great break in between everyday work 🙂
Senior Designer – BWM Architekten
HI Design gave me such a great opportunity to meet some of the suppliers we work with on current projects as well as prospective suppliers in a relatively short time and all in one place. HI Design was very informative as it gave us a good overview of the industry’s trends and productive as I met several suppliers (majority of them for the first time) and I was introduced to a big range of products and services
Project Manager, Procurement EMEA – Hilton Worldwide
Well run event that was very beneficial to attend.
Associate Director – Softroom Limited
Great event this year! The seminars were also informative and quite thought-provoking. I made some good contacts and look forward to doing some businesses together with some of the suppliers.
Project Manager – Far East Consortium
Great location, well organised, good business outcomes for future projects
Development Project Manager – Generator Hostels
The event was worth every minute!! The meetings and seminar combinations allowed everyone to have a range of activities outside of just buyer/supplier meetings.
Head of Design – GLH Hotels
Great Event this year. I think the venue plays an important part in the success. A good mix of people from all areas of design and supply.
Director – Leon Black
Excellent event, very organised and welcoming! The range of suppliers was great.
Director – Studio Mica
The event had a very happy and pleasant energy about it. It was a great platform to reconnect and make new connections. We’ve walked away excited
Director – Upperworth Studios
I have personally never attended before, as in my previous roles, I always sent the team. I will definitely attend each year and bring a colleague (If I’m invited!)
Director – K&J Management Solutions LLP
Overall very good experience. Great opportunity to meet suppliers in one place as it can be a struggle to do this on a day to day basis during working hours. Great opportunity to meet new suppliers too. Venue was lovely, great environment for networking. Found it useful and found some new suppliers that I am keen to work with in the future. Would love to attend again in the future
Senior Designer – Goddard Littlefair
Great event and a really good venue. Lovely group of people too!
Partner – Conran & Partners
A wonderful event, I think probably my favourite European Hi Design to date (although I did rather enjoy Split and Lisbon also!) I can’t wait to attend next year’s one in wonderful Madrid.
