The Independent Hotel Show, billed as the business event for luxury and boutique hotels, that takes place at London’s Olympia on October 16-17, 2018 will reveal The Hotel Room of the Future.

The installation has been designed by Two’s Company Interior Design based on research and roundtables with industry pioneers and so-called futurists.

Nicholas Sunderland of Two’s Company Interior Design told us “Creating a room with 21st Century technology, luxury, comfort and outstanding service for the guest, as well as seamless interaction with front of house and housekeeping, are the challenges of today’s hotelier. Our choices to convey this are carefully chosen and researched to create a room with outstanding product and service.”

There will also be a discussion at the Innovation Stage on October 16, 2018 to understand the process of how The Hotel Room of the Future was made, featuring Gilly Craft, BIID president and partner and designer at Two’s Company Interior Design; Rodney Hoinkes, chief insight and innovation officer, Fresh Montgomery; and Petra Clayton, managing director of Custard Communications.

Rodney Hoinkes said “We all hear about the huge investments in technology, personalisation, and design being undertaken by the chains. The Hotel Room of the Future is about the future that matters to independent hoteliers and their guests. What are the true trends, not just fads, and where should focus and budget be spent and wisely avoided. How, where, and why should they invest to compete for the benefit of their visitors and their operations.”
