NEWH - The Hospitality Industry Network


2012’s Brightest Hospitality Designers

Friday, July 27th, 2012

NEWH, a non-profit organization, is the premier networking resource for the hospitality industry. Designers, students, and other industry professionals are connected and educated by NEWH's seminars, trade meetings, and scholarship opportunities. Part of the organization's mission is to encourage cooperation and disseminate information among the hospitality industry, which they accomplish through awards for excellence. 

This year, NEWH, the Hospitality Industry Network, named 51 firms that are setting the pace in elite hospitality design, which they dubbed the Top ID. “The leading firms are firms who have embraced change and reach to the future,” says Trisha Poole, principal of Design Poole and a member of NEWH. Since these firms know all about designing the best hotels, we had to ask:
