The most prestigious awards for the hospitality industry, the annual HD Awards, presented by Hospitality Design magazine, recognizes some of the best and most innovative achievements in both project and product design around the globe. The Awards also honors Hotelier of the Year and Designer of the Year, chosen by HD’s editorial team.

Additionally, West Elm and HD have partnered on the HD/West Elm Student Product Design Competition. Now in its third year, the contest tasks students, and those out of school for up to a year, with designing a product targeting the hospitality industry that will be produced by West Elm.

The 17th annual HD Awards will be held on September 21, 2021 at Cipriani South Street in New York.

In 2020, the annual celebration was held virtually, with the breadth of the industry showcased in 730 projects and 310 products submitted across nearly 40 combined categories. The ceremony also recognized Proper Hospitality as Hotelier of the Year and Joyce Wang as Designer of the Year.

Thank you to our 2020 sponsors—Williams-Sonoma, Coastal Shower Doors, Mandy Li, Dometic, Delta, Viso, and DuPont—for making the virtual event possible.
