We already seem to live in a world of ‘futuristic’ hotels, from the six-star pleasure palaces of Dubai to the sleeping pods of the Far East. So what will guests actually want from their hotel rooms in the coming decades? Working with the most forward-thinking brains in the British independent hotel sector, and top luxury living space designers Two’s Company Interior Design – Nick Sunderland and incumbent president of the British Institute of Interior Design, Gilly Craft – the Independent Hotel Show has found out. In our dazzling installation and this report, we’ve identified key trends in product innovation, consumer behaviour and, of course, technology to pinpoint what hotel rooms might look like in the years to come – and how they’ll provide for guests’ changing needs.
We hope it’ll help you, Britain’s independent hoteliers, to future-proof your businesses – and encounter some stellar new ideas to take away and get excited about. See you in the brave new world.
