Hotel Business Design to Host InspireDesign: A Sensory Experience

ISLANDIA, NY—Inspiration. Innovation. Imagination.

Hotel Business Design is launching a live event, InspireDesign: A Sensory Experience, which will take place July 25, from 6-9 p.m., at the Art Institute of Chicago, located at 111 S. Michigan Ave. in Chicago’s Grant Park. 

This exclusive, intimate event, open to the architecture and design community, will feature presentations and hands-on demonstrations by hotel design & development firm The Gettys Group and SONNY+ASH, a design communication agency specializing in 3D computer graphics.

“We are excited to join with these two amazing firms who are leaders in the design field to bring our audience of designers and architects a truly inspirational event,” said Christina Trauthwein, Editor, Hotel Business Design. “As a designer, it is critical to stay fresh and stay current to turn your vision into reality and really nurture that passion to create. With a forward-thinking approach to design and presentation, your design story can be brought to life.”
