CHICAGO — IIDA is proud to announce the winners of the 2024 IIDA/HD Expo Product Design Awards. This esteemed competition recognizes products that excel in seven different criteria, including aesthetics, cost and value, design innovation, environmental responsibility, need, technical advancements, and usage. This year's entries were evaluated by a panel of distinguished design industry experts.

“Innovative product design is essential to the whole hospitality experience, as the object or item’s use must to captivate and contribute to the guest’s whole experience," said IIDA Executive Vice President and CEO, Cheryl S. Durst, Hon. FIIDA. “This competition, and the Expo, are key to showcasing visionary designers as they evolve for that experience through their craft. We look forward to seeing how these winning designs inspire others.”

This year’s jury of design professionals included Rottet Studio Principal and Design Director, Chris Evans; HOK Principal and Practice Leader, Kelly Lott; and BRPH Chief Design and Creative Leader, Cristi Moore, IIDA.

“We saw designs that address needs and use cases for a variety of spaces while also inspiring and innovating – all huge factors when designing for the hospitality space,” said Moore on behalf of the jury. “The jury was excited to see this unique and compelling work as the industry continues to highlight experience as a crucial, pivotal factor.”
