Now in its third year, HD NextGen Forum is an invitation-only conference that blends education, inspiration, business, and socializing for the next generation of hospitality design leaders.

From inspirational keynoters to the influential Owners' Roundtable hosts, the lineup of speakers is sure to motivate and educate. This year's speakers included author and MIT Media Lab researcher David Rose, Ditto Labs and Vitality; Jason Roberts, Oak Cliff Transit Authority and the Better Block Project; Nina Tandon, EpiBone; and Larry Traxler, Hilton Worldwide. Plus, attendees get a chance to hear HD’s Wave of the Future honorees, the magazine’s annual award given out to impressive rising stars, discuss their work—both the challenges and opportunities—during a luncheon. 

The 2016 conference took place June 15-16 at the Watergate Hotel in Washington, DC.
