The International Hotel, Motel + Restaurant Show® (IHMRS) invites hospitality designers from around the world to submit entries for the 31st annual Gold Key Awards for Excellence in Hospitality Design, the premier interior design competition for the industry.

The awards are presented in eight categories: best hotel design, guest room, lobby/reception area, lounge/bar, restaurants/casual dining, restaurants/fine dining, spa and suite.

Designers of hotels, motels, timeshares, restaurants, clubs, cruise ships, casinos, conference centers, spas and other hospitality facilities are encouraged to enter the competition, which last year considered nearly 200 submissions representing 19 countries and territories. All entries will be judged by a panel of prominent designers representing both the hotel and restaurant industries.

Finalists and grand prize winners will be honored at the Gold Key Awards Breakfast, on Monday, November 14, 2011. The event, which serves as a scholarship fundraiser for NEWH, the Hospitality Industry Network, will take place from 7:30-9:30 am, at New York City’s InterContinental Times Square, during the 96th annual International Hotel, Motel + Restaurant Show. Highlighting the ceremony will be the presentation of the “Designer of the Year” Award. In addition, NEWH, the Hospitality Industry Network, will present its “Icon of the Industry” distinction.

The 96th annual International Hotel, Motel + Restaurant Show will run Saturday, November 12, through Tuesday, November 15, 2011, at New York City’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.  Following a full-day of conference and networking activities on Saturday, November 12, the IHMRS will feature three full days of exhibits from Sunday, November 13, through Tuesday, November 15.  The market presents some 700 hospitality industry suppliers and attracts 30,000 in total trade attendance.
