BBG-BBGM and King & Grove Hotels will each present exceptional – yet very different – spaces complementing the incredible exhibitor product mix at BDNY 2012.

Overlooking the exhibit floor, internationally-renowned architecture and interior design firm BBG-BBGM has created a networking space reminiscent of the urban setting of this leading hospitality interiors fair. The industrial lounge celebrates design from emerging artists to the established fine arts, and elevates the gritty elements of New York City with refined products at the forefront of design.

Situated in the Javits Center lobby, the King & Grove Hotels “Designer Lounge” will offer attendees a place to relax, network and socialize during the two-day show. Inspired by Ruschmeyer’s property in Montauk, Long Island, the Lounge reflects the casual and fun-loving atmosphere that is Ruschmeyers and provides imagery of King & Grove’s four primary markets in Montauk, Miami Beach, Brooklyn, and New York City.

“These unique spaces will offer BDNY attendees an opportunity to see the latest design-driven products in a live setting,” said Michael Schneider, publisher of hospitality products for ST Media Group. “BBG-BBGM and King & Grove Hotels will each present exceptional – yet very different – spaces complementing the incredible exhibitor product mix at BDNY 2012.”

Sponsors for the King & Grove Designer Lounge include Astek, Inc., Designtex, Fabric Innovations, Infinitypix, Moore & Giles, Coast to Coast, Bose, Janus Et Cie, Quality & Company, and Troy Lighting Contract Hospitality. BBG-BBGM networking space sponsors are Astek, Inc. and Crypton.

Visuals of both spaces can be found online at, in addition to complete show details such as exhibiting companies, seminar details, events, and registration. Attendee registration is $50 per person and includes admission to the adjacent International Hotel, Motel + Restaurant Show® (IHMRS).

BDNY will run Sunday, November 11, and Monday, November 12, 2012, featuring more than 250 manufacturers of high-end, unique and innovative design products for hospitality, including furniture, lighting, wall coverings, fabric, seating, accessories, artwork, carpet and flooring, materials, bath and spa. The fair will draw some 5,000 interior designers, architects and purchasing executives, along with crossover participation from hospitality property owners and operators in attendance at the adjacent IHMRS.

The 97th annual IHMRS will run Saturday, November 10, through Tuesday, November 13, 2012, at New York City’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. Following a full day of conference and networking activities on Saturday, November 10, the IHMRS will feature three full days of exhibits from Sunday, November 11, through Tuesday, November 13. The market presents some 700 hospitality industry suppliers and attracts 25,000 in total trade attendance.
