Organised by the SHTM and Hotel ICON, the “Tomorrow’s Guestrooms” competition aims at setting new standards for hotel rooms for the future. Hotel suppliers and providers in design, technology and well-being who want to play a part in shaping tomorrow’s guestrooms are invited to share their products and knowledge through this exceptional platform.

“We have received a lot of enquiries from the industry and the response is overwhelming,” said Dr Basak Denizci Guillet, Assistant Professor of the SHTM and Co-ordinator of “Tomorrow’s Guestrooms”. “Many have shown a keen interest and have requested more time for preparing their submissions. We are indeed grateful for this level of support and are only too happy to extend the deadline for the benefit of the entire industry”.

As the SHTM continues to look for innovations in the submissions, more products and services entering in the competition will definitely give the School a wider range to select the best and most innovative ones from. Products and services can include:
  • Bathroom amenities, accessories and fixtures
  • Lighting, LED, mood lights, health-related lighting, innovative lighting
  • Fabrics, linen and bedding, curtains and wall coverings, furniture (fixed and loose), beds, art objects, floorings, stationary, garment steamer
  • In-room technology (TV [3D/UHD]), telephone, dock
  • Tea, coffee, minibar items, road warrior accessories
An expert panel will review entrants and winners will be granted the unique opportunity for their products and services to be tested and researched in three dedicated guestrooms at Hotel ICON for a period of six months. The three dedicated guestrooms each have their own unique theme: design, technology and well-being.

Entry to the “Tomorrow’s Guestrooms” competition will be accepted until 22 February 2013. For details and applications, please visit: http://hotelschool.shtm.polyu.edu.hk/tgr.
