Sustainable Design Summit returns for 2023

July 12, 2023

(UK) SDS return to London – uniting designers and experts in cruise, hotel and aviation design industries with the shared goal of making hospitality interiors more sustainable.

Held in the Museum of London Dockland’s on the 28 November, the summit will conduct a series of talks, sessions and roundtable discussions. SDS aims to make sustainable choices easier, challenge existing practices and together make practical solutions in the hospitality design sector.

Sustainability is today’s most urgent topic for interior designers. In 2021, the World Travel and Tourism Council established an ambitious roadmap to reach net zero by 2050. Hotel, cruise and airlines are making prominent progress including, changes to key industry players setting sustainability targets and initiatives, adoption of circular product lifecycle schemes, and the cruise interiors community collaborating to establish a Sustainable Maritime Interiors initiative.

After a successful inaugural summit, SDS attendees will be turning conversation into action. This will be catered to in a curated agenda featuring interactive breakout sessions. Representatives of the industries will converge to hold deep cross-sector conversations ranging from product lifespan planning to creating a more collaborative supply chain across all stakeholders.

Alongside the sessions and talks, SDS will also host a product showcase featuring the most environmentally responsible products within the cruise, hotel, and aviation design sectors.

SDS is an opportunity for designers to connect and collaborate on how to increase sustainability as it becomes more intrinsic to the interior and lighting design world. Last year’s event has built strong foundations allowing meaningful conversations and insights that provided collaboration and networking opportunities for delegates.
