The shape of the Awards will see a Consumer focused section running each year, with 2019’s nominations now open. The winners announcement will then take place on the 2nd October 2019. This consumer-focused event will repeat in 2020 and will be overlaid with the conceptual design element during the year.

Every other year, we will reprise the conceptual design challenge on top of the annual consumer driven Blue Badge Awards. These Awards will be open to any Architecture, Product or Systems designers in a similar way to previous incarnations of The Bespoke Access Awards from 2016 to 2018.


Change always takes time and we are not suggesting that solutions will have an immediate impact, but we believe in the immeasurable benefits of providing a spark for the future of the global hotel industry and the people that design buildings, products and services around it. 


Our aim is to see winning ideas come to market and be adopted throughout the global hotel industry. Bespoke Hotels have already contracted with the 2016 Bespoke Access Awards winners and we hope that others will follow suit.


The Consumer Awards section will be voted by the Public, while judging for the Conceptual Design Awards has featured a range of people combining technical, industry and life experience
