Event Preview: Next Gen & Tonic

Are you a rising hotel design star? Are you a mid-weight design maverick? Are you looking to meet your peers, expand your network, and rub shoulders with the hospitality industry’s leading lights? 

If so, Next Gen & Tonic is the place to be.

Kicking off at 12:30 on Friday 18 November with complimentary G&Ts in the Mush Room, our dedicated mid-weight mixer is the hospitality design community’s latest networking opportunity. 

Designed to raise the profiles and champion the perspectives of future hotel leaders, Next Gen & Tonic is where you can make your mark whilst connecting with the hotel industry’s movers and shakers.

Friday doesn’t have to be for admin. Work from HIX and discover a series of activations, installations and talks exploring the next generation of hotel design, with topics ranging from the power of fiction to the hospitality metaverse.

On top of all this, restaurant designer Yova Yager will be jumping into the HIX MIX with a Next Gen DJ set from 13:00, whilst a reception for the Accor Design Competition winners will showcase the annual programme’s best student concepts. 

We’ve also partnered with Festival of Hospitality for a pre-mixer Networking Masterclass, giving guests a hands-on look at how the experts work a room and build their professional bases. Join the team at 11, then put these skills to work through the rest of the afternoon.
