196+ forum Milan

This was the 196+ forum Milan 2023

We are incredibly grateful to everyone who joined us this year and for all the precious memories we created together during the 196+ forum Milan from 16 – 17 April 2023. There were so many moments that have stayed with us! The Walk & Talk Tour on the day before the event and the Reception at the rooftop of the Radisson Collection Santa Sofia. The spectacular view, the great atmosphere and the amazing drinks were the best start to the event. We are happy to announce that we have secured one of the best hotels in the area, which stands out with its unique style and will from now on be the home for the 196+ forum Milan. The move to our new home the nhow hotel Milan proofed to be the right decision, as it is located in Tortona, right in the beating heart of Salone del Mobile.

With more than 150 attendees and 30 speakers the event was a big success. We heard about the future of design in resort, greenfield and new construction, hospitality beyond hotels, the impact of ESG on design and much more. Our speakers gave valuable insights into the latest trends and the key facing challenges in the industry.

Get ready for 196+ forum Milan 2024

Let us meet again for next year’s 196+ forum Milan from 14 -15 April 2024!
We are already working on next year’s edition and an exciting programme. Make sure to mark your calendars and stayed tuned for updates!

2023 Highlights:

With more than 30 speakers on stage, 196+ forum Milan once again became an international platform where people working in the same sectors gathered and exchanged ideas. Likeminded experts and individuals met and talked about their expertise’s and current developments. We heard from many fantastic speakers such as Erik Nissen Johansen, Founder and Creative Director at Stylt Trampoli AB, who talked about the difference is in the difference. Christina Gentile, Senior Real Estate Consultant Hospitality Department at World Capital Group, introduced us to the topic of conversions and renovations. And there were so many more interesting and insightful presentations shared.

Hotel Design Award:

Once again one the highlights of this year’s 196+ forum Milan proofed to be the Hotel Design Award, awarded during our gala dinner, where we had the opportunity to celebrate a worthy winner! With 21 hotel applications from nine European countries, the interdisciplinary twelve-member jury had tough selections to make. The cōmodo, the winner of this year’s award, convinced the jury in particular by combining a preserved, vacant existing building with locally influenced contemporary interior design, complemented by modern art with a connection to the location as well as materials and furnishing objects that create a link to different, past decades and thus the history of the house.
