Our second trip to the Nashville, Tennessee, HI Connect Tradeshow turned out to be a big success! Now in the second year of its patented vignette layout, the show was quite well attended and displayed some fascinating concepts from some of the top designers around North America.
Our International Sales Manager, Andrew Davis was in attendance and presenting three of our different product lines throughout three award winning vignettes! The HI Connect tradeshow has an award system titled “the people’s choice awards” which are voted by attendees during the show.
The “Best Bathroom” award was presented to the WJ Weeks Architecture firm and their collaborative “D2 Luxury Bathroom” vignette (shown right). A host of suppliers including Dispenser Amenities contributed to this vignette, with our customized AVIVA Dispensers prominently displayed in the shower, at the vanity, and above the bathtub. We were so happy to be a part of this achievement and prove to the world that sustainable amenities programs are well-suited to a luxury environment!
Secondly, we were one of the featured vendors in DPOV Interior’s “C5 Upscale Bathroom” award winning vignette (shown in feature image). Recognized for the most interesting use of lighting, this well-lit environment suited our brightly customized iQon Dispenser perfectly (shown right). This bright and colorful environment was a perfect setting to demonstrate the versatility of the iQon unit. By simply inserting the colorfully printed insert into the front of the iQon unit, the dispenser matched the bathroom décor perfectly.
Finally, as a featured supplier in the HVS Design “D13 Wellness Suite Guestroom”, we were a part of securing the “I Need That In My Hotel” award. The Wellness Suite was a beautifully design concept which featured a traditional brown leather and wood concept giving way to a very contemporary blue and white text-covered wall paper in the bathroom accented perfectly with our Nickel Wave Dispensers near the doorway.
All in all we made a pretty good showing at HI Connect, showing up with three of our different product lines and leaving with three different award titles.
