DPA&D sponsored the international event that aims at promoting and showcasing the hotel industry in Latin America
On September 28 and 29, SAHIC’s annual conference was held in Lima, Peru, bringing together the top representatives of the hospitality industry. DPA&D sponsored the international event that aims at promoting and showcasing the hotel industry in Latin America. As a member of the "Innovation in Hospitality" panel, Architect Daniel Piana developed the concept of innovation that inspires his designs, without losing sight of the aesthetic variable as well as the changes in guests’ needs, the socio-cultural environment, and the economic-financial feasibility of the business. About the presentation: As the rooms in a hotel represent approximately 70% of the total investment and surface of the hotel,
Architect Piana stressed how important it is to focus on this point by incorporating effective solutions. Such is the case of the prefabricated custom bathrooms which are integrated into the surface of the rooms thus creating a “virtual” increase in space, and actually reducing the surface and costs. This decision on the design of the rooms allows up to 7% reduction in the cost of investment together with several advantages that concern environmental impact, and which result from the industrial manufacture of bathrooms. The event was highly recognized for the number and level of its participants, and for the content of the presentations. Next year, the venue will be Guayaquil, Ecuador.
