Radical Innovation, a platform promoting disruptive, industry-changing ideas within the hotel space, announces the opening of the annual Radical Innovation Award for 2017.
The competition has been created to discover concepts that have the power to change the hotel industry and is open to both professionals and students and their ideas.
The Radical Innovation Award 2017 prize fund includes $16,500 in prize money, invitation to the Radical Innovation live event in New York, scholarship opportunities and more.
Participants are invited to enter original, built or unbuilt concepts that offer the market something that is not widely available.
Since being founded in 2006, Radical Innovation has awarded over $150,000 to creative thinkers with visionary ideas in hotel design and operations.
Past winners have included Driftscape, a drone-hotel concept designed by architecture and design firm HOK; Koi, a bridge hotel concept designed by MM Architects in Paris; and ZOKU, a concept that blends co-work spaces with the hotel. ZOKU opened its first property in Amsterdam in 2016.
