Sustainability is today's most urgent topic for interior designers.
Sustainable Design Summit provides the world's only forum dedicated to making sustainable choices easier for interior designers in the hospitality travel interiors sectors.

Shaping sustainable interiors for land, sea, and air


The Sustainable Design Summit (SDS) brings together brand owners, interior designers, specifiers, and trusted suppliers from across hospitality travel interiors to cross-pollinate ideas alongside leading sustainability experts.

Evolved from the annual Summit, SDS has become a yearly calendar of events facilitating the space for knowledge sharing, product sourcing, and networking through in-person and online Working Groups, and bi-yearly Summits.

In its launch year of 2022, SDS was the first event of its kind to unite representatives from the cruise, hotel, and aircraft interiors sectors. At the request of leading hospitality brands and their sustainability partners, SDS has now expanded its audience to include all hospitality travel interiors sectors including rail and automotive.

SDS invites delegates to share ideas, progress and challenges faced when implementing sustainable initiatives, and join a community of like-minded peers from across hospitality travel interiors.

Advisory Board


The goal of the Sustainable Design Summit platform is to:

  • Inspire – dive into real-world examples and case studies providing commercial context and celebrating truly sustainable design
  • Educate – discover different perspectives and approaches, new materials, and innovative thinking which together create tangible outcomes
  • Guide – develop a clear understanding of the new era of sustainability goals for interiors and create a roadmap for future projects 
  • Collaborate – have new and necessary conversations with buyers and suppliers across the cruise, hotel, and aircraft interiors sectors

The Working Groups
The educational Working Groups have been created to allow the Sustainable Design Summit community to share progress and challenges, and continue conversations throughout the year.

These roundtable events, led by leading hospitality brands, take place online and in-person globally, providing those working within the hospitality travel interiors sectors invaluable learning and networking opportunities.
