With the support of the China Institute of Interior Design, the Interior Design China Magazine and the Sino-Italy Campus of Tongji University, the Shanghai International Building & Interior Design Conference - 'No Limits to Design: Bridging the Communication Gap' - gathered together design gurus such as Adam Khan, the winner of the Architect of the Year 2012, and Marco Piva, the winner of the European Hotel Design Award to Shanghai, to make speeches. They joined forces to examine the meaning of classic design cases both in China and overseas, and to analyse overseas advanced engineering cases and international design trends, as well as to discuss architecture and interior decoration culture collisions between east and west.

The International Hospitality Design & Engineering Forum gathered leaders from the China Tourist Hotel Association, designers and engineering directors from Wanda Hotels & Resorts, the Greenland Group, Intercontinental Hotels & Resorts, Starwood Hotels & Resorts, New Century Hotels, as well as famous hotel designers from USA and Italy, and engineering system and product suppliers from MEGAMAN, LEGRAND, etc. They discussed the general direction of design and technology in the Chinese hotel industry with the audience, as well as putting forward their reflections and creative ideas.

In addition, the Hotel Plus - Mockup Hotel Room Show was another highlight. It invited world famous hotel management groups, design teams and high-end engineering material manufacturers to design and set up six demonstration hotel rooms, and the total exhibition area was about 1,000 square metres. Cutting-edge decorative art, green materials and new concept designs were used to showcase the standards for star-rated hotel guest rooms, the future hotel engineering standards, as well as to guide future understanding and the practice of interior design alongside hotel engineering standards. All of these not only stimulated development trends, but also provided interior design reference points and overall engineering solutions for star-rated hotels.
