AHEAD Americas 2021 winners revealed

AHEAD, the Awards for Hospitality Experience and Design, has announced the AHEAD Americas 2021 winners via a virtual ceremony on the AHEAD website.

From a hedonistic bolthole in Miami’s Art Deco district to a tented camp in Utah’s Canyon Point, the awards recognised conceptual, aesthetic and functional breakthroughs across the region.

Revealed simultaneously during a lunch at The Standard, High Line in New York City – hosted by Global Headline Sponsor RH and featuring a live interview with Tribeca-based design firm Yabu Pushelberg, who received this year’s Outstanding Contribution award – those triumphant on the night impressed the 14-strong panel of operators, developers, architects and designers with a mixture of style and substance.

The resulting winners will now go on to compete against other regions, with worldwide champions crowned at the next AHEAD Global edition. See the full list of winners below:
