With a view to setting new standards for hotel rooms of the future, the SHTM collaborated with its teaching and research hotel, Hotel ICON, to again organise a global competition in 2014 to shape guestrooms of tomorrow.

Taking the theme 'The Hotel Room of the Future', the competition this year will be held from September to December 2014. Professionals in interior or hotel design, and design students from tertiary education institutions are invited to submit their design proposals individually or as a team for one of the Tomorrow's Guestrooms to showcase their vision of hotel room design for guests of the future.

Entries in the competition will be reviewed by an expert panel, and winners may have the chance to have their design realised in one of the dedicated research bedrooms at Hong Kong's one-of-a-kind teaching and research hotel - Hotel ICON.

An SHTM initiative, Tomorrow's Guestrooms serve as an innovative platform to innovate, develop and showcase new technologies, hotel designs and business concepts in hotel management. Through these dedicated guestrooms, the SHTM is creating a "House of Innovation" not only for the benefit of education and research but also for the advancement of the entire hotel industry
