We discover concepts that have the power to change the hotel industry.
Submission for the 2017 Competition is now Open!
Radical Innovation welcomes big ideas for the guest experience—from inside and outside of hospitality, from any country, and from professionals and students alike.
Each year, we put out a call for entries. Our criteria? Show us what the hotel environment can be. Wow us with creativity and feasibility. Finalists are selected by a jury and flown to New York City to compete on the Radical Innovation stage. There, finalists present to an audience of hotel developers, owners, executives and designers who vote for the grand prize winner.
Grand prize: $10,000; Runner-Up: $5,000
Competition finalists will be flown to New York to present their concepts during the Radical Innovation live event.
Winners have the chance to be incubated.
