World Architecture Festival 2016
Dezeen Hot List Launch Party
At midday 9th November 2016 Dezeen, the world’s most influential architecture and design magazine, launched the inaugural Dezeen Hot List. As Headline Sponsor and Recruitment Partner, Adrem was thrilled to be part of this remarkable launch.
Based on solid data, Dezeen Hot List analysed over 100 million page views and ranked the most searched for stories and global trends between the period 1 July 2015 to 30 June 2016. The results were comprised of nine categories: Architects, Designers, Brands, Fashion, Institutions, Events, Artists, Schools and Personalities.
“Adrem is delighted to be part of such a ground-breaking and important annual event especially with such a prestigious newsworthy and thought provoking magazine. This is just the start of what will be the ‘go-to’ list of who’s ‘hot’ in our industry – can’t wait to see who’s top of their game next year!”
Del Hossain, Managing Director Adrem Group
Later that evening, the launch party at the Ace Hotel was attended by many who were featured on the list as well as Architecture and Design’s elite. Guests were welcomed to the party with cocktails at the door with thanks to Bacardi and Double Dutch.
As a memento guest received a copy of the coveted Dezeen Book of Interviews, which documents the conversations with leading international figures in architecture and design. Partnered with Adrem’s limited edition tote, aptly featuring a quote from Zaha Hadid – “I never took ‘no’ for an answer”.
In addition, guests were present with a collection of gifts contributed by friends of Dezeen featuring brands such as: Tom Dixon, Native Union, Alessi, Aesop, Mast Brothers, Ferm Living, Mooi, Lelo, and Dezeen Watch Store. All of which were featured in the top 400 list.
