The “Creative Spark”

3 new project presentations by a responsible/involved party including a voting session and award nomination.

One of the key features and outstanding elements in the program is the ‘Creative Spark’, 3 presentations of innovative projects presented by a responsible/involved party including a voting session by the audience and award nomination.

Important is the following:


Each presentation subject needs to be an innovative hospitality industry project.


Each presented projects needs to be from the local area.


Each presented project needs to be in phase: pre-planning, under construction, recently opened


Each presenter has 15-20 minutes to present the project.


Each presentation needs to be presented in a Pecha Kucha style.

Pecha Kucha is a presentation style where 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each (6 minutes and 40 seconds in total).
This gives the presenter 5 minutes to introduce the presentation and 5 minutes to end the presentation.

After each presentation the audience gets 5 minutes to judge the presentation and after all presentations they judge which presentation is best. They judge on the following criteria:



Fit out quality (FF/E)

Innovation factor/USP

Budget utilisation/sensibility

Commercial viability

Functionality and comfort


Overall impression

The winner will be announced on the day and will automatically be nominated for the
TOPHOTELPROJECTS World Creative Spark, which is a competition in between all best.
