LONDON -- OW Hospitality, the hospitality carpeting arm of the Oriental Weavers Group, will celebrate the grand opening of its new showplace in Queens Park on Nov. 8. The company will be holding this special event in conjunction with Sleeper Magazine, a publication covering the hospitality industry.
The 7,500-sq.-ft. area covers the entire ground floor of the company's corporate offices. OW Hospitality will have a creative design center servicing the local design and architectural community and the offices will act as project planning and coordinating hub for the London marketplace.
The showplace and corporate offices are located in Queens Park, a trendy, up-and-coming district in London. The showroom will also be utilized for training, industry seminars and for the company's "Hospitality Partners" as well as industry organizations to hold meetings, events and mini-shows.
"We really wanted to create a space that not only reflects our company's sense of style and fashion, but a very usable space for ourselves and our partner companies in the hospitality business," said Michael Riley, CEO and managing director of OWH. "With continued expansion of OW Hospitality, the new showplace was essential for us to help focus our efforts on the local London design community."
"With London being the company's base of operations and the key European city for the global A&D community, it will play a pivotal role for us by having a more significant presence here," he added. "We are extremely excited about our new home and the coming event. We fully expect it to be the industry's ‘affair of the year' in London! This all further demonstrates our commitment to service the global marketplace."
