Interested in hospitality design? Latin America? Resorts?  If your answer is yes, do not miss Sergio Saenz at the HD Americas Conference, September 16-17 in Miami.

Saenz, HKS associate principal and senior vice president and director of the HKS Miami hospitality studio, is fresh off his AIA National Convention presentation on hospitality development in Brazil. His hotel portfolio is bursting with work including the Four Seasons Resort and Residences São Paulo, Brazil; W Hollywood Hotel and Residences, Hollywood, Calif.; Grand Solmar Land’s End Resort & Spa, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico; Hyatt Hill Country Resort & Spa, San Antonio, Texas; Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort, Florida, and more.

Saenz will focus on the Grand Solmar Land’s End during a panel discussion, “Showing How It’s Done: Four Case Studies.” Thoughtfulness and thoroughness define this luxurious resort with breathtaking views inside and out. Saenz will present an insider’s take on the project he “designed to life.”

With its proximity to Latin America and the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, Miami is an apt destination and host for HD Americas 2014.
