2023 Trend: Plant Forward

10 trends are highlighted at this inspiring fair for hoteliers. Of course, greenery and greening with a view to future-proofing hotels should not be missing from this list. That is why you will find this theme in trend 3: Plant Forward. It has been scientifically proven that a green environment contributes to better relaxation. In addition, studies in environmental psychology show that people prefer natural environments over non-natural/built environments.¹  When choosing a hotel, people will therefore more likely select a hotel (unconsciously) with a natural appearance. Finally, greening has another important advantage: the investment pays for itself.

In the spotlight: Hotel & Wellness Zuiver

A wonderful example of creating a green hotel by applying a SemperGreenwall Outdoor is Hotel & Wellness Zuiver, located in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. In an interview by ArchitectenPunt, Rolf van den Heuvel, marketing manager of Hotel & Wellness Zuiver, is positive about the addition of the living walls: ‘Thanks to the green facades on the two buildings, our resort makes an even clearer connection with its green environment. (…) We are extremely happy with the result, just like our guests. Every day, just before their departure, I see hotel guests taking a quick picture of this hotel location.’
