I like discovering new places to eat and drink. I also take photos at punk rock gigs sometimes.

Talking with Fady Hachem - interior design and branding innovator

Posted by Tanya Timmers on Sep 12, 2016 9:30:00 AM

Fady Hachem got his kickstart in interior design while he was still in university and somehow convinced the owners of Bond Bar to let him run the venue's $2 million dollar overhaul.

He managed to pull off an elegant and unique look for the Melbourne venue, and he hasn't slowed down since. He took on the Adelphi Hotel as just one of his projects and has been in and out of the Middle East for work. 

We were quite impressed when we heard about Fady's achievements, so much so that we have asked him to share his stories and wisdom at our next Typsy Live event in Sydney. We're already counting down the days to the event (less than a month to go!), but we got a chance to talk to him recently about his hospitality interior design experiences and how he tackles his projects.

Nicholas Rubwright is the founder of Dozmia, a platform that recommends music to users based on what they already listen to. We asked him for advice on choosing the most suitable music for your venue, and he shared some interesting insights.

If we had to name one thing we think is at the absolute core of hospitality, it would be customer experience. If you get customer experience right, your customers will love you, they will come back time and time again, and they will spread the word about you.
