MINISTRY OF IDEAS 2013 – IAN SCHRAGER
Since co-founding legendary nightclubs Studio 54 and Palladium, entrepreneur Ian Schrager has been a truly revolutionary force within the travel industry. Following the launch of the world’s first ‘boutique’ hotel, Morgans, in 1984, Schrager went on to create game-changing properties including the Royalton, Delano, Mondrian, Hudson, St Martins Lane and Sanderson, introducing the concepts of lobby socialising, urban resorts, cheap chic and lifestyle hotels along the way. In 2005 Ian sold Morgans Hotel Group and created the Ian Schrager Company. He is currently spearheading new brands PUBLIC and EDITION.
