Less than a week to Sleep!

The countdown is on for Sleep 2013, which opens its doors on Wednesday 20th November at 10am. Over two days, Europe’s leading hotel design and development event will offer an exceptional spread of ground-breaking ideas and newly launched products for architects, designers, specifiers, hotel operators, owners and developers who want to stay ahead of the game.

Sleep Conference Latest – First-come-first-served sessions available!
Ken Shuttleworth, Founding Partner of Make Architects, the award-winning international architecture practice, will open the conference with an exploration of inspiration. As a leading designer, he will share the processes, influences and inspiration that go into designing installations for landmark projects, either for hospitality, popular/cultural events or high profile brands. Other sessions will look at hotels as labs of innovation, sonic branding, the opportunity of refurbishment, what Asia has in store for the European hospitality sector, and lots more.
Sky and Samsung in Sleep Debut
Boxbuild, in collaboration with SKY and SAMSUNG, will be showcasing technology enabled hotel experiences in the new Tech Hub. They will be demonstrating some of the latest in checking-in or booking via smart phone or branded, self-service screens as well as their in-room control systems.

Pop Up Party
A late night opening from 6pm to 8pm on 20th November will bring on the party vibe with champagne flowing and Michaelangelo L’Acqua of Soniq – A Luxury Division of DMI Music & Media, will be spinning on Evoni’s super sleek Apollo DJ table.
Sleep Hotel Bar Revealed
Nous Design, with Laufen and contractors Willmott Dixon, has risen to the creative challenge this year. Laufen has manufactured the bar itself, a dramatic sculptural form crafted from re-purposed shower trays destined to go on tour around design shows across Europe next year.

NEWH Returns
The NEWH Gallery will host the outstanding work of the 2013 Award winning Scholarship graduates from the Royal College of Art. The display will reveal the latest in design innovation across a range of media, all of which have been selected for their potential application in a hospitality environment, and the students will all be on hand to discuss their work.

Sleep Cinema Launched
In another first, the Sleep Cinema, located upstairs next to the NEWH Gallery, brings the glamour and celebrity of the European Hotel Design Awards into the heart of Sleep – the chance for visitors to see the ceremony and find out who won Europe’s most prestigious hotel design awards.

Every Exhibition Stand sold out!
For discovering the hottest new products to make a splash on the hospitality design scene, look no further than the Sleep Exhibition, with almost a third of this year’s participating companies showcasing their products and services for the first time at Sleep, including those from Hong Kong and America as well as across Europe.
