Sleep Event, which is recognized around the world as Europe's leading and uniquely curated hotel design and development event, is evolving to become Sleep + Eat Event. This next stage in the event's life recognises the growing interdependence of restaurants, bars and hotels in creating the full hospitality design experience. As well as the addition of the R&B design element, this year's event will be relocating to the National Hall in Olympia.
"Sleep has been phenomenally successful with year-on-year growth in visitor numbers and an increasingly global profile while retaining all the values that make it so special - it's boutique, experimental and experiential, a conceptual playground on the one hand and the place that people come to do business on the other," said Mark Gordon, Brand Director of Sleep + Eat. "Sleep + Eat will allow us to build logically and thoughtfully on this legacy and the move to Olympia means we will have more space to do so. It will ensure that new ideas and first-time exhibitors, together with respected industry names and established design-led suppliers, will continue to fuel the event and that we can give space to our community of hoteliers, restaurateurs, owners and other industry professionals to see design excellence in all its forms."
The 2018 Sleep + Eat will be held on November 20-21 at London's Olympia.
