The Sleep Event is coming up in November, with 150 international companies already booked in to exhibit including first timers Kaldewei UK, Lasvit and Thomas Interiors. Where the show comes alive is in the Sleep Hotel, an installation where each year a range of interior designers are asked to design a 5* luxury hotel room within the confines of a 23sqm space. This year’s rooms are designed by Bisset Adams together with 8build, Nous Design with Overbury, Scott Brownrigg with Willmott Dixon Interiors and Yasmin Mahmoudieh.
Alongside the show there is also the European Hotel Design Conference, with presentations, panel discussions and debates for the hotel design, development and investment industries. This year’s programme features speakers including interior designer Tara Bernerd, Richard Seymour, co-founder of Seymour Powell, Michael Gray, general manager/area director UK and Ireland at Hyatt, Gregori Chikaher, director, global hotels and leisure business leader at Arup.
This year also marks the 15th year of the European Hotel Design Awards, taking place on Tuesday 20 November. Sleep is the only trade exhibition in Europe to focus entirely on hotel design, development and architecture, featuring suppliers in the bathroom, fabrics, furniture, flooring and lighting industries. It takes place at the Business Design Centre, Islington, London from 21-22 November.
