LONDON - Sleep, the annual hotel design and development event which took place in London, 26th – 27th November, proved once again why it is considered to be in a league of its own by hotel designers, architects and senior industry executives. Experiential, insightful, thought-provoking and eyecatching, Sleep 2014 attracted some 4,000 visitors keen to do business with the exhibitors and network with peers, provided a full programme of conference sessions to packed houses and engaged with some of the industry’s most respected designers and hoteliers. Visitors came from Germany, Italy, Spain and France, the Russian Federation, the USA, South East Asia and the Middle East as well as from the UK.
More than 150 exhibitors participated in Sleep 2014, comprising a hand-picked selection of newcomers and new exclusive brands along with recognised industry names from around the globe. The exhibition highlights the companies whose products and services help to create award-winning hotels, and, in keeping with the show’s emphasis on high quality design, exhibitors excelled this year in producing visually striking stands to best showcase their products to the hospitality design community. Just a few of the many with stand-out displays were Curiosa & Curiosa, Dare Studio, FRONT London, Garpa, Lasvit, Morgan Furniture, mycoocoon, Northern Lighting and Swarovski.
New exhibitors were delighted with the quality and international mix of visitors to their stands, with Designheure, Gira, Jacuzzi, Moroccan Bazaar, Orangebox, Sara Newman Design, TOTO Europe and Ultrafabrics amongst this year’s newcomers. Says Jonathan Hinton, Managing Director of Ultrafabrics Europe Ltd: "The response to Ultrafabrics first showing at Sleep was amazing, and the interest in our product far exceeded our expectations. Such was the interest we were getting calls the following day from designers asking when we would be able to visit them in their offices! As an International company, the level of strong interest and enquiries from outside of the UK was also very pleasing. We will certainly be returning in 2015”.
The industry’s favourite brands were once again well represented including lead sponsor GROHE, Agua Fabrics, Chelsom, Dornbracht, Harlequin Contract, Heathfield, Keramag Design, Kobe, OW Hospitality, Vescom and Wilton Carpets who each unveiled their latest designs. For many exhibitors, both new and returning, the show is a welcome opportunity to connect face-to-face with existing clients and discuss their project requirements as well as to engage with potential new ones. - See more at: http://www.traveldailynews.com/news/article/63655/sleep-europe-rsquo-s-hotel-design-amp#.dpuf
