What visitors and exhibitors found at Sleep And Eat
Sleep + Eat is the only edited boutique hospitality design event in Europe.
It’s where hospitality leaders meet the world-class designers, consultants, architects and emerging talent creating across hotels, restaurants and bars. The expertly curated exhibition sees brands from across the continent showing off their avant-garde products and concepts. A reimagined floorplan takes visitors on a journey through the wider hospitality supply chain across the entire show. And new installations including the Eat Sets and a dramatic Instagrammable entrance sit alongside cult favourites like the Sleeper Bar.

This Year's Exhibitors
Orchestrated to ensure the best combination of newcomers, established names, larger manufacturers and bespoke artisans.
2018 Sleep Set
This year's challenge evolves with a new twist. Our designers will pair with influential brands that might not immediately spring to mind when you think of hospitality design, but whose style and influence will be subtly reflected in each concept.
The 2018 Sleep & eat Conference brings top level insight together with international and local perspective from keynote speakers and panellists.
CRÈME / Jun Aizaki Architecture
The 2018 Sleeper Bar by CRÈME Design will be centrally located as Sleep + Eat’s buzzy social sphere this year. The bar, supported by Sleeper magazine, furthers CRÈME/Jun Aizaki Architecture & Design’s explorations in traditional natural dying processes and celebrates the colour indigo.
Eat Set 2018
As part of its evolution, Sleep + Eat is expanding its interactive offering to include Eat Sets – three more installations based on restaurant and bar spaces, namely a restaurant designed by ECHO Architecture, a café from 3Stories and a nightclub by Shalini Misra.
