Sleep & Eat has unveiled a new online platform to bring the hospitality industry together.

Following their recent announcement of a new matchmaking programme for the live Sleep & Eat event in November, the organisers of Europe’s largest hospitality design and business show have further announced that they will be extending the programme to continue after the doors have closed. This will be facilitated by the launch of Sleep & Eat Virtual, an online platform enabling the industry to establish even more meaningful conversations for the year to come.

Before the show, Sleep & Eat Virtual will allow all registered attendees – architects, designers, developers, brand owners and investors – to introduce themselves to one another via a dedicated online portal and to prearrange meetings at the event. Shortly afterwards, the portal will reopen, enabling both attendees and non-attendees to organise virtual, as well as face-to-face, meetings. At this point, Sleep & Eat Virtual will also feature on-demand keynotes and panel sessions from the Sleep Conference as well as ‘Express Networking’ events.

Mark Gordon, Director of Sleep & Eat, says: “The Sleep & Eat Matchmaking Programme is an exciting and unparalleled opportunity to help the industry bounce back from the impact of Covid19.

“It will expand connections beyond the live experience of the two-day show and I have no doubt that this will prove enormously appealing to people around the world. This year, we are determined to do even more of what we have done so well for the past 15 years – bringing the community together to look forward and do business.”

Sleep & Eat 2020 will take place on Tuesday, 17 and Wednesday, 18 November at Olympia, London. To register your interest in attending, visit
