Sleeper Media has acquired TOPHOTELPROJECTS and repositioned it as THP.

Sleeper Media, the market-leading publisher and event organiser for the global hospitality design industry, has formally announced its acquisition of TOPHOTELPROJECTS GmbH (THP), the leading provider of data, information and news on hotel projects, brands and properties worldwide. The process completed in August 2022 following its strategic investment in the company in July 2019.

New brand identity

The acquisition will also see the company repositioned as a division of Sleeper Media under a new brand identity – THP and THP News websites have been launched today.

You will notice the fresh, clean branding on this site, as your essential portal for all things hotel development is now called THP News.

Numerous enhancements and improvements to THP’s database are currently being implemented for roll-out in 2023.

Joining forces

THP provides the hotel industry with information and research on hotel projects, groups and contacts through its database subscription services. It also offers extensive online media coverage and digital advertising opportunities via its THP News website and daily newsletter.

Sleeper Media publishes print magazines including Sleeper, Supper and Starboard, along with their affiliated websites and social media channels. It is also the organiser of AHEAD – the Awards for Hospitality Experience and Design; and Sleeper Sessions, a global series of meetings-driven events connecting specifiers and suppliers in hospitality design.

Experience combination

Matt Turner, editor-in-chief of Sleeper Media, commented: “This acquisition cements our position as the market-leading media company for hospitality design and development. It allows us to combine our proven experience in print media and face-to-face events with THP’s capabilities in providing strategic information and insights via online media. The combination of print, digital and events with in-depth research and data services will provide industry stakeholders across the spectrum with a 360° media offer to support and enhance their commercial activities.”

Andreas Rohde, MD of THP added: “We are delighted to join the Sleeper Media portfolio. This partnership will allow us to continue supporting our clients in the growth of their businesses, with our focus on providing information and news via our database subscription service and online news platform.

“We are currently working on a range of enhancements and improvements to THP which will make it a more powerful tool to enable the industry to track all hotel projects in the pipeline worldwide, and to identify the people working on them. The first phases of these developments will be rolled out in early 2023. Exciting times are ahead.”
