Organisers have announced that Sleep & Eat 2020, Europe’s leading design and innovation event for the hospitality sector, will take place in an all virtual format this year.

The design event, which has been running for 15 years, will this year take place online between the 3rd and 5th November 2020.

In a recent statement, Sleep & Eat organisers also revealed that the event will be co-located virtually with Decorex, Europe’s leading event for interior design professionals, for the first time this year. It is anticipated that the co-location will offer new opportunities for both events, expanding the audiences, sourcing and networking opportunities, and diversifying the scope of thought leadership.

Mark Gordon, Event Director, said: 'For the industry to bounce back quickly there is a real need for us to come together in 2020 and discuss our future. There is still a huge desire for the industry to be united, to be inspired, share knowledge, and spark planned and ad-hoc conversations. Sleep & Eat Virtual will give all the opportunity to achieve this and we are very excited.'
