What can you expect?
Sleep & Eat has been running for the last 15 years, and its organisers do not plan on stopping now. Promising to provide a virtual destination for industry experts to network and learn, this will be the first all-virtual format using video meetings and virtual tours.
Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from experts in the hospitality and design industry, catch up with other Designers, listen to thought leaders, and experience 360 interactive tours that would have usually been experienced by attendees in person.
As Sleep & Eat is one of the most popular events in the Design calendar, we advise taking some time to register, browse, and make a list of the online talks, tours and workshops that you want to attend. There is so much to choose from, and we have already picked out a few of our favourites.
