    Snoozebox, the award-winning portable hotel company, and Sleep, Europe’s leading hotel design and development event, have announced a collaboration which will give design companies and individuals the chance to put their names in front of the decision makers of the international hotel industry.

    The competition challenges designers to create a concept for a new Snoozebox guestroom where flexibility is key. Within the footprint of an ISO steel shipping container, the high quality, modern en-suite accommodation must equally lend itself to work, rest and play. The winning concept will then be built and revealed at Sleep in London this November.

    The Snoozebox Competition is open to all design companies and designers based in the UK and Europe and involves the design of a floorplan, mood board and a visual. Designers interested in entering the Snoozebox Competition should visit:

    The deadline for entries is Friday 11th September and the winner will be announced on Monday 21st September. The judging panel will include directors from Snoozebox, the organisers of Sleep and Tangerine, the design company that created the first Snoozebox interiors in 2011. The winner will then have the benefit of working with Snoozebox and finding out first-hand what it takes to convert a great concept into reality as well as attending Sleep as a VIP guest. Sleep will take place on 24th – 25th November at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London.

    “Every year, we reach out to more and to different groups of people in our industry. We see the Snoozebox Competition as offering a way for aspiring hotel designers to make their mark without an outlay beyond the power of their imaginations,” explains Kali Nicholson, Brand Director of Sleep. “In this way, it will perfectly complement our very ambitious and eagerly followed Sleep Set Competition where companies are asked to design and build out a much more conceptual space.”

    This will be the second time that Snoozebox’s appearance at Sleep will draw the crowds. Last year, the company revealed the latest version of its guestroom design at Sleep and has since gone on to win the coveted Good Design Awards and become one of just two shortlisted designs in the prestigious international Radical Innovation Awards. Snoozebox has also been named a Bronze winner in the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA)’s 2015 International Design Excellence Awards (IDEA).
