Sleeper Media, the market-leading publisher and event organiser for the international hospitality design industry, and TOPHOTELPROJECTS GmbH, the leading provider of data, information and news on hotel projects, brands and companies worldwide, have today announced a strategic partnership involving a mutual co-investment in both companies.
Sleeper Media publishes Sleeper Magazine (Global Hotel Design); Supper Magazine (Global Hotel F&B) and Starboard – a new publication for the next generation of cruise ships and mobile hospitality models.
