New boutique design Hotel SP34, part of Brøchner Hotels, has been chosen as the host hotel for the international networking event Sleepover. Already before Hotel SP34 officially opens in early April, it has achieved quite a bit of international attention which is one of the reasons why the new Sleepover-event will be staged in Copenhagen.
On April 27th, 100 of the world’s leading architects and designers of restaurants and hotels will stay at the Hotel SP34 for its annual gathering 'Sleepover' - a networking event arranged by the international hotel magazine ‘Sleeper Magazine’.
Each year hotel architects and designers joining Sleepover visit a new city in order to gain inspiration for their work and spend a night at a new, exciting hotel. Previously, the Sleepover-event has been held in Berlin and Amsterdam, but this year Copenhagen was chosen because of its leading position in architecture, design and gastronomy.
In their reasoning for choosing Hotel SP34 as host hotel, Sleeper Magazine emphasizes the original beauty in the hotel built in three classic houses in Copenhagen’s Latin Quarter. Furthermore, they mention the hotel’s use of furniture by famous Danish architects and its touch of modern, understated luxury.
The event at Hotel SP34 was a result of a meeting in Copenhagen between Matt Turner, the editor in-chief of Sleeper Magazine, and Karim Nielsen, CEO of Brøchner Hotels.
- I’m delighted that our boutique hotel SP34 can help promote Copenhagen as an event city. Certainly it is small event in size, but the attendees set an international agenda when it comes to designing and developing hotels and restaurants and their visit underlines Copenhagen’s reputation as a pioneer within this field, says Karim Nielsen.
Karim Nielsen adds that in connection with the event, Brøchner Hotels will, among many other things, present a chair from 1958 that has not previously been commercially produced designed by the famous Danish furniture designer Hans J. Wegner.
On the agenda at the Sleepover-event is, among other things, a visit to Nordic Food Lab, Kødbyen (Copenhagen’s Meat Packing District) and Torvehallerne (Market Halls), a canal tour arranged by Wonderful Copenhagen as well as dinner at the new Generator Hostel and the a workshop on ‘Tomorrow’s Hotel’.
