AHEAD, the Awards for Hospitality Experience and Design, organised by Sleeper Media and supported by Global Founder Sponser, Grohe, is now accepting entries.

The awards cover a range of categories, with F&B-related ones including Bar, Club or Lounge and Restaurant.

In order to be eligible, submitted projects must be located in the Europe region and have opened or reopened between June 2019 and May 2020.

Entries are created online via the AHEAD website and entrants have until Friday 29 May to make submissions.

Last year’s winners include Soho House Amsterdam, which won the Bar, Club or Lounge category; and Neni at 25Hours Hotel Terminus Nord, Paris, which won for Restaurant.

After being carefully selected by an expert panel of judges, the winners will be announced at the AHEAD Europe ceremony, taking place on Wednesday 18 November at Exhibition London.

The results will also be published across AHEAD and Sleeper’s websites and will feature in our digital media partner’s website and newsletter, Dezeen Daily.

Tickets for the ceremony will be available soon.

AHEAD covers four regions: Asia, Americas, Middle East and Africa (MEA), and Europe. An annual awards scheme will take place in each region throughout 2019 and 2020. The awards will culminate in an AHEAD Global event set to take place in 2021, which will see the winners of the eight regional heats compete head-to-head to decide a worldwide winner in each category.
