Organised by industry-leading publication Sleeper, AHEAD is the leading Awards for Hospitality Experience and Design, celebrating the best new hotels across four regional annual awards programmes in Asia, the Americas, the Middle East & Africa (MEA), and Europe.

Once this year's regional winners have been announced, the very first AHEAD 100 list will be unveiled; our new annual list showcasing the best new hotels in the world. A judging panel - comprising architects, interior designers, hoteliers, and industry commentators from across the globe - will then decide the final 10 best-of-the-best, before selecting the winner of the Ultimate Accolade, announced on 20 November.
