Organised by industry-leading publication Sleeper, AHEAD is the Awards for Hospitality Experience and Design. The series comprises four regional annual awards programmes concluding in a global finale.

AHEAD celebrates the achievements of those shaping the hospitality industry across Asia, the Americas, MEA and Europe, before the regional winners go head-to-head at AHEAD Global to establish an ultimate winner in each category.

Our regional judging panels - comprised of architects, interior designers, hoteliers and industry commentators - follow a carefully developed judging process to ensure a rigorous and balanced approach. The criteria for success is based not only on creative excellence but on commercial viability.

Entries for AHEAD's 2023 series open on Wednesday 25 January. To learn more, download our entry checklist and select a region from the dropdown menu above to get started.
