For the third European edition, Sleeper SESSIONS headed to Croatia, Dubrovnik. Combining the ancient architecture of the Old Town with more recent Socialist-era structures elsewhere along the coast, Dubrovnik is now a dynamic tourism destination with a rich and fascinating history.

Our host venue, the Dubrovnik Palace is a luxury property located on the Lapald peninsula, nestled between pine forests and the cobalt waters of the Adriatic.

Symposia speaker sessions welcomed design visionaries and thought-leaders from across the region including Maroje Mrduljas, who set the scene for a compelling programme of Symposia speaker-led sessions and Sustenance elements to nourish mind, body and soul. Dubrovnik-born Marko Dabrović – a founding partner of 3LHD Architects along with hospitality experts from the region, including Una Barac (Atellior), Kristina Zanic (Kristina Zanic Design Consultants) and Tomislav Čeh (Head of Adriatic Sea – PKF).
