After an excellent response from the visitors, especially mattress retailers, in the previous editions where World of Sleep was launched by ISPF in association with HGH India, the concept will be taken forward in December 2022 edition as well. Next edition will be held from December 13-16 in Mumbai. Experts at World of Sleep will guide on retailers on how the quality of sleep affects our health and how better health can be achieved with better sleep quality.

World of Sleep also imparts knowledge and information on innovations and new trends in products and materials that help achieve better sleep. It will also share research findings on contribution of elements like light, air quality, room temperature, wall colours, aromas & fragrance on quality of sleep. Of course, latest innovations and improvements in the basics of good sleep like bed, mattresses, pillows, bed sheets & comforters will also be highlighted by the experts at World of Sleep.

Speaking on the next edition, S Sundaresan, Secretary, ISPF notes, “The mattress industry is increasingly focussing on the comfort of the customers and promoting good sleep. For that, various innovative products have come to the foray. For example, a new bed sheet is developed that can absorb dust from the air when you switch off the fan or air conditioner, so no separate air cleaner is required for the room. Likewise, many other innovations are taking place.” That said, mattress protectors, mattress covers, good quality bed sheets and pillows among others are all the factors that have a significant effect on the quality of sleep and promote a good sleeping environment. Next edition will see some of these innovative products for display.

Growing consumer awareness on the health benefits of good quality sleep constantly propel innovations. Leading brands like Sleepwell, King Koil, Nilkamal, Centuary, Springfit, Refresh, M.M. Foam and many others will introduce their latest range of mattresses, pillows, beds, comforters. From memory foam, box spring, latex, coir, PU foam in new combinations to many new age synthetic and natural materials like gel, water, air, cotton, wooden springs are now being used to create new experiences in healthy and more comfortable sleep.

A good sleep is the most important part of our life as it promotes good health, yet it is the most neglected aspect. However, gradually, due to growing advocacy and the plethora of information available online, now the awareness about quality sleep is growing at a fast pace. People are increasingly realising the benefits of practicing good sleep hygiene and how it can positively impact their daily lives, notes Sundaresan.

That said, apart from a good sleep hygiene, one thing that still needs more attention and is probably one of the most important aspects for promoting quality sleep and better sleep naturally is the sleep environment.

In fact, it’s better to consider good sleep environment as a long term investment and just like you invest in a new tech gadget to make your life more convenient, you need to invest in a good mattress, pillow, bed sheet and other sleep related things and gadgets to promote good sleep that impacts you overall mental health and physical well-being. So, how do you do that? Well, you can do that by building the right ambience in your bedroom and for that you need to delve deeper into the world of sleep.
