Activity: #NoSleepTilAustin: A Road Trip to Better Sleep
On Friday, March 9, Philips brought together influencers from all over the world to harness the energy, excitement and drama of life on the road during an unforgettable four-night journey with 8 strangers as they ask “what happens when you don’t get enough sleep?” These “roadies” went on tour from LA to Austin, discussing their views on sleep while learning the ways that Philips is committed to making life better by empowering the world to get a good night’s sleep along the way.
The tour culminated in one epic night of sleep at the 8-hour, overnight concert by internationally-renowned composer Max Richter, as he celebrated the US launch of his album, Sleep,at SXSW in Austin Texas on March 12. In amplifying the critical importance of restful sleep to the entire world, Max Richter’s 8-hour lullaby was composed alongside neuroscientists to aid relaxation, mediation and sleep.
Beyond raising awareness through education about the importance of sleep, Philips is innovating sleep solutions rooted in clinical evidence and technical data that work together to promote better health – from clinical solutions designed to better manage sleep apnea, to modern technology designed to help people start their days naturally.
