Following the energy of MEET UP London, which took place just two months prior, MEET UP North 2022 took shelter underground, in The Storehouse at Whitworth Locke. The theme of the night was ‘development in the North’ in line with the Manchester – and other Northern hotspots, such as Edinburgh, Glasgow, Liverpool, Leeds and Birmingham – being hives of hotel development.

Hotel Designs’ leading networking event kickstarted the day with an exclusive panel discussion, which will be available to watch, in full, on demand shortly, between leading designers who explored together creative opportunities outside the capital.

Following this, more than 150 designers, architects, hoteliers, developers and suppliers arrived for an evening of premium networking. “It’s so important for Hotel Designs to host networking events in territories where innovation and creativity flourishes,” said Katy Phillips, Publisher, Hotel Designs. “This is our third MEET UP North event in Manchester, a city that is ever-evolving while also progressively getting louder year-on-year on the hotel design scene. Whitworth Locke, our venue for MEET UP North 2022, is a shining example of a hospitality offering that is embracing the city’s vibe while also giving locals and travellers something they have perhaps not experienced before in Manchester.”

Here are the official images from the night.

The next major networking event, brought to you exclusively by Hotel Designs, is The Brit List Awards 2022. Nominations/applications will open on June 27 and will close on August 19. The awards ceremony – open to all to attend – will take place on November 2.
