Conveniently located in the buzzy neighbourhood, you can’t get much more central in Manchester than YOTEL Manchester Deansgate. Inside, expect a modern hotel, with innovative design, ethically sound hospitality credentials and a public area that can hold its own when it comes to a networking event like MEET UP North.

The event, which is expected to sell out, will bridge the gap between the community of interior designers, architects, hoteliers, developers and suppliers. In addition to providing a stylish networking arena, MEET UP North will also shelter a meaningful panel discussion on ‘blurring the boundaries between spaces’.

The discussion will explore how interior designers and brands alike are creating cohesive design narratives that flow between all spaces of the hotel. Editor Hamish Kilburn will welcome a handful of interior designers who, together, will discuss how to connect different areas of the hotel seamlessly. The aim of the conversation will be to understand how architectural restrictions and budget limitations – together with the growing demand for adaptive reuse – can become projects’ greatest strength, allowing design to play a major role in defining the hotel and brand’s character .

“We are asking attendees to have an open mind for this year’s edition of MEET UP North,” said Hamish Kilburn, Editor of Hotel Designs. “We always try to do something different, and this year this will include a panel discussion between visionaries that will, if you like, kick away the stabilisers and travel around the venue. We have worked closely with YOTEL to create a conversation that will truly be unlike any other.”

After the early bird promotion ends on May 19, tickets for designers, architects, hoteliers and developers will inflate to £20 + VAT and £150 + VAT for suppliers.

MEET UP North is sponsored by Hamilton Litestat (Headline Partner), YOTEL (Exclusive Style Partner), Hafele (Event Partner), Crosswater (Event Partner), Burlington (Event Partner), Mel Yates (Exclusive videography) and DESIGN POD (Podcast Partner). 

*Buyer tickets are reserved for designers, architects, hoteliers and developers. Anyone else wishing to attend must purchase a supplier ticket. If you would like to discuss sponsorship packages for MEET UP North, please speak to Katy Phillips.
