PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS EVENT HAS NOW TAKEN PLACE
More than 200 of the industry’s leaders and visionaries from within the hotel design gathered on the terrace of King Street Townhouse in Manchester for the first ever Meet Up North on 18 July, 2018.
Sponsored by Marca Corona, the event, which boasted an unparalleled perspective of the Manchester sunset, welcomed hoteliers, architects, interior designers and key-industry suppliers.
Commencing with a short speech from the editor of Hotel Designs, Hamish Kilburn, Meet Up North’s tone of the evening celebrated hotel design in the north, highlighting how design, innovation and creativity in the UK is not limited to London. “This venue is just one shining example of the stunning hotels in the North,” said Editor of Hotel Designs Hamish Kilburn at the event. “Without events like these, the UK as a whole would seriously struggle to be recognised as the international hotel design hot spot that it is today, and will continue to be in the future.”
Putting collaboration in the spotlight, Fiona Thompson, Prinicipal of Richmond International, took the mic as the headline speaker of the evening. Thompson, known in the hotel design industry for working on projects such as The Langham London, Sandy Lane in Barbados and Four Seasons Ten Trinity Square, spoke about past projects and the value of collaboration.
