    On July 18, Hotel Designs will bring the successful networking concept of ‘Meet Up’ up North to Manchester…

    There are just three days left in order to secure your place at Meet Up North, the UK’s leading networking event for hoteliers, architects, interior designers and key-industry suppliers.

    In the heart of Manchester, King Street Townhouse, which The Telegraph concluded it was “like staying with a rich friend who has extremely good taste”, has been chosen to shelter the Northern soiree. “Manchester, for many reasons, is a hive for hotel design,” said Hamish Kilburn, editor of Hotel Designs. “In particular, with its outstanding terrace on the sixth floor, King Street Townhouse aligns perfectly to our networking event Meet Up North.”

    Located within the upper King Street Conservation Area of Manchester city centre, the hotel is an impressive 1870s Italian renaissance building, designed by local architect Edward Salomons for the Manchester Salford Trustees Bank. In 2016, AEW Architects, who will be at the networking event this week, converted the building from an office into the high-end 40-bedroom boutique hotel that stands proud over the city today.

    Speaking at Meet Up North will be Fiona Thompson, Principal of Richmond International. Thompson will be sharing her thoughts on past projects, future predictions and the value of collaboration.

    Completing the line-up of speakers will be the headline sponsors of the event, Marca Corona, which will provide the audience with an in-depth industry insight and will be available to answer questions after.
