Manchester comes alive for Meet Up North 2019

Last night, industry leaders gathered at Manchester’s Hotel Gotham for Hotel Designs’ premium northern networking evening, Meet Up North 2019…  

More than 120 designers, hoteliers, developers, architects and key-industry suppliers gathered last night at Hotel Gotham in Manchester’s exclusive private member’s bar, Club Brass, for Meet Up North, Hotel Designs’ premium northern networking event. Using the city below as its backdrop, Hotel Designs took over the rooftop bar to prove that Manchester is a thriving hotel design hotspot.

The event, which was sponsored by Hamilton Litestat, Architextural and Atlas Concorde, returned to Manchester for the second time in a row as a result of the city’s bustling and constantly evolving hotel design scene.

“It’s no surprise or secret that Manchester is a hive of hotel development activity,” said Hamish Kilburn, editor of Hotel Designs. “This creative hub is certainly leading a clear innovative path by opening quality, dynamically designed hotels in the north.”

Delivering a presentation entitled “Hospitality is way more than hotels”, Tom Lindblom, hospitality leader and Principal at Gensler gave the audience an insightful look into how modern hotel exteriors and interiors are changing.

Ending the evening with a apt glimpse into the future, Hotel Designs announced that The Brit List, the publication’s annual awards ceremony, is back this year. “Nominations, which are free to apply, have opened,” Kilburn added. “One element that we believe sets us aside from any other awards ceremony, that we are aware of, is that The Brit List is completely free to apply. Anyone – hotelier, architect, interior designer, developer or supplier can nominate anyone they feel is deserving.”
