Meet Up North 2019: Manchester venue announced

Hotel Designs has announced that it is taking its successful Meet Up networking event concept to Manchester’s Hotel Gotham on July 1, 2019… 

Following the success of Meet Up London last week, Hotel Designs has announced that its Meet Up North networking event will take place at Manchester’s Hotel Gotham on July 1.

Leading designers, architects, hoteliers and key-industry suppliers are expected to gather at the hotel’s exclusive members-only rooftop bar, Club Brass, for drinks and canapés above the city.

The VIP lounge on the 7th floor of the hotel was chosen as the venue for Meet Up North after editor Hamish Kilburn described Hotel Gotham as Manchester’s decadent playground in his interactive hotel review that was published last year.

“If Hotel Gotham is the King of King Street, then Brass is the jewel in the crown,” says Hotel Gotham on its website when describing the members-only rooftop bar.

“We have decided to return to this vibrant city, which is full of raw creativity at every corner, due to popular demand in addition to the recent increase in hotel investment in the city, especially in the luxury market.” – Hamish Kilburn, editor, Hotel Designs.

“There is arguably no greater venue that is more relevant for this year’s Meet Up North event than Hotel Gotham,” Kilburn commented on the announcement. “With the hotel group imminently about to expand its luxury arm even further in Manchester, with the highly anticipated opening of The Brooklyn, Hotel on the cards, Hotel Gotham shelters everything and more we need in order to make this event the best Meet Up North yet. We have decided to return to this vibrant city, which is full of raw creativity at every corner, due to popular demand in addition to the recent increase in hotel investment in the city, especially in the luxury market.”

Suppliers: £99 + VAT (£150 + VAT after early bird offer expires after April 30).

Hotel Designs launches into a stylish new era at Meet Up London 2019

Hotel Designs launches into a stylish new era at Meet Up London 2019

The hotel design industry’s finest gathered at Minotti London last night for Meet Up London, Hotel Designs’ first networking event of 2019, which unveiled many causes for celebrations…

London was at the centre of the design world once more last night, as hundreds of designers, architects, hoteliers and key-industry suppliers descended on city’s Fitzrovia district for Meet Up London.

Providing the perfect stage for Hotel Designs’ first networking event of the year, Minotti London opened its showroom doors to the sea of leaders and visionaries who attended the event.

Among the guests were young designers, directors and principals from studios such as Richmond International, Conran & Partners, WATG, Jestico + Whiles, ARA Design, Scott Brownrigg, Gensler and many more.

Unique to this year’s format, Meet Up London hosted the final of Hotel Designs’ 30 Under 30 initiative. All 40 shortlisted finalists were invited, courtesy of Hotel Designs, following the title’s aim to help bridge the age gap in international hotel design. “Tonight’s concept, and its very important theme, has evolved in order to make our networking events more relevant to our audience,” said editor Hamish Kilburn who made the sofas of Minotti his stage for the evening. “Since the success of The Brit List 2018 Awards last year, we have decided to lightly theme each of our networking events. Tonight, it is about celebrating and profiling young designers and architects who are proving themselves to be true leaders in the making, if not so already.”

Following the unveiling of the final 30 Under 30, the evening’s programme gave guests a sneak peek of Hotel Designs’ new branding and website ahead of its highly anticipated launch that was announced today. “I am delighted that we are turning this page so publically here this evening in order to start our new chapter.” explained Kilburn. “Our new slogan is: ‘Defining the point on international hotel design,’ and we believe that events like these that are attended by so many of you, our readers, do just that.”

Meet Up London continued with an engaging talk from the London School of Architecture’s Director of Critical Projects, James Soane. Aptly entitled Repairing The Future, Soane’s presentation captured the audience’s attention and imagination into understanding how we can, as a collective creative industry, design and build better cities and hotels. “Are you doing what you believe in and are you practicing what you preach” Soane asked the audience. “Or are you just preaching what you would like to practice? Design can make the world a better place. It has a lot to do with equality and the future.”

Attendees were then able to use the evening as a networking event to catch up with like-minded industry experts, while also learning about the latest products on the market from suppliers such as Hamilton Litestat (exclusive headline partner), Tarkett (event partner), Minotti London (style partner), Crosswater, Brintons, Laufen and many more.

Ensuring that no guest left empty handed, gifting partner Aslotel supplied all attendees with a generous goody bag that included a selection of its luxury amenity products.

The full gallery of the evening – and the details for Hotel Designs’ next networking event, Meet Up North – will be announced shortly.

Hamilton at the Independent Hotel Show

Exhibiting at the Independent Hotel Show for the first time, British electricals designer and manufacturer Hamilton Litestat will be demonstrating its vast range of luxury products and new technologies to enhance the hotel guest experience at the must-attend show, held on 18-19 October 2016 at Olympia West in London.

In such a fast-paced culture, consumers are continually seeking innovative technologies and the highest levels in comfort and style: it can be extremely difficult and costly for independent hoteliers to keep up with the latest demands. Hamilton will showcase its cutting-edge technologies and chic products that deliver the latest functionality cost effectively for the boutique and independent hotel sector.

Smart controls deliver huge experiential impact but can actually save a hotelier money. Get inspired by the Hamilton’s Mercury Lighting Control system at the Independent Hotel Show. The Mercury system can be used to deliver appropriate mood lighting schemes at the flick of a switch or touch of a button while also achieving significant cost and energy savings of up to 80%.

The latest development in lighting control is the RGB DMX option, where a colour-wash can be used as accent lighting to add drama to a space. – ideal for use in guest rooms, bars and restaurants. Matching control plates are available from the Hamilton collections for that totally coordinated look.

Also on show is Hamilton’s Mercury Multi-Room Audio System, which allows guests to listen to their own music effortlessly via USB and/or Bluetooth connections throughout their suite. Audio can be isolated to one area or can be played through all of the room’s speakers, again at the touch of a button.

Both the lighting and audio systems can be controlled via Hamilton’s vast portfolio of switch plates and ‘key card switch’ systems, which can be effortlessly programmed to activate specific pre-set lighting scenes as well as control other room functions such as air conditioning, blinds and entertainment centres.

Hamilton’s coordinating socket plates will also be on show, including the latest USB charging options and international sockets. There’s a design and finish to suit every taste, with a special bespoke service available to create a solution that’s tailor-made to your exact requirements.

Visit Hamilton on Stand 261 at the Independent Hotel Show to get inspiration and see how the latest products and technologies can enhance your guest experience.
