The first edition of the Night-Time Industries Association (NTIA) Night-Time Economy (NTE) Summit has been confirmed to take place from 7 to 8 April 2022 in conjunction with Bristol Nights and Savenightlife.

The summit, which is to be held at the Bristol Beacon in Bristol, aims to bring the sector together to collectively debate, as well as share experiences, and to give businesses the opportunity to reset, reflect and work from ground zero to effect change for a better future.

NTIA CEO Michael Kill said: “At this point we felt it vitally important we benchmark this moment with a summit, where our community can come together, some to meet for the first time outside of their virtual realm, an opportunity for operators, regulators, creators, entrepreneurs to come together and share, learn and build a stronger, more resilient industry for the future."

Amazing talent

The hospitality sector has suffered greatly over the last two years, with many businesses and livelihoods lost, but even in the face of adversity and despite being at the sharpest end of the pandemic, the industry has emerged with a renewed sense of community, resilience, and an ability to adapt and overcome any crisis together.

To celebrate this resilience, the two-day event will include panels and workshops with over 100 speakers including Sacha Lord (night time economy advisor Greater Manchester); Philip Kolvin QC; Mark David’s (Music Venue Trust); Mike Grieve (Sub Club); Steve Braines (He.She.They); Brandon Block (DJ); Rob Masterson (Mustard Media); Maria May (CAA); Katy Ellis (Anglo Management); Peter Marks CEO (Rekom); Clare O’Neill (Greener Festivals); Steve Alton (BII); Ariel Palitz (NYC Nightlife Advisor) and Lutz Leichsenring (Vibe Lab).

NTE adviser Bristol Carly Heath said: “We have a phenomenal history of night culture across the West Country, with some amazing talent, events and venues throughout.

Extremely excited 

“Bristol is renowned for its musical diversity and sound system culture, so it seems quite right that we celebrate this alongside the NTIA and Savenightlife this year. We are extremely excited to welcome the industry from across the UK as part of the summit. “
