NTIA announce first Night Time Economy Summit 

The first edition of the NTIA Night Time Economy Summit is set to take place from the 7th & 8th April 2022 at Bristol Beacon in conjunction with Bristol Nights & Savenightlife CIC. Night Time Economy businesses across the UK have been at the sharpest end of the pandemic, but throughout this crisis have shown true community spirit. The summit will aim to continue to bring the sector together to collectively debate, as well as share experiences but more importantly give businesses the opportunity to reset, reflect and work from ground zero, and effect change for a better future.

The sector has suffered massively, with many businesses and livelihoods lost, but even in the face of adversity, the industry has emerged with a renewed sense of community, resilience and an ability to adapt and overcome any crisis together.


Says NTIA CEO Michael Kill: “At this point we felt it vitally important that we benchmark this moment with a summit, where our community can come together, some to meet for the first time outside of there 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.”

Carly Heath NTE Advisor Bristol says: “We have a phenomenal history of night culture across the West Country, with some amazing talent, events and venues throughout. Bristol is renowned for its musical diversity and sound system culture, so it seems quite right that we celebrate this alongside the NTIA & Savenightlife this year. We are extremely excited to welcome the industry from across the UK as part of the summit.“


The two day event will include over 100 speakers with panels and workshops featuring innovators and entrepreneurs from across the sector.

Speakers include; Sacha Lord (Night Time Economy Advisor Greater Manchester), Jenni Cochrane (Getahead) Simon Dunmore (CEO Defected),  David Lucas (IOL), Yousef (Circus Records), Philip Kolvin QC, Mark David’s (Music Venue Trust) Mike Grieve (Sub Club), Carly Heath (Night Time Economy Advisor Bristol) Michael Kill CEO (NTIA) 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) Michael Rodriguez (24hr Commissioner NSW) Lutz Leichsenring (Vibe Lab) Julie Tippins (DHP Family).
