Versital Proudly Joins Forces with Concept North

The Northern design sector has been rapidly expanding over recent years, with major new practices and design centres forming in the main cities of the North West. Having met via the social media platform Instagram, designers Natalie Holden and Melinda Kiss felt there was a gap in networking in the North West, with the majority of events being more focused in the South of the UK, mainly in London. Together they joined forces to plug this gap, and Concept North was born.

The next event is to be held on the 30th May at the Opera Grill in Chester. Visit for tickets.

“The events held by Concept North are a great opportunity for designers to not only network, but also exchange ideas and give each other support. The community that emerges from such events will stimulate the sector and help it to reach new heights.” – Gemma Stockberger, Sales and Marketing Director, Versital.

Concept North aims to bring together the various areas of the design and property sectors, holding fun and informal networking events and providing support and opportunities for designers and suppliers.

We absolutely love Versital’s products and ethos and it’s great to be working with a friendly team that share our values and vision for Concept North.” – Natalie Holden, Concept North.

Being a Northern based manufacturer of custom made solid surfaces, Versital is strongly committed to supporting designers and other manufacturers in this sector.
