Michael Kill

CEO, Night Time Industry Association

With several decades of experience working within independent, corporate and public sector environments at executive level, I specialise in Marketing, Operations, Licensing, Logistics and System Implementation. With significant senior management roles within Luminar Leisure Plc, The Drinks Group and the University of East Anglia and now as the Chief Executive of the Night Time Industries Association have been exposed to a considerable range of businesses within the night time economy business sector.

I have been involved within many high level initiatives both within local and national government, alongside key stakeholders. Many of my roles within this industry have involved the facilitation of best practise for independants and multi site operators of venues, bars and pubs, with more recent experiences working very closely with festivals and live venues in shaping operational efficiencies and best practise on a regional level in conjunction with the Police and Local Authorities.

Within my role as Commercial Director at the University of East Anglia I was seconded to the Central Office of National Union of Students (NUS) where I was responsible for the restructuring of their Procurement Strategy for all licensed premises for their University retail sites across the country.

I have been responsible for several multi business procurement contracts with international retail suppliers which have generated circa £50M plus in listing merchandise and retrospective agreements. I have also been fundamental to the roll out of a national music event strategy for the largest late night entertainment multi venue operator in Europe.

I have worked closely with a considerable number of artists and music brands in developing bespoke shows for both stand alone events and larger scale festivals across the UK and still maintain a strong relationship and excellent reputation within the industry as an operator, promoter and procurement specialist.
