Brighton scores new business hat-trick




Three organisations have recently decided to hold their conferences in the southern England coastal resort of Brighton.

Following the announcement of the arrival of meetings and events industry conference the Summer Eventia (5-7 July 09), Brighton will now host events for the mental health charity Mind (25-27 November 2009) and the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (October 2010).
 
The wins span not-for-profit, industry and association sectors, and are expected to deliver over £1 million for the city.
 
“The first quarter of 2009 has started positively and these wins are a great endorsement of Brighton & Hove’s business tourism product,” said Julia Gallagher, VisitBrighton convention bureau manager.

“Both ourselves and our partners are looking forward to welcoming every delegate to Brighton and the arrival of Eventia delegates presents an enormous opportunity for us to showcase the city.
 
“In a tough operating environment, winning three new contracts of this size in the space of a few weeks is a real boost to Brighton. Our new business pipeline is also positive for the remainder of the year and into 2010, with some landmark conference expected to confirm over the next few months.”
