From Brighton with Love – EU transition and exporting support for small businesses
From Brighton with Love is a business support programme designed to help your business with importing and exporting, including a series of expert panel events, Your Questions Answered sessions, and Export Leaders peer network sessions. The programme focuses on topics including exporting and importing, supply chains, employment issues post-Brexit and more. It’s practical support, delivered by people who are already doing it well.
For more information and to book any of the sessions visit the Chamber event page.
The Brighton Summit every October is a conference bringing together our city’s diverse business community for a day of inspiring talks, practical workshops and new experiences.
The number and the quality of the people you’ll meet means the networking is off the scale. The vibe is exciting, the mood is collaborative and the food is wonderful. It’s the most productive and beneficial day you’ll spend out of the office all year.
Brighton Base Camp
The younger sibling of Brighton Summit, Base Camp is a large-scale virtual event that brings together 200 businesses and entrepreneurs from across the city's diverse business community for a morning of inspiring speakers, expert-led workshops and structured networking sessions. It's an event for strengthening relationships, forging new ones, and celebrating the spirit of our open-minded, quirky city.

Construction Voice brings together leaders from the construction and property sector to provide insights and discuss topics such as planning, viability, talent, design and sustainability. Held both online and in-person, our panel and discussion events attract 80+ attendees.
"The Construction Voice events have covered a wide range of topics and have been invaluable in helping to connect the Property and Construction industries to the wider issues affecting the city. It's been great to be involved and help frame the discussion on how we can work together to improve our city." - Gavin Stewart, Executive Director, Brighton & Hove Economic Partnership
Have a constructive say on the issues that matter to you and your business and be heard by the city's movers and shakers.

The Big Debate
Lively, topical and challenging, Big Debates attract more than 100 people from the businesses, charity, corporate and public sectors. It’s a chance to hear an expert panel address key issues facing businesses in the city – and maybe influence the decisions they make too.
The interactive format works for virtual and in person events, allowing time for table discussion with other attendees. We record the outputs from attendees, summarise them and share them with the decision makers in the city to help inform their work.
