Topical events, debates and more..
Lively, topical and challenging
Come to a topical event to find out what’s happening in our city, get help with issues that are relevant to your business, and meet other business leaders to discuss relevant issues. Our topical events include Q&As, one-hour lunchtime sessions run by experts on subjects that are relevant to your business. At The Big Debate we discuss the topics important to Brighton and local businesses. Or, are you a leader in construction and property? Construction Voice looks at the latest issues that will affect our city’s skyline.
And our largest event of the year, Brighton Summit, offers unrivalled opportunities to connect, learn, and network.
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.
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.
