The flexible space, large enough to host 400 theatre style on each floor or four sessions of 200 was previously accessed only by its own street entrance, with no direct link to the main building, but through the improvement works will now have a fully accessible dedicated entrance from the main building directly into the Syndicate Wing’s foyer. This will ensure quicker and faster entry for delegates and will improve the flow of traffic through the Centre.
“The investment we are making to enhance the Brighton Centre continues,” says Howard Barden, Head of Tourism and Venues. “We are constantly striving to improve the delegate experience, taking on board feedback from event organisers in the process. These latest works are another important step forward for the Brighton Centre and part of an on-going development programme following our major refurbishment last year.”
The recent £1million refurbishment of the Brighton Centre has completely revitalised the facility as a major conference venue. The Brighton Centre’s foyer has been extended, and thanks to the use of floor-to-ceiling windows here and in the main restaurant, the space has been transformed with ambient light flooding in and a fresh panoramic perspective over the Brighton seafront.
Other improvements include 4,450 comfortable, new seats in Auditorium 1, the refurbishment of Auditorium 2, better equipped and re-decorated meeting facilities and break out rooms throughout the Centre alongside new signage, furnishings and fittings which create a fresh and vibrant new look. The Brighton Centre also offers delegates free wi-fi access via a building wide, business class 802.11g/n dual band wireless network linked to a 30Mbps leased line fibre internet connection.
