Brighton Chamber Publish Full Summit Rundown

Brighton Summit – your guide to the big day

It’s just under two weeks to go until this year’s Brighton Summit on 12 October. Brighton Summit is a conference that brings together our city’s diverse business community for a day of inspiring talks, practical workshops and new experiences.

This year’s theme is Look Up. Look Up means finding opportunities where others see problems. It means engaging with the world – next door, the next community, over the sea – not closing ourselves off.
