*Upcoming Event* The Visitor Economy of the City and Circular Economy

Following the publication of the Brighton & Hove City Council (BHCC) Economic Strategy in December 2018, Circular Brighton & Hove have been working with the council to deliver on its commitment to “Create a Circular Economy (CE) Framework, incorporating Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), for key themes for the Brighton & Hove Region”. Over the last 2 months, through internal BHCC officer and external workshops, we have focussed on two themes, the Built Environment and the Visitor Economy. For the former we held an event on 11th June, in conjunction with the University of Brighton, BHCC and Design Brighton, where over 80 stakeholders explored how to Construct a Circular City.

Our focus is now on “the Visitor Economy of the City and Circular Economy”, the event will be held at the Grade 1 list Royal Pavilion in Brighton, on 31st July (open to all, but focussed on museums, hotels, restaurants and performance and activity spaces) to explore what CE and the Visitor Economy is and how we might be able to plan for the future.

The day will be split into two parts.

Part 1: The Circular Economy and businesses 14.30 - 17.30

Focussed on museums, hotels, restaurants and activity spaces, we will have a couple of key note speakers to explore how the Visitor Economy and CE can be natural bedfellows, followed by workshops

Part 2: Can we ever have sustainable tourism 18.00 - 20.30 - open to all

Panel debate followed by speed network, drinks and nibbles

This is a partnership with Brighton & Hove City Council, Visit Brighton and Brilliant Brighton – the name given to the Brighton BID (Business Improvement District) and Circular Brighton & Hove.
