About the Brighton Summit

The Brighton Summit is an annual conference that brings together our city’s diverse business community for a day of ideas and action. And when a community like ours comes together, great things happen.

In 2016, we spent time exploring our business desires, challenging ourselves to meet our dreams and being inspired to create new ones. We talked about vision and success, challenge and risk. We left with ideas, contacts and strategies for turning desire into growth.

The 2017 Brighton Summit

This year, our theme “Embracing the unknown” reflects the uncertainty affecting all of our businesses following the upheaval of the last 12 months. It’s a time when many of us have been waking at 3am thinking, “WTF?” But it’s a time for optimism too – a chance to do things differently and seek new opportunities. The 2017 summit will leave you feeling ready to seize the moment and make the most of the challenges that lie ahead.

As its title suggests, this year’s Brighton Summit will help ease you out of your comfort zone – just a few steps at a time.

Expect extraordinary speakers, practical workshops and things you never thought you’d see at a business conference.
