VisitBrighton talks shop at international trade show today

Besi Besemar March 19, 2013

VisitBrighton Convention Bureau, an organisation promoting Brighton & Hove as a place to hold meetings, conferences and business events, will be using the city’s independent credentials to theme its exhibition stand at industry trade show International Confex at the London ExCel Centre from March 19–March 21.

Brighton boasts over 500 independent retailers within a half-mile radius, including boutiques and quirky shops. To reflect the vibrant and innovative nature of the city, the bureau has created a conference supplies store as part of their stand, featuring branded goods from some of the city’s independent retailers, giving their stand a real Brighton twist!

Geoffrey Bowden, Brighton & Hove City Council’s Chair of Economic Development and Culture Committee, said:

“This is a great concept and a brilliant example of one of the ways VisitBrighton works with partner businesses to promote the best of the city. Conference business brings economic benefit to Brighton & Hove year-round and we wish the VisitBrighton team and partners all the best in their endeavours at Confex.”

The Green administration has plans to close the main tourist information centre next to the Royal Pavilion in Brighton to save money.

VisitBrighton will be at stand K641.
