Brighton & Hove Chamber of Commerce is to stage an October 2010 week of events celebrating business in the city, under the banner 'Business by the Sea'.
The events, which are open to owners and managers of any local business, are designed to strengthen the community bonds between businesses while also giving a no-obligation taster of Chamber of Commerce membership.
For four days from 12 October, a variety of daily events will introduce non-members to the Chamber’s advantages. A full calendar can be seen on the Business Forum website by clicking on Events on the menu bar.
Highlights include a networking treasure hunt around central Brighton culminating in lunch; a local issues debate on the question of whether Brighton needs a dedicated business district; and entry for non-members to one of the Chamber’s Friday networking breakfasts at Carluccio’s, in the North Laine area. The breakfast is followed by a ‘group photo’ in Jubilee Square; a surprise event, designed to entertain everyone there. The week kicks off on the social level with a night of cocktails, karaoke and Thai-style nibbles at the karaoke venue Lucky Voice on Black Lion Street.
Chamber president Julia Chanteray said: "Brighton & Hove is one of Britain’s most successful cities for business, which we’re celebrating by offering every business in the city a week-long opportunity to mingle, network, develop new business relationships, debate business issues and let their hair down a bit. It’s an excellent taster for what the Brighton and Hove Chamber of Commerce has to offer throughout the year."
Free Business by the Sea 'passports' which give details of what’s happening and how to reserve places for an event, can be found in most of the city’s business centres and office buildings, as well pubs, bars and restaurants. All events must be booked in advance and some, but not all, may require a small payment.
Bookings may be made at http://www.businessinbrighton.org.uk or by calling Alice on 01273 719097. Early bookings are advised as events are expected to sell out.
