The Economic Partnership and the local authority hosted a morning of filming highlighting the development of the city’s inward investment website for BBC’s South East Today programme.
Steve Rayson – MD of e-learning company Kineo – was interviewed as an example of a successful company started in Brighton a few years ago and now employing 200 people worldwide with offices in China, America, South Africa and Israel. About 7% of all the e-learning in the UK is generated in Brighton & Hove.

The BBC also filmed Cllr. Geoffrey Bowden talking about the Prospectus at One Gloucester Place which has benefitted from major refurbishment to deliver a modern, BREEAM “very good”, Grade A office block from the original 1980s building and is now over 50% let [see earlier story].

Filming was also conducted on Block J of the new England Quarter – the final part of the NEQ development which will shortly become 3,500 sq metres of office space, a 98 room boutique hotel and 147 homes.
The City Prospectus is being developed jointly by the Economic Partnership and the City Council working with a small steering group of interested parties and consultants This Is Regeneration. The website forming part of the Prospectus is expected to be launched in September.
The BBC film will be shown on Tuesday 3rd July at 18.30
