How to plan meetings, conferences and training days in Brighton

How to plan meetings, conferences and training days in Brighton

1 June 2018

Are you a business that has a requirement for a regular training or meeting venue? If so, it’s likely that you have a list of your ‘fail safe’ questions ready to ask any conference centre. Maybe you’ve had a bad experience in the past, or that in order for the training, meeting or conference to be successful you need to use a venue that’s focused on the little things too.

Your questions to a venue provider may include:

  • Can you cater for my numbers?
  • Is there flexibility with catering arrangements?
  • Is there a choice of food options?
  • Is the venue in an accessible location?
  • Will there be a contact on the day?
  • Can I build up a rapport with the contact and the venue?
  • Will I be able to speak to the same person throughout?

If you’re looking for a conference venue for your training or meetings in Brighton, the Mercure Brighton Seafront Hotel can help. We’re happy to answer all your questions, and more.

Whether you’re looking for a training, meeting or conference venue for 20, 50, or even 100 attendees, we can accommodate you. We can offer flexibility in refreshments, timings, and the type of lunch you may want, from a quick sandwich buffet; hot buffet; or even time to sit in the restaurant and enjoy a meal. We’re able to cater for special dietary requirements too. We will work with you to ensure your delegates or team get the most from their day, right down to breakfast butties and coffee on arrival, through to afternoon tea. After all, they do say that food fuels the brain.

With fresh sea air on the doorstep, the hotel is the ideal location to host your training, meeting or business conference.

With years of experience helping meeting and events go smoothly, we’ll ensure the room and catering is covered, so you can focus on the content of the training course, meeting or conference.

“I organised a conference early in 2018 at the Mercure Brighton Seafront Hotel and can only commend them on the way they welcomed us as a great. I had regular interaction with Antonio De Aguiar, and we kept each other informed of progress, the whole way through the booking process. They extended deadlines for us where necessary, for which I was very grateful – scientists have a habit of booking very late for conferences!  During the conference the staff couldn’t do enough for us; food was fantastic, and the whole experience was a very pleasant one. Our delegates certainly thought so, and want to come back for that particular conference to Brighton when it returns to the UK. In fact, based on that experience, I will be holding another conference there in November 2018, and already plans are moving along very smoothly – can’t wait!”
