At the end of last year we were delighted to announce that the BHBiz Awards would be held at the Amex Stadium in Brighton. We are aware that some members were, like us, disappointed initially that we were not able to find a suitable venue in Mid Sussex, and we thought it might be helpful to explain the rationale behind our decision.
As we started planning the awards, we searched for a venue that met all our criteria – prestige, easy accessibility, good parking facilities and large enough to accommodate – and cater for – 250 people! After visiting many possible venues in Mid Sussex we soon realised that there was not a suitable one in the local area.
Brighton & Hove Albion are members of the BHBPA and the Mayo Wynne Baxter Suite met all our exacting requirements and budget. We’re very excited to host our inaugural awards there on 5 May – and we thank our many sponsors who have made this possible.
We have to date sold over 220 tickets, but they are still available,, so don’t delay – contact: firstname.lastname@example.org today!
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
"Since joining BHBPA we have found it to be a dynamic and vibrant members’ organisation, with excellent, regular and informative meetings.
