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: email@example.com today!
"Regular, well organised events, excellent updates and information by email along with a warm welcome from the Chair and Coordinator are just some of the positives at BHBPA."
"“I have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.
It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"
"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
