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 the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
""BHBPA is a really well organised and run group, great for networking and benefitting from knowledgeable local speakers with real business insight. Peter brings enthusiasm and humour which helps drive the association forward. I am glad to be part of it.""
"“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! ” "
