The venue, which was designed by the London Eye architects, will feature a dedicated event space with a range of meeting rooms, the largest of which will accommodate up to 1,000 guests.

Brighton i360 will also have the world’s first vertical cable car and the world’s tallest moving observation tower, both of which are due to open in 2016. Event guests will be able to travel 450 feet in a futuristic glass viewing pod, with 360-degree views of the beach and neighbouring towns. Available for private hire for up to 200 delegates, the pods can be tailored to event organisers’ requirements with food and beverage options available. 

A 1866 toll booth, restored by the Brighton i360 team, is also available to hire for private dining and receptions in the evening, accommodating up to 58 for a reception or 16 seated for dinner.

Inside, the venue will be able to cater for full banquets, private dining, drinks and canapé receptions, with menus created by MasterChef: The Professionals winner, Steven Edwards, who is working in partnership with the venue’s caterer Centerplate.

Eleanor Harris, CEO of Brighton i360, said the venue was not only unique, but energy efficient. "We are aiming to set a new global benchmark in sustainability. We are a 100% green energy venue and even generate green energy as the pod descends. We serve locally sourced food and our building is designed to be energy efficient," she added.
