Between 13 October and the end of November, the Devonshire Park Centre will host six events, including the British Cheerleading Association, which brings its Southern Classic Competition to Eastbourne for the first time.

This two-day event will bring 1,000 competitors and 2,000 spectators.

Eastbourne Borough Council Cabinet spokesperson for tourism, Cllr Neil Stanley, said: "We already have a series of major events throughout the summer, but the addition of back-to-back conferences during the shoulder months is great news for our accommodation providers and a welcome boost to the town’s economy."

Other events during October and November include Rotary 1130, Rotary 1140 and Rotary 1120 bringing 2,000 delegates, Mission Worship bringing 1,200 delegates and Spring Harvest bringing another 1,000.

Elsewhere, Eastbourne Conference Bureau has reported 15 confirmed bookings for next year.
