The iconic venue, with its 1930s art deco detail, appealed because of its central city location and variety of facilities, including the foyer bar, reception area and Corn Exchange conference room. The listed building is situated in the Royal Pavilion Gardens and was originally built as the Prince Regent's royal riding house in 1805.

During the event, the 160 delegates were served refreshments in the foyer bar on arrival before registering. All catering was provided by Brighton Dome.

The plenary conference sessions took place in the Corn Exchange, where cabaret-style seating was set up in front of a stage. There were also branded pop-up stands in the room. Following lunch in the foyer bar, the leadership team presented company results and future strategy to the delegates. An awards ceremony was held in the evening, and those who could not travel home afterwards stayed in local hotels.

Emma Holden, Elior UK HR services manager, says: "The team at the Brighton Dome was efficient and accommodating - nothing was too much trouble and they ensured the conference ran smoothly and to schedule. They provided a professional service in a beautiful venue and we would certainly be keen to recommend and re-visit."
