The free breakfast and seminar is planned for 1 May and is designed to generate business event leads to Butlin's newly-improved conference centre. Butlin's Events has joined forces with local business network The Arun Business Partnership to host the businesses.

The event will include a champagne breakfast, with a seminar, entitled 'Butlin's Navigators', which will focus on how Butlin’s owner Bourne Leisure has achieved fourth place in The Sunday Times' 2013 ranking of the 25 'Best Big Companies' to work for.

The 550-delegate conference centre’s main auditorium was renovated in February this year. It has hosted events for companies including Sky, Activision and Waitrose.

Jeremy Pardey, Butlin’s Bognor Regis’s resort director, said: "Our upgrade to the Shoreline Conference Centre represents another step forward as we look to attract events and conferences from both within the UK and abroad, bringing a larger portion of the business tourism economy into the area."
