Brighton wins Summer Eventia conference

City beats competition to host annual C&I industry gathering

Eventia today announced that its annual Summer Eventia conference will take place in Brighton between 5-7 July 2009.

Brighton was chosen following a tendering process, which involved bids from a number of venues and destinations. The venue for the conference will be announced shortly.

"We are delighted to be holding our 2009 conference in Brighton, the first time that we've taken the event to a seaside resort destination," said Eventia CEO Izania Downie.

"Brighton has demonstrated a very successful track record in hosting association conferences and conventions, and we have every confidence that the venue and destination, working in close partnership with Eventia's conference planning team, will enable us to deliver an enjoyable, professional and must-attend event."

Julia Gallager, convention bureau manager for Visit Brighton, added: "We are really pleased to have been selected as the host destination for this major industry event, and look forward to showcasing all that the city has to offer."

Last year's event attracted 250 attendees to The Lowry Hotel in Manchester.
