Brighton has won new conference business worth an estimated £8m to the local economy.

The Brighton Centre has secured a two-year deal to host the Public and Commercial Service (PCS) union's annual conference in 2010 and 2011.

The UK's fifth-largest trade union expects both conferences to attract more than 1,000 delegates to a week-long programme.

Visit Brighton convention bureau manager Julia Gallagher said: "In a difficult economic climate, it is rewarding to see that the city is not only winning business but rebooking them too. We understand the importance of such events to the city - that's why we work so hard to make Brighton & Hove so attractive, accessible and competitive for organisers."
