It isn’t always easy to find ways to network with other like-minded individuals within your industry, however this is becoming far more easier over time, with sites now purely dedicated to event management. If you are interested in meeting other business focused individuals in Brighton then have a read through our list.
Despite whether you are working in digital marketing or simply looking to meet other local businesses, BrightonSEO is one of the greatest free-to-attend events in the UK. It occurs once every six months and attracts over 2,000 people, situated in the Brighton Dome. Hosted by Kelvin Newman, their are three main rooms, so you can pick the subject which interests you the most.
Chamber Breakfast In Carluccio’s
Once a month the Brighton chamber of commerce hold a morning meeting, attracting a vast range of businesses, as they all meet to discuss potential opportunities and key occurrences in the local area. They always have a speaker each time to discuss a set topic, so why not contact beforehand to find out what the talk will be on. Plus, you have the added benefit of the great tasting food at Carluccios.
Juice FM Breakfast Club
Juice 107.2, our local radio station, is the host to a brilliant monthly meetup for local businesses. Occurring on the 3rd Friday of the month, this one does cost £10, however this also comes with a full English breakfast. You can always be assured of a strong presence considering their ability to share details of the event via their radio station.
Brighton Business Curry Club
This one is right up my street, as you can network while enjoying a pint and a curry, two of my favourite things in the world. Now in its new(ish) location, at Bali Brasserie, the Brighton Business Curry Club meeting takes place on the second Tuesday of every month.
Not everyone can take the time out through the day to attend a morning event, or a full day networking event, so evening meetups are a great alternative. If you fall into this bracket, the Brighton Farm New Media Freelancers meetup is ideal. This is also run every week, rather than once a month, and is mainly tailored to people working in technology or with an interest in the field. The atmosphere is very relaxed and friendly, taking place in Hampton pub on Upper North Street.
Friends Of The Albion
This event is a little bit different, it is a great opportunity for people to meet representatives of other businesses in their local area, but it is also a great way to meet other fans of Brighton football club. This meeting occurs on the first Thursday of the month in the morning, between 8:30am and 10:00am.
