The 4th Brighton Summit will take place all day on Friday 14th October at the Clarendon Centre, over a series of keynote talks, discussion panels and workshops. This year, 300 business representatives are expected to gather to explore the theme 'Your desires, dreams & real business', what that means to them and how to take their businesses to the next level.
Organised by the Brighton and Hove Chamber of Commerce, the Summit is an annual event that brings together a diverse cross section of the business community in a day that is geared towards helping their businesses move forwards.
