Conference Overview

We’re excited to be in Brighton which seems to be booming at present. There’s a real buzz around the area of Brighton, Hove and Sussex – with a lot of inward investment conversations happening, whilst developers and investors have started to move out of London with Brighton an attractive location. We’ll be hearing about some of the ongoing and future development projects which could be happening in Brighton and the further Sussex region with speakers including:

  • Max Woodford; Assistant Director for City Development and Regeneration at Brighton & Hove City Council. He’ll be giving an overview of the exciting developments set to happen in the City – from infrastructure projects to development zones and areas highlighted for regeneration and more.
  • Barry Jessup; Director at First Base. They’ve developed a real reputation for delivering innovative buildings and Barry will share their ongoing and future pipeline developments. They’ve recently moved into Brighton with a planned residential development at Anston House and a planned transformation of Edward Street Quarter.
  • Martin Perry; Chief Executive at Brighton and Hove Albion FC. As a Premier League club Brighton and Hove Albion are set to invest further into their training facilities and stadium – whilst they’re also looking to engage with developers and investors around the potential to develop on land they own around the AMEX Stadium
  • Ross Gilbert; Managing Director at QED. They’re a development company focused on the transformation of brownfield sites through traditional urban regeneration and interim time-based projects and have been prolific in Brighton and Sussex in recent years. They’ll be talking about their future developments and how you can get involved.

We hope to be in a position to confirm additional speakers soon.
