Conferences and Meetings

A piece of history buzzing with the future, in the heart of a vibrant, creative city. Brighton Dome is the perfect backdrop for conferences seeking to inspire.

From digital conferences, small meetings to large scale association congresses, we have a variety of spaces that can add a little magic when it comes to hosting events that spark passion and creativity

With the welcome return of our Corn Exchange and Studio Theatre, both lovingly renovated to combine iconic architecture with state of the art technology, Brighton Dome offers a range of spaces to satisfy the needs of events and meeting organisers looking for something large scale, but with a creative edge.

As ever, our dedicated in-house team of event producers and technicians will cover every detail and help your event reach the heights it deserves.

'We bring our 1,300 strong audience back to the Brighton Dome every year, because we deeply value the history of the venue and contributions it makes to our City. With an audience our size, we could easily move to a bigger space. However, we would never want to risk losing the rich history and identity that the Brighton Dome adds to our event'
