Why not have the best of both? Why not Brighton for your next event?

Better still; why not take it to the world’s tallest moving observation tower, the British Airways i360?

Not only will this engage your delegates instantly, it will leave them with a lasting memory.

Located right on the sea front of Brighton you will find the world’s tallest moving observation tower, the British Airways i360.

On first impression this stunning structure truly has the ‘Wow Factor’, I couldn’t wait to experience it.

Upon arriving at the ‘check-in desk’, you are treated as if you are boarding an aeroplane. There were security checks before being issued with a ‘Boarding Pass’ detailing the flight times – it was both quirky and special.

Once boarded, the glass pod gently glides guests up to an impressive 450ft! The ‘flights’ last around 25 minutes where you can take in the views across Brighton, Hove and the beautiful Sussex Coastline which are simply breath-taking.

The pod itself can accommodate up to 175 people for exclusive use and you can enjoy a drink on the pod’s ‘in flight’ Sky Bar, Nyetimer which serves locally produced drinks including a delicious award winning English sparkling wine. The pod is also heated and air conditioned for all year comfort.

Once you and your guests have enjoyed a drinks reception on board, you can take your guests for a sumptuous dinner at one of the flexible spaces located down on the beach building.

There are nine flexible meeting spaces and the two largest, Attenburgh and Birch, open out onto a gorgeous private seafront terrace – something really special on a beautiful night overlooking the sunset.

All rooms have natural daylight with flexible dividers to cater for different size groups with a maximum capacity of 1,100 for a standing drinks reception and 290 for seated dinner.

What’s more, the rooms are a blank canvas and can be adapted to pretty much anything you want for all you with creative minds.

The British Airways i360 is a great place for your next product launch, drinks and canapé reception or maybe a summer party with a BBQ and cocktails?

Only a 5 minute drive from the train station, or for those more energetic a 15 – 20 minutes’ walk and just 40 minute drive from Gatwick Airport, Brighton really is easily accessible. There is also a direct train from Gatwick to Brighton every 10 minutes taking around 25 - 30 minutes.
