GET INVOLVED: OPPORTUNITIES FOR BUSINESSES & ORGANISATIONS

The heart of the Brighton and Sussex food, drink and hospitality industry is YOU, the restaurateurs, wine makers, chefs, brewers, growers, producers, retailers, mixologists, distillers and hoteliers of our world-class region.

 

Having worked with hundreds of businesses in the region over the years, we understand not only your marketing and promotional needs but also the on-the-ground challenges of our industry and the complexities of the supply chain that makes Sussex such a special place to live and work. From Covid to Brexit, with so much current uncertainty surrounding food and drink, we're here to help facilitate recovery, resilienceregeneration and the shear relevance of our sectors within Brighton and surrounding Sussex and showcase you nationally and internationally.

We invite you to join us for our next two annual BITE Sussex food and drink festivals in April 2022 and September 2022. We know that our consumer events and business-to-business networking events are two sides of the same coin, so we'll be hosting two producer showcase trade days, two media/industry launches and a host of sector-specific trade activations including the 2nd edition of our 'Sussex Surprise' cocktail competition to connect local distilleries with bartenders and hospitality buyers. We're also proud to be announcing our new Sussex Rising Stars Awards to champion careers and young people in our industry.

Our partner and supporter fees are below. Drop us an email or give us a call on +44 (0)1273 77 00 44 and let's talk!
