Since our conference started to grow we realised that a room above a pub isn’t going to cut it anymore… so we expanded into a multi-track venue within the Brighton Dome complex, rocking out in the Concert Hall, Corn Exchange and Studio Theatre!
This way we can squeeze extra SEO joy into our little city and not so little conference.
The stages in the Corn Exchange and Studio Theatre have a smaller capacity than the Concert Hall (though actually much bigger than most other SEO conferences main stages). This does mean these sessions may be over subscribed.
Brighton Dome is one of the biggest and certainly most iconic venues in Brighton. A couple of the events I’ve attended there recently include Michael McIntyre and ‘Mitchell and Webb’ It’s also the venue where Abba won Eurovision with Waterloo. Right on top of the pavilion, and smack bang in the middle of ‘The Lanes’
Brighton Dome Corn Exchange was built at the same time as the Concert Hall and was originally the Prince Regent’s riding house. Little alteration took place with the exception of lighting being added and the gravel floor replaced with wood in 1867.
Towards the end of the 19th century, the Corn Exchange was used as an archaeological and geological museum. It is now a unique and versatile venue with a magnificent single span of arched ceiling and a sprung maple floor. It was lovingly restored as part of the Brighton Dome lottery funded refurbishment project in 2002 and is at the centre of every brightonSEO event.
Featuring a small walk through the “outside” you’ll arrive at the intimate but surprisingly huge Studio Theatre. It’s just changed it’s name, if you’re a local you probably know it better as the Pavilion Theatre.
