You know the story, brightonSEO started in a room above a pub….

Did you know that we’ve actually used quite a few of Brighton’s venues as the event has grown?

The first brightonSEO was on 19 February 2010 in a room above The Quadrant in Brighton.

A few months later the second edition took place in July at Brighton’s Community Base.

In 2011 we moved to the April & September schedule we all know and love. We were at the Sallis Benney theatre in April then the Corn Exchange for September.

In 2012 we shifted next door into the Brighton Dome Concert Hall, using only the stalls in April then expanding onto the balcony for September.

In 2013 we went multi-track using various spaces in the Brighton Dome before outgrowing it and moving to our current venue, the Brighton Centre, in September 2016.

Future dates

The next conference is on 1 and 2 October 2020.

A glorious history
