Speaker Bio: Emma Thurlow


Known as a “city that inspires”, I am proud to be in a position that allows me to promote Brighton & Hove to domestic and international conference organisers.

Having worked in the conference industry for over 15 years, with most of that time spent in Brighton, I have vast experience of the sector as both a supplier, working in venues but also from the client perspective, working in a Brighton’s official tourism organisation; VisitBrighton.

Brighton is recognised nationally and internationally as a leading and dynamic conference city, combining a seaside location with a vibrant city atmosphere and in my role within the Convention Bureau, I have helped secure a large number of high profile events for the city. These include: Political Party Conferences, large multi-day corporate events, Association sector conferences through to smaller team build/incentive lead groups. My experience truly is as diverse as the range of events Brighton welcomes.
