How would you best describe The Grand Brighton and Richmond Hill Hotel as event destinations?
Idyllic locations, awesome teams, endless passion and iconic hotels!
What is your favourite cocktail on the menu at The Grand Brighton and Richmond Hill Hotel? At Richmond it’s the Apple and Ginger Mojito - perfectly formed with a spicy twist. It’s my go to cocktail of choice to kickstart the weekend.
At Brighton, it’s got to be the Columbus 1493 - I love the story behind this one. The pineapple which it's served in is an international sign of hospitality and its flavours denote a warm welcome. Plus, the sheer theatre on arrival of this dry ice cocktail is a real head turner!
Who else will be joining you at The Meetings Show? A smiley, welcoming team happy to help and share our passion for our properties!
Alison Edwards, Director of sales
How do you deem an event a success?
Fabulous feedback from all stakeholders, a desire to come back and continually tell friends and colleagues how much they enjoyed their time at either The Grand Brighton or Richmond Hill Hotel. We know that it’s the lasting memories we help to create that generate our repeats and referrals.
What has been your most ambitious event to date, and why?
There’s never a dull moment at The Grand Brighton, and we’ve catered for all events from the intimate to the extravagant.
At Richmond Hill Hotel, we’ve previously had a client take over whole hotel for exclusive use and re-brand all 15 meeting rooms in the company’s style. Who would have thought the Richmond room could be transformed into a Ceylon tea plantation in an afternoon!
This was the first time we had offered to close the doors of our Georgian townhouse for a three day event, and seeing the transformation of the blank canvas event spaces showed just what could be done.
Kirsty Grammer, Director of sales
Can you sum up Brighton and Richmond in five words?
Brighton - inclusive, vibrant, eclectic, friendly, invigorating. Richmond - accessible, calming, green, oasis, views.
Both locations make for incredibly memorable places to stay and play.
What can we expect from The Grand Brighton and Richmond Hill Hotel at The Meetings Show? An insight into what holding an event at our properties really feels like!
We'll be there to give you the truly compelling reasons why you should hold your next event with us. You’ll be introduced to two new alternatives for your meetings, events, away days and parties. Our solution orientated events teams live eat and breathe not only the hotel but are passionate about the destination they're hosted in.
You may think you know the hotels but we hope our team will surprise and delight you with the developments!
