There’s nothing like an interesting view to get people talking. So if your business clients, team or networking group are looking for inspiration then take them to British Airways i360 in Brighton, where sweeping seascapes and innovative engineering will fuel their conversations and breathe fresh air into your event.

As your group gently glides up to 450ft in the futuristic British Airways i360 glass pod they’ll gain a whole new perspective on Brighton & Hove and the beautiful south coast, and they can even toast their achievements with a drink at the Nyetimber Sky Bar during their flight.

British Airways i360 is all about aiming high – it’s the world’s tallest moving observation tower and was conceived and designed by Marks Barfield Architects, creators of the London Eye. It also holds the Guinness World Record as the world’s most slender tower. Since opening on Brighton beach in August 2016 it has become a beacon of discovery and innovation; the perfect environment in which to push boundaries, forge new relationships or simply celebrate in style.

The events spaces

For a drinks reception or networking event with a difference, hire the British Airways i360 pod for exclusive use; it can accommodate up to 175 people and has a state-of-the-art Bose sound system and screens which can be used to present films or branding.

Conversations will flow as you move into the flexible private event spaces in the British Airways i360 beach building, which are suitable for anything from small intimate meetings to groups of up to 1,160 people. Natural light pours in through full-height windows and the two largest areas, Attenborough and Birch, open out onto private beachfront terraces. Moving walls make the beach building event spaces completely flexible and it’s possible to hire the whole building for private use.

You may be at the beach, but business carries on as normal at British Airways i360, as the events spaces have AV facilities and there is super-fast fibre optic broadband.

“The British Airways i360 pod is a unique, moving events venue with breath-taking views and a bar on board. There is nowhere else like this on the south coast,” said British Airways i360 sales manager Sophie Shepherd.

“Organisers report very high turnout for events at British Airways i360, and people really enjoy themselves – we are right on Brighton seafront and it’s not unusual to see conference delegates kicking off their shoes and taking a stroll on the beach.“

Food and drink

Guests can enjoy drinks receptions, lunches, dinners or formal banquets while taking in views of the historic West Pier. Menus can be tailored to individual event requirements and dishes are inspired by the seasons, with at least 50% of the ingredients sourced locally.

Whether you’re looking out at summer days or winter seas, British Airways i360 is a stunning events venue all year around. So no matter how busy your agenda, there is always a place in Brighton for blue sky thinking.
