FOOTPRINT+ is next to The Peace Statue, Kings Road, Brighton, BN3 2WN

Hove seafront begins at Hove Lawns and stretches right along to Hove Lagoon, near Portslade. There is a stunning walk along the seafront, especially just as the sun rises or sets, from the West Pier onwards.

The venue is a large marquee at the start of Hove Lawns, next to the Angel of Peace Statue. It provides a beautiful setting to host FOOTPRINT+ conference and the wind farm in the distance serves as a reminder of the aim of the event - to help businesses work to achieve net zero and preserve our planet.

The City

With a blend of modern culture and exotic architecture, sea and countryside, make Brighton your base and discover new places and experiences both inside the city and out.

What’s Brighton like in a nutshell?

Ever since royal party animal George IV fell in love with Brighton back in the 18th Century, the city has been a magnet for visitors in search of fun, frolics and fresh sea air. With its majestic Regency squares and crescents, iconic Royal Pavilion and famous piers, today Brighton is as well-known for being a welcoming and diverse city with a passion for culture, creativity and sustainability as it is for its historic landmarks.

  • 50% of all of the carbon emissions that we need to reduce as we get to 2050 have to come from the built environment. It’s from buildings, it’s from construction, it’s from logistics and it’s from infrastructure. So there’s no escaping the destiny here; it has to be the built environment that takes the lead here.”
