A catering company has hailed its long-term relationship with the Brighton Centre.
Jon Pryce, managing artner at KUDOS, singled out the venue for praise at the Association of British Professional Conference Organisers (ABPCO) event.

“I can honestly say we are very proud to be associated with the Brighton Centre and hope this partnership continues for many years to come.”
He went on to talk about the many rewards that have been reaped as a result of the trusted partnership including the significant increase in bookings in the venue, an increase in retail spend per head by 5% each year and the many high profile events that have taken place in the centre within the last five years.

They were interested in the venue’s retail spaces and subsequently invested £250,000 into them. Further investments went into refitting and refurbishing three retail outlets and delivering a new mobile retail concept.
