Bournemouth has a fantastic, dynamic vibe
It’s a bustling and growing centre of business innovation, creativity and infrastructure investment
Bournemouth is the perfect place for professionals to get together to meet, debate and share ideas.
With open spaces, 7-miles of sandy beaches, great shopping and an eclectic mix of bars, restaurants and entertainment. It’s also a bustling and growing centre of business innovation, creativity and infrastructure investment, and an incubation hub for some of the UK’s best young talent at Bournemouth University and the Arts University of Bournemouth.
This combination is rarely found in a single event destination, unparalleled anywhere in the UK and delivers compelling, rounded delegate experiences.
Whether it’s a party conference, a tech exhibition, a scientific seminar, a major product launch, a sales kick-off or a workshop for a small group, Bournemouth does it better.

For a completely different and more relaxed conference experience, why not incorporate a gentle physical activity programme for delegates to relax before and after a busy day in conference.
Business Events Bournemouth is well connected and can organise an array of activities. Sessions can include wake-up and wind-down seafront walks, sunrise yoga and body flow balance. Delegates can also take advantage of lunchtime stretch and core exercises.
Bournemouth sits on the eastern edge of Dorset, claimed to be the greenest county
in the land. Bournemouth is the only UK town to join the Earth Charter Initiative, a diverse, global network of people, organisations, and institutions that promotes and implements the sustainability values and principles of the Earth Charter.
Bournemouth International Centre and Bournemouth Pavilion, the town’s largest venues, are both run by BH Live — a social enterprise dedicated to improving and enriching lifestyles in the community. These major venues are implementing an energy and water strategy designed not just to save money, but also to reduce the buildings’ carbon footprint.
One of Bournemouth’s hotels, the newly refurbished Green House, is a green role model — with its solar power, energy-efficient lighting, eco furniture, fixtures and fittings, locally sourced produce, high welfare standards and a commitment to reduce, reuse and recycle.
In Hampshire, the county next door, is the New Forest National Park, sustained by a 900 year-old regime that no-one’s yet managed to better — and where most of the maintenance is left to commoners and their ponies, cattle and pigs.
Just a few miles west is the famous World Heritage Site, the Jurassic Coast, covering 95 miles of coastline from East Devon to Dorset and charting 185 million years of Earth’s history.
Bournemouth’s southerly location benefits from a micro climate that makes it feel a little warmer, drier and sunnier than most event destinations in the UK.
