Brighton, United Kingdom
Brighton & Hove is one of the most vibrant, colourful and creative cities in Europe. Compact, unique, fun, lively, historic, young and free-spirited, it’s a great place to visit, live, work & study in. Under an hour from London, Brighton is located on England’s south coast, between the stunning South Downs and the English Channel. Often voted the happiest place in the UK, the city offers a fantastic mix of Regency heritage, fabulous shopping, funky arts and music, beachfront cool and year round festivals and events.
TNC21 will take place at the Hilton Metropole Brighton, located on the seafront.
We are delighted to organise TNC21 in Brighton in collaboration with our host this year, Jisc.
