American Express Community Stadium

American Express Community Stadium

Home to Brighton FC, the American Express Community Stadium (Amex) meets all your corporate needs, with heaps of space for large scale exhibitions, conferences, training days, receptions, banquets, parties and smaller executive meetings. Located on the outskirts of Brighton and Hove, this whopping venue has exhibition capacity for over 30,000 visitors, with first rate lounges available for gatherings of up to 550 people, or 800 guests for a standing reception.

The ground floor concourse has three linked areas giving the potential for a huge u-shaped exhibition space, whilst the North Concourse stands alone. All have full height shutters to aid delivery and set up, and there’s also an upper concourse with far reaching views of Brighton and the South Downs, and capacity for 50-100 people.

10 flexible lounges are superb for larger events, with the biggest accommodating up to 650 guests. Rooms can be configured according to your event – in theatre, classroom or cabaret style, for banquets or receptions. Many of these spaces boast superb views of the pitch and the flexibility to create smaller areas for break outs and receptions, as well as private bars and plenty of natural light. The Mayo Wynne Baxter Lounge features the architectural masterpiece of a double height ‘wave ceiling’ as well as a floor to ceiling glass façade, and it holds up to 650 people. The Heineken Room has some very innovative features, with a funky sweeping ceiling, two bars and a games area; it holds 50-150 guests. All lounges have state of the art audio-visual equipment and high speed wifi.

21 executive boxes have spectacular views of the pitch or the South Downs, and are perfect for more private board meetings and lunches. Single boxes hold up to 18 guests whilst a double box has room for 40; either sizes are also perfect for break out space or refreshments for events held in the lounges.

You can rely on a warm welcome and the services of an experienced events team when it comes to the organisation and smooth running of your event. There’s a range of delegate packages to suit all budgets, or you can go bespoke and have things tailored to your requirements. A huge choice of menus is delivered by top class creative caterers, with all diets taken into consideration.

Amex Stadium is within easy reach of the M23 and A27, though parking at the venue is limited. Most visitors arrive by public transport - Falmer train station is adjacent to the concourse, with regular services to Brighton and Lewes.
