About our events

Building Sussex Connections is a monthly informal networking event that is organised by Bakerwell Limited and S.E.A Building Compliance.

Building Sussex Connections took the popular format of Building Kent Connections and brought this to Sussex in 2018, since then event has gone from strength to strength thanks to our supporters and the collaborative work that has come out of the event.

The key aim of our group is to provide an informal networking forum for development, design, construction, and professional consultants in the construction industry and related disciplines.

The focus of the event is for attendees to meet members of future pre-construction project teams involved at pre-planning and initial delivery stage rather than to secure sales or services.

Building Sussex Connections events are free to attend. Regular events are held on the second Friday of every month in Hove, events start at 12.30pm, finishing at 3pm A light lunch is provided by the sponsors of each event. Special events also take place at other Sussex locations such as at the South East Construction Expo, Artelium Wine tasting tour, Depot Christmas special in 2021.

Building Sussex and Kent Connections also hold a popular breakfast event during the Chartered Institute of Housing week in Brighton.

If you are interested in attending and your company falls into the Building Sussex Connections networking profile please get in touch at with a little bit of information about yourself and your company.

Opportunities to join our waiting list for sponsorship are open for 2022. After a period of virtual networking during the Covid-19 pandemic we are pleased to be carrying out live networking events again.

Due to holiday seasons the event does not take place in January, March and August, so that the events that do take place are of the most benefit to our attendees and sponsors.
