Due to the Covid-19 outbreak the decision has been made that this year’s LDC Conference will be held online as a virtual event.
Please see the home page for more details.

We have an allocation of rooms available at the headquarters hotel (The Grand Brighton) at a rate of £162 per night inclusive of VAT and breakfast, and also at the nearby Jury’s Inn Hotel where the bedroom rate is £159 per night inclusive of VAT and breakfast.

Reservations must be made through our nominated accommodation agent, MICE Concierge.

When booking your accommodation through MICE Concierge it is very important to indicate what ‘type’ of attendee you are:

  • LDC Representative
  • LDC Observer
  • GDPC member
  • Other

Why? This ensures we can apply accommodation costs to the correct funding body.

Room charges for:

  • LDC Representatives are billed to the LDC Conference Fund
  • GDPC members are billed to the BDA
  • Observers are liable for their own hotel charges.

LDC Representatives and GDPC members

If you are attending the event in the capacity of LDC Representative or GDPC Member your accommodation on the Thursday night (single occupancy B&B) will only be pre-paid if you book via our agency MICE Concierge who are managing the rooming block.

Formal proceedings will commence at 13:30 on the Thursday to facilitate as much travel on the day of the event. Where distances involved do not make travel on the day possible please contact Fiona Feltham, Event Manager (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. / 020 7563 6876) to gain approval for accommodation on account the night prior.

Additional nights for weekend stays and double occupancy upgrades (£24 per night supplement) can be arranged via MICE Concierge and the additional costs involved must be settled by individuals on check-out.

LDC Observers

Please note that LDC Observers may also use MICE Concierge to book their accommodation but must settle the full cost of their accommodation plus any extras on their departure from the hotel.

Hotel booking deadline

Please note the release date for all un-allocated bedrooms is Friday 3 April so do ensure you reserve your room before this date to guarantee availability and discounted rates.
