Also, the Gemini Print team were proud sponsors of Tourist Attraction of the Year 2019.

Gemini Print Director Mark Tulley said “This is a very important award for the City and it was a very tough choice as so many companies are playing a key role putting Brighton and Hove on the map in a very tough, competitive sector.  Tourism is critical to so many businesses and supply chains from across the region”.

The judge’s decision was a tough choice as the calibre of entries was excellent.  Shortlisted:

  • Brighton Marina – The largest marina in the UK with a wide range of facilities to entertain all ages – from yachties to cinema audiences, conference attendees to casino enthusiasts, retail therapy to family-friendly play areas – something for everyone.

  • British Airways i360 – Britains highest coastal viewing tower.  Never to be missed on the seafront – guests enjoy the ‘flights’ to 450 feet for panoramic vistas in addition to quality retail, bars, café and restaurant options.

  • Phileas Fogg’s World of Adventures – The newest indoor leisure attraction in Brighton.  With 16 different sets and 30 challenges to experience the creation by the owner, Graham Owen is original, multi-sensory and highly interactive.

  • Pier Pressure Brighton – Phil & Perry Harris have created an ‘escape room’ for professional team building and parties, and family outings – the facilities celebrate the colourful cultural history of Brighton from the Pavillion to Mods & Rockers and rave nightclubs.
