Join us at Brighton Summit and you’ll certainly Embrace the Unknown throughout the day. No more so than during our Unknown Hour.

You can’t prepare for it. You won’t be expecting it. But you will thoroughly enjoy it.

Don’t worry, you won’t be put at risk, made to do anything you don’t want to do, or embarrassed in any way. Committing to an unknown session is going outside your comfort zone; you can’t pick as you would have done in previous years.

Why? Because we’re Embracing the Unknown! Explore your fearlessness, challenge yourself, and feel wonderful when you give yourself a huge pat on the back after.

On arrival, as well as the normal warm Chamber welcome, you’ll be randomly allocated a session for the Unknown Hour. You’ll be given a ticket which you simply present when the time comes.

Don’t panic! To help ease your pain, there’ll be a clue on your ticket with a hint at what to expect. If you want to see some of the clues in advance, check them out here.

Don’t want to play? If you don’t like the sound of your session, simply swap with another attendee. It might just be the perfect conversation starter. Or if you feel it’s a step too far, come and see the Chamber team who will tell you about one of the sessions with spare places.

Go on, embrace your unknown!
