The Business Network is a structured lunchtime networking group with a national reputation for excellence. This is your opportunity to experience business to business networking at its best. It will only cost you the price of a lunch plus a couple of hours of your time.

At each event we have a seating plan which ensures a good selection of businesses at each table. Membership is corporate and by invitation. We allow 4 to 5 members in each business category.


The Business Network has a unique and very effective format and has been helping businesses grow since 1994. These events attract business owners, directors and senior level staff i.e. the decision makers.
