Canterbury Bid

Free Monthly Networking

Canterbury Connected BID Networking takes place once a month in a variety of different venues. This gives local businesses an opportunity to showcase their establishment and activities to other local business members. Each month sees between 40-60 members of the business community joining us for the event. It is an informal,  relaxed and sociable atmosphere and a great opportunity to get to know fellow professionals in Canterbury.

Networking events in 2020 will alternate between lunchtime and evening sessions to enable as many Canterbury BID members to have an opportunity to join us. All lunchtime sessions will be in partnership with Girlings Solicitors and will include a light lunch and non-alcoholic beverages. Our evening sessions will include alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks and nibbles.

Upcoming Networking Events:

  • Thurs 9 January, 12.30-2pm: BID Lunchtime Networking at The Ambrette (FULLY BOOKED) – in partnership with Girlings Solicitors
  • Wednesday 12 February, 5-7pm: BID Evening Networking at The Daphne Oram Building, the brand new Creative Arts Building in Canterbury Christ Church University’s city centre campus. Address: North Holmes Rd, Canterbury CT1 1QU.
