Canterbury Bid


Join us for our free monthly networking events. 

Canterbury Connected BID Networking takes place once a month from 5-7pm at a different venue each time. 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.

If you would like your business to host a networking event, please contact Rachel Pilard
