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. We ask that you book for lunchtime sessions, so we know how many we are catering for!

We have been lucky to host networking events at many wonderful local businesses over the last year. Not only does it give us a chance to learn more about the history of the business, but is also an opportunity for them to showcase their space and activities – here are a few highlights from our 2019 calendar:
