Canterbury Bid

Free Monthly Networking

Canterbury 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.

Next Networking Event:

Book your space by emailing Emily Wells

We might not be able to meet in person, but we can still celebrate the start of 2022, so grab a mug of your favourite brew, a biscuit and settle in for the Café edition of our January online networking…

The session will feature biscuit bingo, a café quiz (prizes: £300 worth of Canterbury Gift Cards), best looking mug competition, a chance to get to know your local cafés, and a great opportunity to network with other local businesses.

Through Spring to Autumn 2021, BID was hosting monthly networking sessions via Zoom. Each session welcomed over 50 local business representatives, and showcased local products including a chocolate tasting with Madame Oiseau, beer tasting with Shepherd Neame and gin tasting with The Foundry – cheers to that!

We have been lucky to host networking events at many wonderful local businesses. 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:
