What a great event – a HUGE thank you to everyone who attended the Friends of City Business Expo on 29 November.  Over 150 people came from far and wide to meet the exhibitors, network and make new business contacts over a very tasty buffet lunch.

2012 has been a great year for the group and we really appreciate the support from all of the members and guests.  We will be working hard to make the events even better in 2013, so don’t miss out – book your place at the next meeting today!

So what do you need to know?

We get together once a month at Chelmsford City FC (Melbourne Park, Salerno Way, Chelmsford, Essex, CM1 2EH), alternating between breakfast and lunchtime meetings.  The next event is a breakfast on Wednesday 16 January from 7am-9am.  The meetings are free to attend – if you like us and you’d like to join up and support the club there is a great membership package which includes advertising space and a copy of the attendance list, but that’s up to you.  There’s plenty of free parking and food, tea and coffee is provided free of charge.  How’s that for great value?

The meetings are very informal – there are no bells or whistles and you don’t need to give a 60 second speech.  We have already taken lots of bookings, so we can guarantee you will meet a real mix of businesses – large and small.  This is a great opportunity to make new contacts and catch up with old friends in a relaxed environment.

If you’d like to come along

Either drop our Business Development Manager Aaron Desmond an email at:


or give him a call on 01245 893404 or 07802 807197

To keep things fair, we only allow up to 3 businesses from any trade or profession to attend, so please book early to avoid disappointment.

If you can’t attend this time

The meeting after next will be a lunch on on Thursday 21 February from 12pm-2pm.  If you contact Aaron now, he will make sure you get a reminder.

Last but not least, if you know someone you think might be interested then please feel free to let them know – the bigger the group, the more new contacts we all make and everyone’s a winner.

We look forward to seeing you there!
