It will be held at Bournemouth’s Vitality Stadium, with plenty of room set aside to welcome a multitude of visitors.

It will begin with a Networking Breakfast hosted by the local ‘The Boardroom Network’ business networking club running from 7:30 am to 9:00 am. With plenty of networking, tea and coffee plus a full English breakfast, this part of the event is ticketed at £15 and must be booked in advance.

There will then be two complimentary Speed Networking sessions to help businesses make lots of new contacts quickly. One will be held in in the morning from 10:00 to 11:00 and one in the afternoon from 12:00 to 13:00. They are free of charge, however registering in advance is recommended.
