The Return Of Face-To-Face Lunch Events

The Business Network Birmingham is planning a full schedule of socially distanced, low risk Face-To-Face networking lunch events from January 2021.

Following on from a successful trial event in October, The Business Network Birmingham will return to hosting Face-To-Face networking lunch events from January 2021, subject to Government regulations at the time.

The events will include a socially distanced seminar, 2 course networking lunch on 2 metre socially distanced tables of 8 to allow members and guests to meet again without a mask and build those crucial business relationships after almost a year of virtual events.  We will, of course, also be holding monthly virtual events via Zoom for those unable to attend.  The lunches will be resticted initially to a maximum of 24 places to comply with the regulations.  Safe "Meet Zones" will also be set up to allow cross-table networking to take place away from the lunch tables.

To ensure safety, everyone attending will required to follow strict rules:

  • Wear A Mask On Arrival At The Venue
  • Sanitise Hands & Temperature Checks Before Entering The Room
  • Remove Mask Only When Seated At The Socially Distanced Lunch Table
  • No Cross Table Networking Except In The Designated "Meet Zones"

We are confident that these events can go ahead in a safe, low risk environment enabling senior contacts once again meet and network together to build high quality business relationships.

What members and guests say

"Just wanted to drop you a quick line to compliment you on a most wonderful networking lunch today. I have attended a number of networking events during my career, but today's event was one of the most enjoyable for me. The relaxed atmosphere and informal lunch in such a wonderful location was enhanced even more by chatting with a number of inspiring and creative individuals."
