NBN Meetings

To attend our NBN Meetings, please register via the Eventbrite links at the bottom of this page. We would love to network with you!

Our Physical meetings are held in a variety of times, places and with various formats so that there is something for everyone wanting to network. And always with a relaxed and informal element as the main part of our events. See below for our NEW Breakfast Meetings!

Our Thursday morning Zoom meetings are still on offer alongside our new Physical ones. The reduction on travel CO2 emissions, the additional inclusivity it allows, with savings on time, costs and the convenience means that Virtual events will stay in place for significant part of our networking activities.

This year, as before, we are looking forward in particular to our NBN Christmas Meeting and Lunch on Sunday 11th December 2022, at Esseborne Manor Hotel.  The hotel is always beautifully decorated, log fires will be roaring, the food there is exceptional and the staff look after us so well! It will be a moment in time to review all the successes of our wonderful NBN members and associates, and consider some of the things we will be doing next year. I can’t wait to be there doing just that – there is so much for us to celebrate!

Joint Networking with other groups and organisations continues to benefit all our NBN members, businesses and community. The Andover Business Week initiated by Hampshire Chamber of Commerce and NatWest via Andover Chamber Business Strategy Group will be running again this year after being so successful in 2021 – to be held 19th to 23rd of September.

I feel that generally, everything for Business and also Community Networking is on the up for Andover and Test Valley. And with the efforts of the Andover BID and TVBC our Andover Town Centre is improving by leaps and bounds.

If you need help with ‘ZOOM‘ then do pop along for a look at their website where simple instructions are all available –https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us

I know that tech is now an old friend to some of you who are expert in it, but bearing in mind our many fledgling businesses, please do always feel welcome to ask for help in any way. We are in this together and there is a rich resource of expertise to be shared amongst our members, associates and visitors.

Best wishes
