Surrey Big Networking Event 2023

Surrey Event Professionals, Surrey Business Expo & Paul Marcus Media bring you the BiS BIG Networking Event.

This popular biannual event is a collaborative networking morning with an expected 200-250 businesses in attendance. In partnership with many local business networking groups and organisations, attendees will experience different networking styles over the morning and on average directly interact with over 70 businesses.

This informal and friendly event is open to ANY businesses in or near Surrey, whether you’re a regular networking or not. It also may be a great way to discover which type and networking groups could benefit your business. As we strongly recommend businesses should be part of a number of different groups to showcase their businesses.
