The Big Breakfast at three new locations in 2018!

The Big Breakfast at three new locations in 2018!

The Big Breakfast – south London and Surrey’s biggest and most successful business networking event – is going on the road this spring.
The hugely popular free business breakfast, now in its eighth year, will visit London Gatwick on 8TH March, Epsom Racecourse on 10th May and a venue in Kent in June, as well as Croydon throughout the year.
The first breakfast of the New Year, at its regular home at IKEA Croydon on 25th January, broke records with more than 100 business people in attendance.
Now returning sponsors London Gatwick Airport and Coast to Capital hope The Big Breakfast will be just as successful when it ventures into Surrey and Kent this spring.
Gatwick Airport’s Head of Community Engagement, Alison Addy, said:
“We are delighted to be headline sponsor of the highly successful Big Breakfast programme again this year, and look forward to hosting additional events for businesses in Sussex, Surrey and Kent. Gatwick is one of the largest employment sites in the region and recognises the economic importance of providing space for local businesses to secure new business opportunities.”
The Big Breakfast next meets at Ikea Croydon, from 7am to 10pm on 22nd February at Ikea Croydon. The networking event is great for expanding your business network without eating too much into your working day.
Malcolm Brabon, Head of Services at Coast to Capital, said: “The Big Breakfast is an excellent way for businesses to make new contacts and open up supply chain opportunities. The events have proved to be consistently popular and having new locations adds yet another valued opportunity.”
Attendees enjoy a free buffet breakfast at 7am and the chance to make some great new contacts in fun and friendly environment. They also receive some additional fantastic benefits including:
• A tasty buffet breakfast
• A £5 IKEA voucher
• A business card draw
Each networking session follows the speed dating format, with delegates taking part
in a series of five minute, one-to-one pitching sessions.
The highly successful event opened the door to a host of new opportunities for a record number of businesses in 2017. Attendance at the monthly event, which travelled to Gatwick, Lingfield and Epsom last year, rose by over 10% with an average of 90 to 100 delegates at each early morning session.
The Big Breakfast is free to attend. It will be held from 7am to 10am, on Thursday, 22nd February, 2018 at IKEA Croydon, Valley Retail Park, 2 Hesterman Way, Croydon CR0 4YA
The venues for London Gatwick and Kent will be announced shortly.
