South Lakeland Business to Business Events

We hold regular free working lunches and networking events throughout the year across South Lakeland. These events help us engage with businesses in South Lakeland and provide a forum for businesses to discuss issues that directly affect them. They also provide a ideal opportunity to network with other businesses and make new contacts.

We are holding a free Business and Networking Event on Wednesday 11 March at The Belsfield Hotel, Bowness-on-Windermere. Doors will open from 10.45am for networking, refreshments and registration and the event will start at 11am.
