Business invite: come along to the open meeting of Down Business Connect.

Formed by likeminded businessmen and women in the Down area, the Down Business Connect Group meets fortnightly and is comprised of members across a broad range of sectors who come together to meet, make new contacts and share business advice and expertise.

Taking place at Denvir’s Hotel, Downpatrick on Tuesday 26th November at 7am for a 7.30am start, the DBC Open Morning aims to attract more members to the Group, increasing the size of the network and therefore opportunities for growth for its members. 

With only one member per sector, the Group is hoping to add a number of different professions to the network, and welcomes interest from all business people in the area who are interested in growing their businesses, sharing learnings and benefitting from peer advice.

Brendan Kearney, Chairperson, of Down Business Connect said: “Down Business Connect was established to provide a supportive network of contacts and opportunities for business growth for local businesses.  Our Group is already proving to be advantageous for members, and real business is being done, as well as invaluable connections being made. 

“We always welcome new members and would encourage any local business owners who are interested in finding out more about the group and hearing from our speakers to please attend. You’d be most welcome.”

At the forthcoming Down Business Connect open morning on Tuesday 26th November, guests will find out more about what Down Business Connect can do for their business and they’ll have a chance to meet members and hear first-hand how the Group benefits their businesses.  

The open morning event is free to attend and will take place at Denvir’s Hotel, Downpatrick, beginning at 7.30am sharp and running until 9am.
