Pre #EalingBizExpo Networking: January meetup
Tue 31 Jan 2017, 1-2pm

Bring your business cards and your one-minute pitches, and let’s make some new business connections over in West Ealing.

Expo - Jan meetup

This relaxed one-hour meetup is part of the networking run-up to the Ealing Business Expo & Networking Festival scheduled for 19-20 May 2017.

The January meetup features a 10-minute Q&A with your Expo boss, Carlene Bender, answering any and all questions about exhibiting, sponsoring and visiting the Expo. Email your questions beforehand to:

The meetup is also another opportunity to visit the location for the future “Ealing Works” West Ealing Workspace coworking hub, as refurbishment work begins on the two-floor space.

The West Ealing Business Meetup is organised by Carlene Bender, editor/publisher of Contactus local business magazines, with the support of Ealing Council via Ealing Blueprint.
