MKFM Column: MKFM’s networking event hailed as a massive success

More people turn out for the Meet of MK than ever before…

The Meet of MK was launched 18 months ago as an alternative to some of the already well established networking events.

In January, over 100 local businesses and organisations attended. Many attendees told MKFM that, despite all of the uncertainty surrounding Brexit, business confidence going into 2019 remains high.

Recent reports show that Milton Keynes is in the top 10 cities for almost all positive economic indicators.

Figures show MK is the fifth most popular place in the UK to start-up a business, it is third for the number of established businesses and the ninth best city to find a job with the percentage of job seeker claimants at a record low of 1.5%.

Joanne Ronan, head of sales and advertising for MKFM said: “We wanted to introduce an event that felt more like after work drinks which allowed networking, but also helped attendees relax at the end of each month.

“I believe the event has been well received, based on regular attendees and new faces from positive referrals.

“The event sees a great mix of businesses attend, including many of our partners, and is always a great evening with attendees making new contacts and friends.”

The event has moved to a new location at Marco’s New York Italian Central Milton Keynes next to the Holiday Inn.

Regular attendees will feel at home with the usual drinks on arrival and an opportunity to sample Marco’s food with a great selection of nibbles.

The next Meet of MK takes place between 5pm and 7pm on Thursday 28th March. To book your place visit
