Networking – Business Events and Workshops

Networking events

There are many regular business and networking events that take place in South Oxfordshire and the county as a whole. These events are often a great way of making those crucial face to face contacts, and they are also a place to perhaps learn about new regulations, or innovative ways of working.

SO Business have provided a handy list below where you’ll find details of relevant networking events happening in the region.

Some of these require pre-registration so please follow the links to find out if this is the case. Many of these events are free, but some do require paid for tickets. Often the ticket includes food and drink, or insight that could be valuable for your business. Follow the links for more information on your chosen event.
