Welcome to our first business forum at The Studio, Birmingham.. take a look around at this amazing space!
THE FIRST OF IT'S KIND IN BIRMINGHAM - WE INVITE YOU TO BE PART OF THIS FUN NETWORKING CONCEPT!
This is a networking event where upto 30 small businesses are invited to exhibit and present their products and services both to each other and to the public. As our business attendees, all we ask is a fee of £15 to cover our venue costs and for you to ask at least three people (more if you wish!) to come along to support you at a cost of £6 per ticket to be bought online through this site. This covers our costs and provides a great experience for all.
You will also be allowed two people per stand, so if you wish to bring a friend with you, please do. We have 30 tickets for sale for business owners, so please book your ticket, then tell us who you will be bringing with you and we'll register them for a FREE ticket.

I'm sure you'll agree, this is going to be a great afternoon and great value for money for everyone especially small business owners trying to get their name out there and create more exposure.
As business owners, it is advisable for you to have printed material prior to the event to promote your business. I would also advise having samples to share and discounts to include exclusively for this event and any freebies you can share with your brand on them.
Once booked, we shall be in contact to advise what a good stand would look like and to firm up other details of your visit.
Please also note, that we are encouraging different kinds of business to showcase, so no two businesses will be the same.
This is not only a business networking event, but an opportunity for everyone to meet new people and enjoy a relaxing afternoon in Central Birmingham, possibly supporting a relative, friend or work colleague, or just coming along to hear about some local businesses and enjoy the entertainment on offer.
There is free wi-fi throughout the building
We would advise business owners to wear business dress for professional purposes, but this could be in the form of a branded t-shirt, suit or otherwise. The choice is yours of course.
There is no dress code for public attendees.
Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
For business owners, we would ask that you are over 18 as alcohol will be served on arrival.
We would highlight this event is most suitable for adults as it's business oriented but if you do need to attend with a child, then children need to be registered through our ticket link.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
There are various options around the venue for parking as it's a short walk from Grand Central and the Bullring. There are also options towards Colmore Row and Newhall Street where you can park on the road.
What can't I bring to the event?
As it's a licensed venue then no alcohol or food to be brought in and of course the obvious items, no weapons or drugs are allowed and anyone found carrying anything will be immediately expelled from the event.
Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?
If you have any questions at all, please contact the organiser through the button below on the right 'or through the website contact page.
Is my registration/ticket transferrable?
Your ticket isn't refundable as we need to cover our venue costs, but you can transfer your ticket it to someone else.
There is a lift at the property and the event is on the 4th floor (ESCAPE ROOM).
How can I spread the word about this event?
We would really grateful if you can share on social media and tell your friends.
