• Handpicked Harrogate

Give your business some extra pizzazz in 2022!

Our popular face-to-face networking events are coming back from January 2022 and we are actively looking for businesses to headline our events.

Meeting in various venues across Wetherby and Harrogate, we are offering a great opportunity to be the stand-out at each event we host.

#wetherbyhour live and #harrogatelive have attracted a healthy audience of between 30-100 at each event, helping thousands of small businesses connect, generate business and raise awareness - as well as showcasing some amazing venues both areas have to offer since we launched.

Inundated with messages asking when we are starting again, we're confident that 2022 will be a very busy year!

We have a diverse range of industries that network with us and here's what some had to say about their experience...

"Your networking nights are some of the most relaxed and enjoyable I attend and over many years (about 16 or 17) I have been to a few!" Fiona Gilbert - Care Home Finder

"Thoroughly enjoyed my first visit to wetherbyhour this morning, what a fantastic networking group" Johanne Spittle, Ware & Kay Solicitors

"It was a great night, thank you for organising these events, really enjoyable networking" Paul Lillywhite - Lilywhite Consulting

"A great event, well attended and super hospitality. Thank you" Peter Maclennan - The Right Broker
