Following the success of their Bexhill lunch club, McPhersons Chartered Accountants have launched a brand new business lunch club for businesses in Hastings. This will be an informal event, held at the White Rock Hotel, where local businesses can enjoy some excellent food whilst networking.

McPhersons have been administering the Bexhill Lunch Club for over two years and from this, the results have been that it regularly attracts between 30 and 40 business people. It is held at the Trattoria Italiana and the De La Warr Pavilion.

The White Rock Hotel is a McPhersons client and was chosen for the first lunch club. It enjoys some of the best views in Hastings and has a reputation for great value food.

All business people are welcome to attend. Booking, payment and menu choices are in advance and more information can be found at here.

The largest business to business exhibition and networking event returns to Hastings on Thursday 29th October with Lets do Business Hastings.

Returning to Sussex Coast College again this year, the show will welcome hundreds of business owners, directors and key-decision makers under one roof.

Let’s Do Business Hastings offers companies the perfect opportunity to promote their business, make new connections and generate new leads. All through good old-fashioned networking!

Exhibition stands are selling fast, with more than 50% booked up within just one week.

Wes Game, exhibition organiser said:

“We’ve had a great response to the Hastings exhibition again this year, which I think is testament to the thriving business community in the area.

“There is no substitute for face-to-face networking and the Let’s Do Business exhibitions give companies a great platform for this.”

The show will also feature speed networking in the morning and four free interesting and thought-provoking seminars throughout the day.

Stands start from just £215 (plus VAT) – book your space today online.

The Bexhill Lunch Club was a huge success last month with attendees snowballing to over thirty five local business people from Bexhill and Hastings at the Trattoria Restaurant.

Ainsley Gill, from McPhersons Chartered Accountants, who recently took over the management of the club, appreciates the value of
local businesses getting together and networking.

‘When we heard that HSBC were offering local businesses the chance to take over the lunch club, we immediately volunteered. This is a long-standing Bexhill event and has always been well-attended. It is an informal environment and encourages local businesses to network and identify mutually beneficial opportunities. We now plan to look into offering something similar in Hastings where we have another office.’

McPhersons successfully encouraged a wider range of businesses.  There were several newcomers from printing companies,  solicitors and representatives from local landmarks and attractions.

Ainsley Gill said. ‘Everyone likes to see fresh faces as well as people they already know so we will continue to encourage new people to attend this event. Thank you to the Trattoria Restaurant who delivered excellent food and service in a great environment.’

The lunch club will run every quarter with the next date being 10th December. For more details, or to register your interest in attending a similar event in Hastings, contact Katrina Smith at McPhersons 01424 730000 or email k.smith@mcphersons.co.uk.
