Cowes Business Association

Get connected with a network of local businesses

Supporting Cowes, East Cowes, Northwood and Gurnard

One of the many benefits of being a member of the Cowes Business Association is attending our networking events and meeting other local business people.

For many years we have run networking meetings throughout the town and they have been well attended, often with guest speakers and normally hosted at the business premises of one of our members.

Recently we have restructured our offerings to give members more choice. Now we aim to hold two networking opportunities each month. A Virtual Drop in and a Networking Event.

The Virtual Drop In is intended to be similar to just meeting up in the pub for a chat! We meet online for an hour with no specific agenda and it’s an opportunity to get to know other members and the committee. We talk about anything that is of interest to the participants and it’s a great chance to provide us with feedback about what we’re doing well and what still needs to be improved upon. We welcome potential members too so this could be the perfect time to find out a bit more about becoming a member of the Cows Business Association.

Meetings are held early in the month and are advertised on this website, on social media and by email.

Our monthly, members only Networking Events are a little more structured and we aim to have them at a member’s premises. We normally have a guest speaker, followed by any questions and then a chance to network with other members and the committee. This is a great opportunity for members to showcase their business and many of them provide some simple refreshments as well.

If you would like to host one of our Networking Events or maybe be a guest speaker then please get in touch with our networking coordinator using the contact page.

We aim to hold our Networking Events towards the end of the month and these are also advertised on this website, on social media and by email. Unlike the drop in, these events are for members only and booking is essential.
