We believe networking should be a friendly and enjoyable experience with the purpose of making new contacts and collaborations to help your business succeed.

We bring together business people from across the region to share information and ideas, talk with like-minded people, discuss challenges and find solutions.

Making new connections and building trusting, lasting relationships with other NBN members will encourage inter-trading, facilitate business referrals and promote local business to support the local economy.

We send out an occasional news letter to members and regularly update the News Page of our website with useful information provided by our sponsors, members and neighbouring Business Network Groups.

The Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and the Business & Economy team at Hambleton District Council also contribute with signposts to sources of education, training, expertise, assistance and support.

About The Group:

Northallerton Business Network is a monthly networking event usually held on the first Monday of each month from 5:00pm to 7:00pm.

The group was set up in November 2013 to bring businesses from across Northallerton and neighbouring areas together for an informal networking evening on a monthly basis and enable members to make new contacts and promote their businesses. Our members include small, medium and large businesses in the Hambleton area, some of which have been established for many years and some of which are just starting up

No charge is made for attending the meetings as we are supported by our monthly sponsors who cover the costs of venue hire and refreshments. This makes networking accessible for businesses of all sizes.

NBN is a dynamic and forward-looking business network with a growing membership.

To support the continuing success of the group we ask members to encourage colleagues and acquaintances to get involved.

We don't aim to be the biggest business network but we do want to be the most supportive, proactive and friendly network. With over 100 members, and having recently been recognised with the Hambleton Business Award in the Networking Group category in July 2017 we seem to be heading in the right direction! Check out our members feedback page to view a video and comments from members who nominated us for the award.


The energy and enthusiasm of our members is amazing and our vibrant business group makes all our networking events great fun.

With over 100 members NBN is one of the leading business networks in the area. We have members from Bedale, Great Ayton, Richmond, Ripon, Stokesley and Thirsk in addition to Northallerton. Our members cover a wide range of business sectors and many offer special discounts to NBN members. We plan to add a members directory to the website in the future.


At Northallerton Business Network we offer 2 sponsorship options.

We have a basic option which is priced at £100, and this allows exclusive sponsorship of one network meeting,

An event sponsor has the exclusive opportunity to:

• display banners, leaflets, posters and business cards around the room

• say a few words about your business on the evening or give a presentation to the attendees (maximum duration 20 minutes)

We also have a premium option, priced at £150, which includes all the benefits in the basic package plus the option to provide information which can be included in our regular email-newsletters and news section of our website. In addition your logo and link to your business will be displayed on the sponsors page of our website.

A reduction of 50% on either option will be available to valued members, who have been registered and attending regularly for 12 months or longer.

If you’d like to raise the profile of your organisation by sponsoring a future meeting please contact Gill.

Prize Draw

We plan to also have a free prize draw each month so if your business would like to offer a prize this would be most welcome.

Volunteer organisers

Organisers provide their time on a voluntary basis and we are seeking additional assistance for areas such as planning, and ‘meet and greet’. If you are interested please contact one of the organising team.

Local Networking Opportunities

We encourage interaction with other business clubs and community projects. There are several other Local Business Networking Opportunities listed on a separate webpage whom we endeavour to communicate and collaborate with for the benefit of all parties.
