BUSINESS owners in Greater Manchester will be able to attend in-person events at hubs run by Northern Affinity.

In line with government guidelines, the firm has organised a number of local get togethers for business owners within Greater Manchester, South Yorkshire and West Yorkshire.

Outdoor meetings of up to six people are taking place across the city-region, scheduled for lunchtimes.

Each meet-up will provide a great opportunity for attendees to get away from their desks, exercise, and enjoy conversation with other like-minded business owners from across the region.

The first indoor meeting for partners will take place on May 27 at Business Lodge, Europa House, though places will be limited to 15 to comply with social distancing guidelines.

Michael Edwards, founder of The Northern Affinity said:“We’ve all had to be flexible over the past year and adapt to a world of online communication and collaboration only.

“Whilst that’s brought its own set of opportunities, what we’ve seen from partners over the past few months is a clear desire to get back to face to face events as well.

“Previously, our events have been held in pubs, bars and restaurants, but we’re just as excited about the new outdoor local get togethers, as are our partners and associates.

“I want to do whatever I can to help northern businesses bounce back from the pandemic, and I fully believe widening their support network is the first step.”

The Northern Affinity is a business community based across the north which provides a platform for business owners to connect, collaborate and support one another.

As a partner of the Northern Powerhouse, the firm is committed to championing businesses within the North by powering growth and development.
