After the success of the last Business Networking Event at Towner Art Gallery we are busy planning the next! This time we will focus on the Coastal Culture Trail itself and how the project can benefit your business.
Are you a business on the coast in East Sussex? Are you interested in increasing footfall to the area?
We would like to invite you to an evening for local businesses on the Coastal Culture Trail to hear from the organisers, those in charge of key cultural projects and provide networking opportunities. This is an informal opportunity to find out more about key events for 2016 and how they might impact on the footfall to your business. Do you know of key things happening in your area, could you recommend them to your customers?
