Welcome to the NBN website
If you want business networking to be an enjoyable and positive experience NBN is the network for you.
Our FREE networking events are only possible with the kind support of our sponsors:

Don't just Live It, Learn It
If it wasn't for our sponsors and hosts we wouldn't be able to hold our FREE networking events!
So whenever you have the opportunity please help to promote their services and venues
Zoom Zone - for Members
Northallerton Business Network (NBN) is a proactive networking group for Northallerton and surrounding areas. Our relaxed and informal style is designed to help small to medium size organisations raise the profile of their business and to develop new business contacts.
Until further notice we will be holding Virtual Network Meetings, using Zoom, on the first Monday of each month, starting at 5pm. Members should automatically receive an invitation. Drop us an email if your invite has got lost in the post!

Non-members are welcome to attend one NBN meeting on a trial basis before registering for membership. One free non-member ticket only per business please. If you register and do not attend this will count as your trial and you will need to apply for membership before registering for a future event.
Although attendance for most events is free (for Hambleton based businesses) you do need to sign up via eventbrite in advance of each meeting to allow us to do the courtesy of informing venues and sponsors of numbers ahead of the event for catering purposes. Free places are limited so please register or alternatively pay cash on arrival.
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.
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 most of our 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.
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 been recognised with the Hambleton Business Award in the Networking Group category 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.
Our members cover a wide range of business sectors and some offer special discounts to NBN members.
Organisers provide their time on a voluntary basis and we are seeking additional assistance for areas such as planning, ‘meet and greet’, social media, photography/videography and marketing & PR. 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.
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.
