Bodmin Chamber of Commerce & Industry Networking Event

If you would like an opportunity to meet with positive like-minded people, this is your chance to network, share ideas, tips and advice, and explore new connections with other business owners. Events often see people attending from Falmouth, St. Agnes, Launceston, as well as areas around Bodmin, so word is spreading fast.

Held monthly at Bodmin Jail, the staff will be on hand to welcome you and provide a delightful buffet, with jugs of iced water, and the bar will be open if you fancy a glass of beer or wine to compliment your food.

We look forward to meeting up with our regular visitors again, and welcoming new attendees and guests. Opportunities exist for businesses to take the spotlight and promote themselves, sponsor the evening, or, just give a short talk from our soapbox.

If you need any further information, or to book your place, please get in touch with Maggie Halton – Chamber Network Coordinator via email to or by telephone on 01726 851769.
