Free Business Networking Events
Within our network of buildings you’ll find a multitude of businesses. To make it possible for these companies, our clients, to easily meet, share and do business with each other, we launched mingle.
mingle. is a free networking opportunity that allows clients to search for businesses online, by location or industry, or network face to face by booking a place at one of our many breakfasts, seminars or keynote speaker events. Our events cover all sorts of topics, including top tips on branding your business and how to secure funding, and are attended by between 20-70 business owners and entrepreneurs. Clients also receive a 20% discount to attend events run by our partners E2Exchange and London First. You can request to speak at an event on an area of your expertise giving your company great exposure in front of like-minded business people, as well as the opportunity to pick up new business.
Between the launch on 10 February 2014, and now, we’ve hosted 14 successful and interesting events. Here is a list of the topics we have covered so far:

"... this was my first time at a Mingle event and I must say I was very pleased with what I saw, what I learned and how it was all run. The general atmosphere, I found was friendly, and I'm pleased to say that there was some interest in SH Business Services."

"The Mingle events have provided Execview with a wealth of new contacts; from fantastic local printers and web developers to industry contacts that we look forward to doing business with in the future.
Sessions are always varied and thought provoking, and we’ve learned about new and interesting topics. We’ve taken a lot back to the office and look forward to attending future events!"
"Physio in the City has been in an Avanta building for around five years and when we heard about the free mingle. events we were very interested in getting involved. We have found the talks to be informative, relevant, and applicable to our business development. The networking has also shown to be very productive for our company as we have been able to connect with companies that offer resources or services that meets our company's needs. We would highly recommend for other client of Avanta to
attend these networking meetings. "
"...I attended my first Mingle event this morning on the subject of disciplinary and grievance processes. We act as outsourced HR consultants for a number of clients and are always on the lookout for employment law specialists to partner with on behalf of our clients. I thought Alistair and Ruth from BDBF gave a really comprehensive overview of the pitfalls to look out for, definitely a talk worth repeating again in your schedule for those that missed this morning's session. I was really impressed with the informality of the event and how easy it was to meet and mingle with the other attendees after the talk. I'm already looking forward to the next event!..."
Great event yesterday, well worth attending. It was well organised, good subject and very interesting people. Thank you."
