February Latest News / 7th February 2017

In the blink of an eye, we’re already in February and with Christmas seeming like another lifetime ago, we are excited to tell you all about Net XP’s new year; partnerships have been formed, networking has been busier than ever, and we’ve been building towards our biggest event yet on March 16th at the East Sussex National in Uckfield.

New exhibitor business partnerships in Hastings and London have been forged with Hastings Shout and YBC which is incredibly exciting news, and Net XP have been networking across Sussex by going to Basepoint Networking Hubs, The Platinum Business Club, First Friday Networking, The Curry Club Brighton and even braving the early mornings with Juice FM Breakfast Club.


Net XP are also pleased to announce that we have confirmed venues for the rest of the year, along with a special business partnership with Basepoint Crawley in June. The event ‘Pool Party’, is one not to be missed and details about it will be released soon after our event on March 16th.

With just over a month to go until our March expo, we are thrilled at the arrival of our fantastic looking printed show guide, which has shaped up wonderfully. We must thank Rather Fine Design and Focus All Media for delivering such an optimum service and Basepoint Business Centre for sponsoring the guide. It is now being hand delivered across Sussex to key areas to help the event grow in Uckfield, Crawley, Burgess Hill and Hastings to ensure it is the biggest one yet! We also have Ridgeview Wine Estate to thank for the pre-networking event at their beautiful winery, which not only was fantastic for forming connections, but also taught those that attended a lot about the fine art of wine making.

Sonny Cutting, founder of Net XP has been busy planning and organising all sorts for the event and is looking forward to the big day. With lots still in the works, the excitement bubbling away for the event to come is palpable! Hastings Shout, a fun business we found on Facebook whilst searching for local businesses to connect with, will be presenting an award to a lucky exhibitor at the March 16th Expo at the East Sussex National. Without giving too much away, this award has a ‘Customer Service’ theme, reflecting Net XP’s belief in its importance at the core of every business. Make sure you’re there to find out more! The monthly Seagull in Bexhill also caught Net XP’s eye on Facebook with its family story of Sonny the Seagull, making us chuckle. It was an excellent ‘ice breaker’ to meet their company, further expanding our networking circle.

The enticing lunch menu from the East Sussex National has now been added to the Net XP site meaning you can leave those limp sandwiches at home and enjoy a well-deserved meal from an exquisite menu. Exhibitors have a stunning choice of lunches to choose from, even a low carb offering with rocket, avocado & cherry tomatoes salad, crispy quinoa, and Greek yoghurt dressing. Please book via the EVENTS section on the website and payment is required upfront to book your lunch orders. There are 4 options and these should suit every palette.

Look out for next month’s newsletter which will tell you all about the new gamification addition to the website where you can play quizzes, competitions and puzzles to win points to gain badges, rewards and prizes, all to help your business work out the intricacies of networking. Until then, we hope you have a wonderful month and we look forward to seeing all your faces on March 16th!
