Events

Mold Business Forum aims to hold four events per year each
for Full Members and Associate Members.

These include our annual Showcase Event where stands are available (for a small charge) for companies to exhibit their services or products but which is free to attend as a visitor. Organisations often host an event and provide light refreshments and a speaker presents a talk on a relevant topic to the MBF community. Each event is widely advertised through local media, flyers and via the internet, and the MBF and Chamber of Commerce websites. We recognise that business people have different needs and interests and we are keen to identify the issues of concern so that we can provide a series of topical and useful sessions. We welcome suggestions from the membership and offers to host such events.

With our two types of membership, we tailor our events to suite both groups. Some meetings will be open to all members (both Full and Associate Members) and some will be focussed exclusively on one or the other group. This way, the MBF can provide the appropriate levels of benefits to members in accordance with the relevant rate of subscription fees.   Any publicity will clearly state for whom each event is to be provided and if any discretionary fees are applicable. Some events will be free to attend and some will have a small charge (mostly to cover costs). If anything is unclear, please email admin@moldbusinessforum.wales for clarification and/or further details.
