BEN Club (British Enterprise Network Club) is a network of private and public sector professionals across the UK. As an organisation we exist to increase trade potential to the UK by using a range of networking, seminars, events and trade delegations which bring people together in order to grow and further relationships and business.
BEN Club provides the means by which its members can promote their own and each others’ businesses for their mutual benefit; to provide business support for each other; to generate business referrals and create new commercial opportunities for each other; and to help each other to develop and grow their individual businesses.
BEN Club provides a variety of promotional opportunities for the benefit of its members, including networking, forums, presentations, exhibitions and other events at which members can meet or be recommended to potential new associates, suppliers, or customers/clients; plus structured external online and offline marketing activities for ongoing promotion of BEN Club member-businesses to the public and the regional business community.
