Of course! While BNL is a membership organisation, we don’t ask you to commit without seeing what we’re all about. As an introductory offer, non-members can attend as many visits during 2018 and now 2019 as a visitor, so you can meet our members and experience the atmosphere of our meetings for yourself. Once you get to know our business owners and see exactly how passionate they are about networking and doing business, you’ll be signing up in no time.

How Much Does Joining BNL Cost?

Why Is BNL Different From Other London Networking Groups?
At BNL, the majority of our members attend or belong to other business networking groups, creating an extensive net of contacts for each of our members. Our networking events do not aim to ‘lock out’ others, but instead encourages collaboration and networking built on trust and mutual relationships. We provide a platform for each of our members to not only promote their own business, but work together to support other members in growing their business through referrals and collaborations. Every member of BNL has applied and been reviewed to ensure they are the right fit for the organisation – people who are serious about making connections, developing them and adding value to those connections.
