There is a feeling in the air that Bournemouth is currently in one of its most prosperous years in decades, from the news earlier this year that our seaside town is in the top 5 for 10% employment growth to the recent promotion of our beloved Cherries to the Premiere League, things certainly seem to be coming up Bournemouth!
This is also reflected in the amount of people who regularly attend our networking events as our numbers have continued to increase, with our last networking event attracting over 90 people compared to 60 attendees this time a year ago. At our meetings there is certainly a palpable buzz as established businesses are in the midst of some of their most successful periods ever whilst we are frequently delighted to see the amount of new start-ups which also attend our events.
With Bournemouth now a Premiere League town there will be even more business opportunities available and it will be up to our local businesses to make the most of the kind of wealth and exposure the Premiere League brings; as legions of fans from across the UK will visit Bournemouth to see their team face the mighty Cherries!
On the 7th of May we will be hosting our next event at the Hallmark Hotel which promises to be another fantastic morning of networking – it will be interesting to hear how our members feel about AFC Bournemouth’s promotion and how it will affect their business. Alongside this it will be great to hear whether you too feel business is booming in Bournemouth!
See you all on the 7th.
