Retford b4b is for businesses of all types: whether you’re a business professional, retailer, tradesperson, or otherwise - all are welcome.



To encourage local business trading and referrals. It’s a chance to meet other local business owners and representatives, make new acquaintances and potentially pick up new business - so bring plenty of business cards! 

It’s also a much valued way to hear speakers whose presentations are varied and which offer useful information and advice to help you and your business.



As well as attendees, there will also be a guest speaker or two at each event. Come along and find out who! (speaker details will be on our email invitations and on the event booking site after invitations have been sent out).



Normally bi-monthly, but currently there are no forthcoming dates as we are taking a break.



We alternate between Retford Enterprise Centre and the Idle Valley Nature Rural Learning Centre - two great venues - directions via the booking site once invitations have been sent out.

Please contact any of the organisers below if you are not on our emailing list and would like to receive an invitation.
