20/20 Summer Events & Parties
20/20 Club hosts various B2B speed networking events in a calendar year, each uniquely headlined with a different event theme which consequently brings together like-minded individuals from both sides of the buyer-supplier fence. All buyers and suppliers are targeted and qualified to ensure they fit in with the specific 20/20 event and its theme (eg: 20/20 ‘Christmas Parties’). Many multi-faceted suppliers choose to invest in securing table stands at a selection of 20/20 Club events because of the comparative cost and many different buyers that they’ll meet.
