THE latest in the Invest Middlesbrough Breakfast Exchange for networking businesses takes place in Middlesbrough Town Hall next month.

The free networking session provides businesses with an opportunity to meet up on a less formal basis, chat and share, learn more about Middlesbrough’s ambitious regeneration plans and do business.

The Breakfast Exchange gets under way at 7.30m, with the spotlight at January’s event on the newly-launched Albert North project.

Councillor Lewis Young, Middlesbrough Council’s executive member for economic development and infrastructure, said: “A vibrant, thriving city centre economy is crucial to Middlesbrough’s future success and growth.

“That’s why the Breakfast Exchanges have become so popular as an informal forum in which find out what’s happening across Middlesbrough, share ideas and forge new partnerships.”

The next event takes place at the town hall on Thursday, January 17 from 7.30am to 9.30am.
