    Platform Networking- Women’s Business Networking in Sheffield

    Manchester Grad Fair 2018

    Wednesday 9th May


    This is one of the largest graduate recruitment fairs in the UK, with more than 140 exhibitors in attendance. Whether you’re looking to work with SMEs, the public sector or something else entirely, this is a perfect opportunity to narrow down your options and get a foot on the career ladder of the creative jobs of your choice!

    The event takes place in the University of Manchester’s Armitage Centre, located on campus in the residential area. However, it is within travelling distance of several other universities, and there are excellent public transport links to the event as well. Entry to the fair is free; visit the Eventbrite page to register.

    Buy Yorkshire 2018

    Billed as the North’s biggest B2B conference and exhibition, this is a great way to learn more about local businesses and their needs. The event offers 200 stands, 4000 delegates and talks on topics like content marketing, consumer engagement and the evolution of hacking.

    Buy Yorkshire 2018 runs over one day at the Leeds First Direct Arena. It is powered by The Yorkshire Mafia, the most active business networking group outside of London. Entry is free, though access to seminars, panels and workshops is on a first-come first-serve basis. Register now to avoid disappointment.
