I have attended and sponsored a number of MET Events Lunches over thett years and always found them to be informative, useful and well-organised. Julie delivers a high-quality event with attendees that you really want to meet and speakers that add to the experience. I’m very excited that the events are back for 2022!!
MET Events has proven to be an invaluable forum for both networking and discovering what is happening in our region across the many development sectors that Align Property Partners operates within.
Julie provides a personal yet thoroughly professional service, through identifying potential areas of interest, organising the appropriate venue, ensuring great refreshments are available and most importantly reaching out to those who can help our business grow. It has provided a welcome opportunity to establish our business credentials in the region
Testimony to this has been our willingness to sponsor events over the years.
I am certainly looking forward to our business playing an active part within MET Events future functions and especially continuing to enjoy Julie’s hospitality

Any businesses which regularly attends networking events need to review the effectiveness of those events. Garbutt & Elliott have found that these events to be useful and effective as an introduction to company decision makers in a professional, but relaxed environment. I would have no hesitation in strongly recommending these events to any SME business who are reviewing their networking opportunities”

From Futureworks’ (Yorkshire) point of view, the lunchtime event provided a first class opportunity to network with likeminded business individuals in relaxed surroundings. The introduction the company was afforded to make, along with the discussion over lunch, helped raise awareness of my business and what it can provide to a related audience.
The proof is in the pudding (pardon the pun) and many conversations and meetings took place after the event which generated from the connections made as a result.

Great networking events providing the opportunity to make connections. Their events are hosted at fantastic venues with interesting and relevant speakers. Importantly, they work hard to provide a relaxed environment and set everything in place to get you talking with the right people to give you the perfect opportunity to make connections for the good of your business

The Transport for the North event was a triumph. Many congratulations on such a powerful and constructive contribution (a) to understanding the process and scope of the proposed immediate Northern train franchise service improvements and (b) to the debate about what the future should hold beyond the presently proposed train and train service changes, good as they will be in their own right. Everyone to whom I spoke came away better informed and clearer about where some of the jigsaw puzzle pieces that should form the whole picture of train services in The North should fit. We must all hope that those individual pieces are competent to do what they are supposed to. Again my thanks for an excellent and timely event.

Having recently opened our new office, we needed to quickly reach out to the businesses to introduce the company and ourselves. Having met with Julie and learning more about what the events offer and the gravitas it has in the local business community, I had no hesitation in partnering with them to host our office launch in March. From sourcing the venue to inviting guests, Julie and Lorraine assisted us every step of the way and ensured our launch night was a great success. I can wholeheartedly say that these events made a huge difference to our business in the early days of trading in the new office and we now have many strong, local contacts. We have just agreed to sponsor another event later in the year, which amplifies the above.

Shulmans were very pleased to have sponsored and hosted the “Creation of the Northern Powerhouse” even. The quality of the speakers scheduled to appear ensured a full house and a lively debate on this key subject, which is so important to our region.

When we launched an NJL Consulting office in Leeds we needed to maximise our exposure to property industry professionals. MET Events provided the ideal platform to do this – from a cost, profile and attendee perspective. As sole sponsor of the event we gained access to high profile panel members and selected guests – well worth the investment. The MET Events provided invaluable support in making the event a success.
