Business Networking Events in Brighton and Hove

You’re about to come to one of the best business networking events in Brighton and Hove. So, what happens at Toast Networking?

Here’s your lowdown:

Toast Networking at the Modelo Lounge, 145 Church Road Hove


Officially, the event starts from 7.30am but you may want to take a tip from our Toasties and arrive a little earlier. Not only can you dive into a much-needed cup of tea or coffee, you’ll have more time to get to know your fellow networkers.

We’ll make sure you’re given a very warm welcome and that you’re introduced to Toast members and other guests.

Business Card Table

Leave some business cards on the table as you come in. And, help yourself to others’ cards, too. You’re now building your Toast network.


Everyone looks forward to breakfast at 7.45am (or thereabouts). And, no wonder. It’s amazing. Breakfast at the Modelo Lounge contributes to Toast being totally unlike any other business networking events in Brighton and Hove. Take your pick from the delectable buffet spread in front of you and enjoy a hearty way to start the day, with members and guests.

WWW Round

It’s time to sell yourself.

  • Who are you?
  • What’s your business?
  • Who would you like to meet?

This is your opportunity, over just 60 seconds, to give THE absolute best account of yourself. Not sure? No problem. Hop over to our Easy Guide to Your 60-second Pitch for some top tips.

10-Minute Presentation

8.20am. It’s amazing how much you can learn in 10 minutes. Members use this time to present their businesses in more depth, or to offer useful tips and guidance to others. This could be YOU.

Bit of Business

8.30am. It’s time to BOB. Are you bobbing? Our Bit of Business round is about leads, referrals, thanks and appreciation for work done within the group. Or, business passed to friends, family and associates outside Toast.

As a member or guest, how can YOU support someone else’s local business? Do you know someone who could benefit from members’ services? Passing leads and referrals is what makes Toast Networking thrive.

Admin/Any Other Business

8.40am. There’s always something good going on. Here’s where we learn about upcoming social events, or anything that we need to know about in Toast Networking.

It’s Time to Go

8.45am. Is that the time already? Off for a busy day’s work. Don’t forget to arrange your elevenses with fellow Toast members. These one-to-one meetings enable you to find out what you both do. And, to recommend him or her to other people.

As you can see, not all business networking events in Brighton and Hove are the same. Book your guest place here. We’re really looking forward to meeting you.
