Cobblers team up with Royal & Derngate, Silverstone and Towcester racecourse to create Northamptonshire Means Business

25 January 2018

Northampton Town Football Club have joined forces with the Royal & Derngate, Silverstone and Towcester racecourse to create Northamptonshire Means Business.

Northamptonshire Means Business is a unique, invitation only B2B (Business to Business) club that brings together the key decision makers from businesses across Northamptonshire and sees the four founding members hosting events at their venues.

The first such event, kindly sponsored by PTS Training and Apprenticeships, is being held at Sixfields on Tuesday February 13th at Northampton Town's Sky Bet League 1 match with Gillingham, and is already full!

The networking event will be held in the Cave & Sons Boardroom at Sixfields before the Gillingham game, and will be followed by a stadium tour and hospitality at the match later in the evening.

"We are delighted with how much interest there is in this initial event," said Commercial and Marketing manager Caroline Lucy.

"The Northamptonshire Means Business club is similar to another networking club I have previously set up which became a huge success. It is different to other networking/business clubs as it is for key decision makers from businesses who have a vested interest in the region, have a turnover upwards of £250,000 and have a base/branch here in Northamptonshire. The club will meet at the four founding member venues to share best practices, be a positive mentor to other businesses whilst also becoming a 'must' for businesses moving into the region and will work to bring positive business news to the region which could embrace and learn from our working relationship with China.

"There is so much to be proud of in Northamptonshire and by bringing everyone together like this we can show just how much this county has going for it.

"We are very proud to be linking up with the Royal & Derngate, Silverstone and Towcester racecourse for Northamptonshire Means Business. It shows not just how much business strength there is in Northamptonshire, but that the county is a proud centre of sporting excellence.

"This initial event was full within days and that illustrates how keen all of those involved are to work together which is very exciting.

"We would like to thank our event sponsor PTS Training and Apprenticeships for their support at the launch, our NMB partners Silverstone, Towcester Racecourse and the Royal & Derngate and we wish everyone a fantastic evening at Sixfields for this launch event."
