FM North returned with a bang in January business networking with 95 registered attendees for the first event of 2023. Professionals from the Facilities, Cleaning and Construction sectors from across the UK came together to network at The Lawn Club, located in Spinningfields in the heart of Manchester’s financial district. Hosted by Daniel Cross of Tennant Company, and Ian Perton of CSS Facilities Ltd, the January event was kindly sponsored by Paul Benson of Bunzle UK and Ireland who support businesses all over the world with a variety of products that are essential for their customers in the successful operation of their businesses, and Nicola Williams of innovative cleaning products supplier Wecovi.
Each FM North event is completely funded by the sponsor, and in return that company is able to promote itself to a wide and growing audience of potential customers, suppliers and business contacts via the FM North database and rising LinkedIn group membership, which currently stands at just over 2,700 members. FM North returns to The Lawn Club, Spinningfields, Manchester on Wednesday 22 February.
