Suffolk Property Drinks is a free networking event aimed at bringing professionals from across the property and construction sector together for informal networking.

The inaugural Suffolk Property Drinks saw more than 100 people attend, with a mixture of professionals from across the sector.

Having attended the Norfolk Property Drinks, Clare Friel of Friel Consulting identified that a similar gathering would be a great addition to the Suffolk property and construction calendar. Matt Goakes of Lovell Partnerships who organises the Norfolk event was happy to collaborate to get the Suffolk Property Drinks off the ground.

Ms Friel said: “I am pleased, It was realy well attended.

“We had solicitors and accountants, main contractors and sub contractors, a wide range of people who came along. It was nice seeing so many different people.

“The response to the launch event has been very positive with many attendees commenting that an event like this has been long overdue. There was also refreshing feedback from attendees who had made new and relevant connections on the evening.”

“After Friday’s successful launch, this event will be held on the last Friday of every month at the Kbar from 4pm – 7pm.”
