A Business After Five (BA5) event is an informal occasion to network while expanding your horizons and knowledge of other businesses.

BA5 events are generally hosted by a member organisation and present the opportunity for the host business to promote themselves and their services or products. In the past these events have been held in factories, offices, museums, workshops, warehouses, TV and radio stations, training centres - even on ships at Bluff port and boats at sea. BA5 events are usually free for members to attend but occasionally there may be a minimal cost.

Please contact us if you are interested in hosting a BA5, it is an excellent way to showcase your business.

Look out for the following BA5s in 2020:

  • Cancer Society
  • Fi Innovations
  • Miss Tradie
  • Southland Farm Machinery, Metalon South
  • Emergency Management Southland
