The First Friday Network is a monthly free business networking event held on various Fridays with meetings across the country, including: East Sussex, West Sussex, Surrey, Kent and Hampshire.

The First Friday Network was started by Steve Wilson, of Wilson Design Associates, in Chichesterin March 2003 for those people who didn't want either an early morning breakfast or a weekly commitment. 

The Eastbourne group has been running for 4 years and has seen a total of over 600 different businesses attend the events. All the networks are aligned to each other but are run by local business people, with local business knowledge, serving the business community by way of offering a venue to network, promote, share and exchange ideas. The format of the meetings has really grabbed everyone’s attention because of the relaxed and welcoming atmosphere that is always present. The network has grown by word-of-mouth over the last few years from a local event into a regional, and hopefully in time, a national organisation!

There is no membership fee and there is no need to book to attend First Friday, you can come along and join the group whenever you like. You are welcome to bring business cards and any publicity material for your business; this will be displayed for you at the event.

Edeal host the Eastbourne meeting which is held from 12.30pm to 2.30pm on the First Friday of every month.

The Eastbourne meetings have welcomed a number of guest speakers over the years covering subjects such as Intellectual property rights, use of social media and use of promotional videos to promote your business. 

Please come along and join this friendly group
