Branch Event

IoD Manchester - Last Friday Symposium, September 2018

28 Sep 2018
Grafene, Manchester

Every last Friday of the month, the IoD Manchester committee will get together for informal drinks.

All members are invited to join us. The event is very informal, with a pay bar. The intention is to allow us all to celebrate the successes of the month (and perhaps put the less successful aspects behind us), meeting with like-minded individuals in an informal setting.

We will meet at Grafene Manchester on  6, 55 King Street, Manchester M2 4LQ, at 5.30pm

Booking will allow us to get a sense of numbers and we will also send you contact numbers for your hosts.
