Member events

Members of the Bristol & West of England Initiative have the opportunity to join us and meet fellow members at a variety of regular and special events.

Initiative Member Meetings

Initiative Members meet formally four times a year in person, at our quarterly evening meetings to collaborate with other influential business and community leaders, hear an overview of the wider activity that is happening across the city region, and to network and engage with fellow members. 

Initiative Roundtable Series 

The Bristol Initiative hosts a series of member led roundtables which focus on key local issues in the region. Members have the opportunity to host these roundtables to engage with fellow business leaders across the region to express their views on local and regional issues; views which can subsequently be represented by us at key strategic and local partnerships. 

Member Networking Events 

Throughout the year, we offer members to opportunity to visit and engage with interesting and unique areas of the city, showcasing developments that often are not open to the public yet and providing the opportunity to network with industry leaders. Previous events include; a tour around Bristol Port, a breakfast event at the Bristol Zoo and a tour around the site of the new Bristol Arena.
