Propertyface2face was established in 2008, as our founder David Stewart realised that there was a ‘gap’ in the market for a dedicated networking group for East Midlands based property professionals.
After 15 years of running our Propertyface2face networking events at high quality venues, we have become one of the most successful networking groups in Nottingham, with our bi-monthly Curry Club lunch events attracting around 60 property and finance professionals which increases to over 120 for our Christmas party.
Our continued popularity post-pandemic, meant that the time was right to branch out with a Leicester group in 2022. Then earlier this year we launched in Derby too, so we’re now covering the entire East Midlands, all with the same Curry Club format.
Our Curry Club Event Format Is As Follows:
- Always a relaxed, informal approach to networking
- A brief speech from our sponsor or an industry expert
- High quality venues with great food, service and surroundings
- A great value for money, three course Indian fine dining meal (£35.00)
- No membership fees to pay, just the cost of your lunch
- Access to the guest list prior to each event
- It’s always the same high-quality venue, so it’s easy to find us
- No referral expectations, you are free to come and go as you please
