Our monthly Member Mingles are a chance to meet, mingle and network with  fellow members and MRBTA staff in a social setting:

  • Build business to business contacts and partnerships
  • Hear the latest tourism happenings
  • A chance to catch up, see new product offerings or simply enjoy our own region and all its delights

We meet each month (usually on a Wednesday night) at a different member venue throughout the region, watch this space or read your e-news for your next invitation!

Keen to host?

We are always on the lookout for new host venues or businesses that would like to potentially partner up and co-host with their neighbours or member associates.

Register your interest here!
