Cluster Connect


Developing strong cluster connections

CLUSTER CONNECT brings together member companies to facilitate introductions and the sharing business of information and opportunities in a friendly and informal atmosphere.

Members of NEPIC have access to a wide network of businesses in and around the North East and these free-to-attend monthly sessions allow you to meet with our like-minded members.

Held on the first Thursday of each month between 8am-10am, the meeting includes refreshments and member introductions, followed by an informal networking session.

Host Cluster Connect

Would you be interested in highlighting your business to the NEPIC membership through host-sponsorship of a Cluster Connect meeting?

Cluster Connect is rotated between the North and South of the region. We are always happy to talk to companies interested in becoming one of our host-sponsors. There isn’t a charge – all we ask is that your premises are easily accessible and that you have the facilities to host and supply light breakfast refreshments to ~50 guests.

Hosts, both past and future, include:
