MDA Innovation Network - Covid-19 Update

Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the MDA Business Breakfast schedule for 2020 has changed.  

During this time the MDA will continue to support the cross-border business community by hosting ‘virtual’ versions of the MDA Business Breakfast online.

The first virtual event will take place on Tuesday 30th June at noon. The event has been sponsored by Picturehouse Films and over 150 cross-border businesses have registered.

The second virtual event is being planned for the end August 2020.  If you wish to get involved, request a pitch slot  or sponsor the next event  please email mda@cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk for more information.  

All future events will be reviewed in September and depending on government guidance, we will make plans to resume the MDA Innovation Network Business Breakfast events.   We will update the web page with any future developments.

MDA Innovation Network

The MDA Innovation Network was launched in October 2010 to support local businesses in the Mersey Dee area. At the time businesses on both sides of the border faced economic and commercial challenges, in support of these challenges the Innovation Network was born.

A series of bi-monthly business breakfasts take place five to six times per year with the ultimate aim of improving business performance, by providing business to business networking opportunities and information on regional and national initiatives.

Since 2010 over 7000 delegates have attended one of our events with the average attendance of 170 delegates per event.

Get involved in one of the most innovative and effective networks across the North Wales/North West border area.

How to get involved

Each event is free of charge to businesses and we also offer some free exhibition space for delegates to showcase their business. 

The hour long events take place from 8.30am until 9.30am at various cross border locations.  The format of the event is very informal with approximately 40 minutes taken up by networking and a pitch/speaker section for 20 minutes.

Business sponsors are sourced for each event to cover the costs of refreshments for businesses.  If you are interested in sponsoring us or have any other queries, please contact us on 0151 356 6567 or by using the options on the contact us page.
