A little about our history

RIBN was formed in 2009 by a group of just 5 people. Learn a little about our history below...
  • 2015First evening networking event launched
    RIBN announced that their first official evening networking event in Rugby would be taking place in May. This gives members and their guests the opportunity to network in a relaxed environment at a time of day that may be more convenient for some of their guests.
  • 2013Grew membership to over 25 registered members
    The membership of the group continues to grow organically. Some members find out about the group through this website and others are invited by existing members.
  • 2012Grew our membership to over 20 registered members
    RIBN held a visitors open day early in 2012 and this attracted several new members, which added to the group's expertise and networking value.
  • 2011Moved venue to St Andrews FC Rugby Club
    After experimenting with several different venues, the RIBN committee decided on St Andrews FC Rugby Club in Hillmorton in Rugby as the new venue for the breakfast meeting, which it has been held at ever since. It's easy to get to, has plenty of free parking and the breakfasts are great!
  • 2009RIBN formed, originally at Hillmorton Hotel
    Early in 2009, 5 members who belonged to another fee paying networking group broke away and wanted to start their own networking group that was less pressured and formal. The first venue was Hillmorton Hotel.
