4Networking (4N) gives you the opportunity to network with business people right across the UK, here on this site and at networking meetings.
Most of our members are owners of SME businesses, who are looking to connect and do business. We lay on regular networking meetings in most major towns and cities around the UK – there are 250+ 4Networking groups and in total we run 5000+ meetings each year.
Elsewhere on this site, you’ll find more information about all these aspects of what 4N is all about:
If we don’t know who you are, we can’t help you to network with other people! By registering, you are taking the first step to being able to connect with the tens of thousands of people who have found 4N a useful way to contact people and do business.
Basic registration is free, quick and easy, and only asks you for the minimum information required to get started. Register here

Choose from FREE basic online membership OR take advantage of our Passport membership joining options. You can only attend up to 2 meetings before becoming a Passport member. Our best Passport membership offers are available before or at your first meeting:
These options are available as soon as you have registered as an 'Online only' member on the site by going here: Alternatively, you will be offered these three Passport membership options at your first 4N visitor meeting. This gives you immediate access to ALL 4Networking groups.
Available at your second meeting or beyond this are these Passport membership options:
Book your first meeting here. Then choose the meeting you would like to attend and click Book Now. Remember to bring plenty of business cards, cash to cover meeting costs (Breakfast, Lunch and Evening events £15), a roller banner if you have one, and a smile...

All 4N meetings are closed promptly on our system (Breakfast by 5pm the same day, Lunch and Evenings by 10am the following day) at which point you will receive an email with a link to your account where you can access and print your PDF receipt. If you do not receive this email promptly, here’s how you can access your receipt yourself:
If you're already registered on the 4N site, you can upgrade to paid membership at any time. The joining options available at a second 4N meeting are open to you at all times, even after your two visitor meetings. And upgrading to Online Unlimited membership from Online Only membership can be done at any time. To upgrade, please visit the Membership Upgrade Page.
Renewing your membership: At all times you can see on your membership profile how many paid membership days you have remaining. If you're already a Passport Member, you have four continuous membership renewal options -
You can renew your membership by visiting the Membership Upgrade page when you are logged in.
Membership renewal terms: To be eligible for any of these continuous membership options there must be no break in membership. By renewing your 4Networking Passport membership by debit/credit card you are also agreeing that future renewals can be collected automatically from the same card. At least one month’s notice is required to cancel, by email to email@example.com. If you cancel payment without providing one month’s notice in writing or wish to cancel immediately after a renewal payment has been taken, then you will be charged a £50 administration fee. If payment ceases and your membership lapses, you have a choice of 3 rejoining options:
If your membership days have been extended through receiving Invite a Friend days or as a result of team membership, then the renewal collection dates will reflect these changes.
If Continuous Membership renewal payment fails as a result of a debit/credit card no longer being active or a change of card expiry date, 4Networking will contact you to request updated card details. If you know that you have been issued with a new card since your last payment to us, you can update your card details on this site.
In order to ensure that members who invest in Continuous Passport membership feel that this is rewarded, we do have some restrictions in place in relation to accessing 4N meetings once your Passport membership has expired.
You are only able to attend a 4N meeting again as a non-Passport member visitor once a minimum period of six months has elapsed since your Passport membership expired. At that point, your membership will be reset automatically to 'RV' status (Returning Visitor).
Once that has happened, you can visit one meeting only as a visitor, as you will already be familiar with the format and style of 4Networking meetings. You can rejoin at that meeting.
If you have used your one Returning Visitor meeting allocation but chosen not to rejoin, the process begins again ie you can attend a 4N meeting again as a visitor once a minimum period of six months has elapsed since your last visit.
Yes! If you want to rejoin as a Passport member before the six-month no-visit period has been completed, no problem. You can rejoin online at any time by going to
If you have previously been a Passport member at any point in the past, you are most welcome to rejoin at any time. As referred to in the section about membership renewal, you have a choice of 3 rejoining options if you have a break in Passport membership:
If your Passport membership has lapsed, you can continue to be an Online Only member and therefore can access your profile on the 4Networking site.
For all types of initial Passport membership ie 12 months, 6 months, 3 months, monthly, Online Unlimited or promotional offers, no cancellation or refund is possible once payment has been processed.
For all types of 4Networking Continuous Membership, at least 30 days’ notice is required in writing to cancel your membership. This notice period is the 30 days prior to the expiry date of the current term of your Continuous Membership. Notice must be given by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. 4Networking will automatically acknowledge your cancellation email by return email. If you do not receive this email and cannot provide it to us on request, your cancellation will not be valid.
If you wish to cancel membership after the 30 days’ notice period has expired or immediately after a Continuous Membership payment has been taken, this is possible but you will be charged an administration fee of £35+VAT (£42.00 inc VAT). Any refund due will be paid no later than 10 days after the refund has been requested. The refund will be the membership fee that was paid less the £35+VAT administration fee.
Yes. Only the person who sent or received the Personal Message can view it.
You may have noticed that on the 4Networking site you now have a network ranking. This appears on your dashboard page.
Every person registered on the 4Networking site now has a network ranking.
This is a general indicator as to how active a networker you are. In the background, the website is analysing your networking activity and, put simply, the more active a networker you are, the higher your ranking.
Your ranking is determined by your networking activity in 4Networking over the last three months.
There are many different networking activities used to calculate your ranking. This gives you an excellent range of opportunities to improve your network ranking position:
Your network ranking is a useful indicator of yours and your fellow members level of activity as a 4Networking member.
If you’re an active networker, you are likely to be:
On that basis, if you have a good network ranking, you’re someone who people will value getting to know.
So, take a look at your current ranking and think of ways in which you can make it to #1!
Each person’s ranking is updated daily. However, one day or even one week’s activity is unlikely to result in a significant change to your position.
Yes! There is one aspect which will actively reduce your ranking position:
Being a 'no-show' at a meeting.
If you have confirmed your attendance at an upcoming meeting and then don't attend, this is disruptive to the smooth running of the meeting. The same applies if you don't respond to meeting confirmation calls or emails from the team. On the basis of your confirmation, the venue layout and catering will have been set up accordingly. A no-show upsets all that and can lead to extra cost incurred from the venue. On that basis, it will lose you network ranking points and suppress your ranking position.
To avoid this, if at the last minute you can't attend a 4N meeting you've confirmed that you'll attend (and we get it, stuff happens), then please just let someone on the group's meeting team know with a quick call or text, thanks!
