London networking event - networking evening at the Whitechapel Gallery

Whitechapel Gallery
77-82 Whitechapel High Street
London, E1 7QX

Whitechapel Gallery

Urbano holds an evening networking event each month which are famously relaxed and informal events, with facilitated networking and a unique online Event Group for post-event networking. Everyone is also given an attendee sheet with the details of every company and their representatives. Non-members always welcome.

Attendees are drawn from a range of sectors and sizes of companies, from professionals and creatives, directors and managers, large corporates and SMEs, all looking to network over a glass of wine with a friendly crowd of interested contacts.

Our hosts for our July networking evening is the Whitechapel Gallery, with catering and drinks supplied by Ampersand Catering. Each attendee gets a couple of glasses of wine free, with canapes to share and enjoy.


The networking starts at 6pm and Urbano's MD Mark Herring will help you find interesting contacts with a roomful of business owners, directors, partners and senior corporates that our monthly evening events attract.

Urbano evenings are famously relaxed and the conversations friendly and natural. The mix is diverse and 'selling' is frowned upon. No rapid-fire two-minute mini-presentations or stiff handshakes as you rush around the room.

Urbano's unique online networking toolkit means you don't necessarily have to have spoken to everyone in the room. You will always stay connected online through the event group (even non-members) and so you can network at your own pace and with those you would like to meet and stay connected with after the event.

The menu Ampersand Catering have provided for us will include:

Bright red meat fruit with black shiso leaf

Tomato macaroon with basil mousse

Smoked Chicken, Avocado & Mango Salad on a Tortilla Croute with Crème Fraiche & Coriander

Crayfish, Avocado & Cucumber Rice Paper Rolls

Traditional Ampersand Mini Burger with Tomato Salsa, American Mustard & Cheddar

Baby Brioche Filled with Wild Mushrooms & Lemon Hollandaise

Slow cooked salmon fillet wrapped in black seaweed on a pipette of gin and tonic dressing

Brightly coloured cake pop (banoffee pie centre) 

Ampersand Catering's Urbano Profile:


    “Both Kate and I really enjoyed our first Urbano evening networking event at Buddha Bar. All very relaxed and, dare I say it, fun. Never thought I'd say that about a networking event!

    So much so we have decided to become Urbano members. The mix and quality of events, companies, and the relaxed approach suits us. We're really looking forward to being a part of Urbano."

    "Urbano evening events are the best nights of networking I have ever had. I have been to hundreds of events but the mix of people and connections I make are always brilliant for me and my business. Truly the most fun and productive nights EVER. And you can quote me on that.”
