BaseConnect, the networking platform for leading technology innovators involved in the Warrington area, has chalked up its 100th member just six months after launching.

The network, which meets at best practice seminars, networking events and workshops at The Base, the town’s advanced manufacturing and engineering hub in Dallam Lane, has welcomed Glow New Media as its hundredth member – and organisers say the target is now to hit one hundred and fifty active participants.

“The speed of growth and the energy at our events tells you everything about the dynamism of the Warrington economy,” said Sylvie Morton, business development manager of Langtree, who manage The Base on behalf of Warrington & Co.

“The level of inter-trading between members is the most pleasing aspect of what we’ve achieved so far and Glow New Media’s expertise can only add to the mix.”

Explaining his reasons for joining, Phil Blything of Glow said: “Much of our own technical innovation and product development has come from collaboration and networks such as BaseConnect plug us in to so many great brains.  The events are always very well attended and there’s a real buzz about the place.  I’d advise anyone to join and get stuck in.”

The network is free to join for any business involved in the Warrington area and is a platform where members can

  • Become part of The Base community
  • Check and register for events
  • Keep up to date with news related to The Base and the sector
  • Contact other members and network with them

The next event for BaseConnect is on Wednesday 4th October at 1.30pm at The Base, with a discussion entitled ‘Digitalisation changes everything’ led by the IET and Siemens.  Directors of ambitious SMEs involved in the Warrington area are encouraged to attend by registering as a member of BaseConnect at and then will be able to reserve their place.
