Fruits in Suits®

Network whilst enjoying canapés and drinks at various events across Sydney when regulations allow. Through 2020 and into 2021, Fruits has been hosted on Zoom. As soon as NSW Government regulations allow in-person events, we’ll be ready to have you join us.

Save the date – bring your friends, colleagues and business cards. It’s the place to be for social networking. We know you’ll love it!

What’s it about?

‘Fruits’ as it’s fondly known, has been running since 1996 and is the original of many so-named events in the Asia-Pacific.

It is a monthly social networking event held on the third Thursday of every month between 6pm – 9pm.

SGLBA welcomes members of the LGBTIQ community and their allies to all its events.

Venue’s dress code / Access

Business attire: Business / Smart casual (no shorts / thongs).

Access to the first floor is via stairs or lift to the side of the ground floor restaurant.

Why attend?

It is an ideal opportunity to increase your business network in a social setting or meet friends or colleagues after work.  

If you’re a Networker member or above, you can promote your business.

Anyone can seek or advertise services on the Bulletin board, or win a prize from the member, general, or business card draw.  Sponsor an event, or donate a prize to promote your business beyond the event itself.
