Incredible Business SPEED! Networking – Bristol

March 24 @ 7:30 am - 12:00 pm


Sharing is caring!

Meet new faces and make important contacts On Friday, March 24th, 2023 at the Bristol Train Station event center as you participate in a structured business networking event with a system designed to ensure you meet a large number of business professionals face to face. During this event, participants will follow an ordered schedule to meet 7 other people at a time, per table, over 12 rounds. Participants will deliver their 1 minute introductions to each other, as well as pass out cards and flyers during each round.

This is like “Speed Dating For Business” – Imagine how long it would take to cold call, get through the gatekeepers, meet the decision makers, chat face-to-face and get personal contact information at almost 100 businesses? Could you do it in 4 hours? This is the beauty of speed networking, and their is no better way to reach so many people that matter in one morning!

There will be a door prize drawing at the conclusion of this event and all participants are highly encouraged to bring a door prize for the drawing if they wish. Donations for the drawing will receive a public acknowledgement to the group.

Breakfast, snacks and drinks will be provided during the event. You are also welcome to bring your own food and non-alcoholic drinks to the event.

We will start on time – please plan to arrive promptly to Register (Registration opens at 7:30am), enjoy Breakfast and Pre-meeting Open Networking (7:30am-8:30am) and be seated when the program begins promptly at 8:30am. For maximum benefit of all participants, we strongly encourage everyone to stay for the duration of the event and not leave before the end.
