Host a Business After/Before Hours

WHAT IS A BUSINESS AFTER HOURS?

Our Business After Hours event offer members, prospective members, customers, and guests the chance to network in an engaging, unique atmosphere.

These events are held monthly from 5:00 – 7:00 PM.  The host presents guests an opportunity to converse with business community members in a manner befitting what they themselves have to offer as a company, making each and every monthly event distinctive.  In this digital age, face to face interaction is becoming less frequent, yet people still want to know who they are doing business with. In the social setting of a Business After Hours, there’s more than small talk – its the chance to get to know your business community.
