December 27, 2011 by  

The 88th annual Arlington Business Gala presented by the arlington Chamber of Commerce will take place at the Ritz Carlton, Pentagon City on January 28, 2012 from 6:30 pm to midnight. Tickets are $180 per person; raffle tickets are $50 or three for $135. Black tie is recommended.

This will be a great evening of dining, dancing and networking. Cocktails will be served from 6:30 to 7:30 and there will be lots of food to nibble on. The evening will also have live and silent auctions with goods and services donated by local businesses. There will also be dancing until midnight. There will also be a raffle draw; the winner of which wins a stay at a Tuscan Villa for four adults for seven nights.

Social events such as the Arlington Business Gala present not only a fun evening but a chance to meet business leaders whom you might not have had the chance to meet before. Before going make sure you update your business card. Printing extras to take with you is always a good idea. A few cards can be placed in a suit jacket or in a ladies’ evening purse and can be handed to others discretely while you are talking to them. Any networking done at social events should be gentle and friendly without any hint of hard sell.

This event is a great way to kick of the new business year in style and you may meet someone who will take your business to the next level.
