Network on the beach in Fairfield

June 25, 2012 by  

The Beach Bash, a presentation of the Fairfield Chamber of Commerce, the Westport-Weston Chamber, and the Bridgeport Regional Business Council, will take place at the Penfield II Pavilion on July 19 from 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm. Tickets are $45 for chamber members or $60 for non-members. Attendance is limited to 125.

The event will be catered by Lasse’s Restaurant and beer and wine will be available. It will be the perfect opportunity for members and prospective members of each chamber of commerce to network with one another. There are comparatively few networking opportunities during the summer months and the events that do take place are usually social events such as this. Still, many business leaders from each community, including Fairfield, will be arranging for business card printing in advance of attending, as they will want to make sure that they have enough business cards to give to those they meet. There will be no hard sell at the Beach Bash but no doubt conversation will get around to business.

Most networking events are only held by one chamber of commerce and ones like this will ensure that most of the business leaders in attendance will have not met before and will have lots of chances to increase their referral networks outside of their immediate area.

After the Beach Bash, business leaders can start to arrange their networking calendars for the next year. They will need to decide which events to attend and what their networking goals are for the year ahead.
