Networking event on the 24th of January

January 17, 2012 by  

The Long Island Business Networking Meetup has made plans for a networking event on February 14th, 2012.

Starting at 7:30 pm, this Long Island Business Networking Meetup will once again be giving business owners and other professionals a chance to network. The very reasonable $15.00 charge will be enough to cover a complete buffet among other things. With an official end time of 9:30 pm, this has all the makings of a very productive evening. As for the group itself, it’s worth pointing out that these events tend to follow a more structured format.

Since attendees get an opportunity to present a 30 second to 1 minute “elevator pitch”, everyone will be able to introduce themselves. In order to make the event work in its entirety, however, professionals are advised to arrive on time and to stay in touch where RSVPs are concerned. Of course, organizers also encourage people to arrive with a healthy amount of business card printing.

Another self-promotional technique that Long Island Business Networking is offering businesses is the opportunity to donate a raffle prize. In exchange for this display of generosity, the company will receive acknowledgement on the group’s very well-frequented blog. That recommendation could go a long way for a Massapequa Park-based company. In some respects, this would work similarly to marketing online with digital business cards. As per usual, here are the group’s suggestions for those who plan to attend:

“Make sure you
• bring plenty of business cards

• prepare your 60 second intro

• show up on time to get the most out of the meeting

• keep your RSVP updated”
