Blogger, Meagan Coates, Chamber Staff Member With all participants seated in pairs, the SPEED NETWORKING sessions commence. During each fast paced session, participants network face-to-face. After the end of each session, participants quickly alternate their seating arrangements to pair up with their next networking opportunity. Speed Networking is like speed dating for your business. Local professionals gather around delicious appetizers and refreshments at a local hotspot, The Boathouse Pub, for thirty minutes of fast-paced networking. You would be amazed at how much information you can share about yourself and your business in just two minutes. People leave these events with a stack of business cards and promote one another.

But don't take my word for it. Here are a few testimonials from past attendees: "I love the Speed Networking events that the Chamber hosts.  It’s an excellent and fun way to network like you never have before!  The Chamber always picks great locations to have them as well.  If you are looking for a different way to network, I would recommend coming to a Speed Network session. Every one that I’ve been to has been well worth it. Thank you to everyone at the Steamboat Chamber!"

" Thanks so much for the speed networking – I really enjoyed and appreciated the chance to hear about what other professionals are doing in the community, how I can help them, and create networking relationships."

" I attended the first Speed Networking put on by the Steamboat Chamber and am really impressed by the results. Over the course of an hour, I made many valuable contacts and have had two weeks of follow-up meetings. It seemed that everyone there was driven to share and learn about business opportunities and I will absolutely attend the next event."
