Networking events can be a great way to meet people, both for work and for fun! However, hosting one can be difficult. Like any event there are keys to its success, and here are a few tips to help you.
- Hold it somewhere easy to find and easily accessible. Is your location on a bus route, is there parking, how easy is it to get to for someone who is new the area?
- Get the word out. Use Facebook, it is a great tool to help promote events. Invite your friends, have them invite their friends. Also, use word of mouth, tell people you meet, let them know they can tell their friends.
