Business After Hours Social Networking Events Monthly

When you join the Greater Elizabeth Chamber of Commerce (GECC), you gain access to incredible opportunities to network with other businesses. Our monthly Business After Hours networking events are free to all Chamber members and are a great way to connect with fellow business owners and spread the word about your business. 

Each of our Business After Hours events is hosted by a GECC Chamber member and includes complimentary beverages and appetizers for you to enjoy while you network with other attendees. The event locations change each month, which gives you the chance to experience a variety of local venues.

Past Business After Hours Events

Some of our previous Business After Hours events were held at local hotels, including Elizabeth Courtyard by Marriott, where participants connected with each other in a relaxed atmosphere and were entered into an “Elevator Speech drawing”. The event hosts collected business cards from all attendees and randomly selected six cards. These six winners then had the opportunity to make their elevator pitch in front of the other attendees. 

Many Business After Hours events also took place at local restaurants, such as Tequila Bistro, where attendees sampled Mexican appetizers and sipped beverages from the happy hour cash bar as they networked with other business owners. 

Due to Covid-19, the GECC switched to virtual events, but we’ve recently made a return to in-person events. Our Speed Networking events have been a huge success, and we continue to hold them each month. The most recent event took place at El Nachos Tequila Cantina, where attendees engaged in 6-minute networking appointments with each other. Due to a limited number of appointment times, participants are asked to register in advance for our Speed Networking events.
