networking event for students

We're hosting an event for prospective students and alumni featuring a panel discussion lead by alumni. This is in effort to convert prospects into applicants! There will also be a small networking session after the panel discussion so prospective students can connect more with other students and additional alumni who are invited to attend the reception.

corporate meeting and user group

I would like to host a corporate meeting/user group for 40 next month. The event would take around 3-4 hours, and would consist of technical presentations in a classroom-style setting, followed by light catering and drinks for networking.

networking event

I am currently looking for a unique location to host a networking event. We need a spot to accommodate up to 100 reception style and then space for catering and possibly entertainment. Do you have availability on any of the above dates?

100 people

$4,200.00

networking event with guest speakers

The event will be a networking event and we'll have one or two guest speakers. I'll bring wine and maybe some light bites. I'll also bring cups and napkins. No chairs needed except the one behind your desk which we can use for registration. Don't need any tables either. If you can hire your gal to be our bartender, we'll need her from 6:00 - 9:00 pm. I believe you said $25/hour + $25 tip, correct? As we discussed, if you have a current exhibition or use your "house art" for a backdrop, that will be awesome. We have one banner that we use as a photo backdrop which has its own stand. I also have 2 22x28" posters that sit on easels which I'll bring with me. The crowd will be architects, designers, visual merchandisers, educators and vendors to the trade (flooring, lighting etc..) Number of guests may be as low as 40 or as high as 140 - it all depends on who's available that night etc.. I'll put 140 in the next box.
