What is a Community Networking & News Event?

Three Rounds of Networking

The general theme of a Community Networking & News event is for you to get to share your story about your business.  That's why there are three rounds of networking with you speaking for two minutes on your business each round. Business cards are exchanged and connections are made before you get up and move to your next table.

CNN Sponsorships

Each Community Networking & News event is sponsored by a local business. Not only does the business get recognized in all of the promotions of the event prior to the date, but they get to speak between the first and second rounds of networking for 10 minutes about their business. Sponsorships are secured through the Evansville Regional Economic Partnership.
