500+ Network at SchmoozaPalooza
More than 500 area professionals gathered at the second-ever SchmoozaPalooza on Wednesday, June 5 at the Horseshoe Casino. They spent 4 hours networking, connecting and playing with the 67 businesses and restaurants who exhibited, and each other. SchmoozaPalooza is a mix of business networking and business partying - with plenty of both to be had. Here's what some of you had to say about it:
Chris Lee of BookKeeping Express said: "First class event. I had hoped for between 6 and 10 quality contacts going into the SchmoozaPalooza event and I would say I have between 25 and 30 really good business contacts to follow up with."
Lorie Orth of ESCO Technologies said: "ESCO Technologies, LLC was very proud to be a part of such a wonderful opportunity...We were able to make connections with other businesses within the tri-state area that we can and will partner with in future business ventures as well as partner with for our own operations.The low cost of the trade show made the decision to attend so much easier as well. We were able to successfully network without draining our marketing budget.Not only did we obtain valuable connections, we were able to do it in a fun and exciting atmosphere. We plan to attend again in 2014 and for years following."
Julie Chaney of Tano Bistro & Catering said: As an exhibitor, the event was organized with good direction and information provided for location and set-up. The attendees were interested in hearing more about menu and services offered at Tano Bistro & Catering and Take Home Tano with a mix of current customers who gave "on the spot" testimonials, those who have heard of us but have not visited as yet, and those who were hearing about us for the first time. We are hopeful that the result will be new and loyal customers for all parts of our business -- the restaurant, take home meals, and catering.
We'd like to extend a big thank you to all of our exhibitors and attendees for making this summer's SchmoozaPalooza a huge success, fostering business relationships, new clients, potential customers, and new friends!
