Upcoming Chamber Chatter Connections
A Chamber Chatter Connections is an
excellent opportunity to network with other businesses from the area. This
event is sponsored by the North Tampa Chamber and hosted by chamber
businesses. Only North Tampa Chamber members are eligible to host or
co-host, but the event is Open to the Public! Chamber Chatter Connections
are scheduled on days when there is no other planned chamber event. If you
don't have a location that is suitable for an event such as this or would
just like to share expenses and responsibilities, consider co-hosting with
another member and share in the costs and the results!
Chamber Chatter Connections can be a
"Coffee Connection" in the morning (usually from 7:30am to 9:00am) or an
"After Hours Mixer" in the evening (usually from 5:30pm to 7:00pm). Hours
may vary due to the preference of the member hosting the event. If you are

to request a co-host if desired.
There is no cost to the attendees, but
reservations are encouraged. The host(s) provides refreshments appropriate
for the time of day. All attendees have the opportunity to network with
each other. The member(s) hosting has the added opportunity to spotlight
their business in more detail to the entire group and to offer mini tours
of their location or samples of services/products. These events give
others an opportunity to see what the host business does and how well they
do it! The host(s) receives copies of sign-in sheets and business cards of
attendees to make future contacts with their guests.
Don't forget, as an attendee, to bring your
Business Cards to give to those with whom you would like to make future
contact. There will be NO display table, but you may hand out your
Brochures and/or Promotional items if you wish.
