Chamber Chatter ConnectionsChamber 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 a member and would like to schedule an event, contact the chamber office at info@northtampachamber.com or 813-961-2420 to confirm dates, times and to request a co-host if desired.

Chamber Chatter ConnectionsThere 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.

Consider donating an item for the drawing. You will be recognized for your donation and it is a great opportunity to promote your business. All donated items are appreciated.
