Speed Networking Event
What is Speed Networking?
Speed networking is like speed dating for professionals. It evolved from the speed dating model of meeting a lot of people in a short amount of time. It is a structured process for facilitating introductions and conversation between people who don't know each other. At Denver Metro BOMA's fun and interactive event, you will have two minutes of face-time with multiple Principal members. Meeting new people and building relationships is a surefire way of ensuring that your business will continue to grow! Exhibitors must be BOMA members to participate.
How Does It Work?
