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 sure-fire way of ensuring that your business will continue to grow! Exhibitors must be BOMA members to participate.
How It Works
You have two minutes to make your pitch and form a new connection with your group of Principal BOMA members. No need to make a “hard sell” in this format. The event is all about first impressions with quick & concise introductions. Remember you have two minutes of valuable face time…make those minutes count!
