Speed Networking

When:  Jun 26, 2019 from 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM (ET)
Associated with  Detroit Chapter

Speed Networking is perfect for those of all comfort levels because it is simple, structured, and straight to the point.  


First, all participants meet one another one-on-one for five minutes each.  When each period ends, participants change seats to speak with the next person.  No uncomfortable introductions. No glancing at your phone and wishing you were talking with someone else.  No awkward silences.  Complete instruction and guidance is given throughout.

The purpose of this event is to meet other event professionals in a comfortable and structured way. We hope through this speed networking process you meet others who share with you similar goals, interests, and aspirations. As well as, finding common ground with those who have had similar issues and situations.

We hope you attend this meeting with excitement and willingness to be open to meeting other event professionals in the Greater Detroit Events Industry.

Open to all ILEA - members and non-members, businesses in the Greater Detroit Area, and individuals looking to network with leading event professionals.  Dress is business casual. Bring lots of business cards, brochures, and marketing materials pertaining to your company.
