How to Host a Business after Hours Event

Our monthly Business after Hours is the area's premier networking event. It offers our members a chance to kick back after work and socialize away from the pressures of the workplace. We encourage meeting new people and introducing them to your business.

Held each month, usually the third Tuesday from 5 to 6:30 p.m., Business after Hours offers sponsors a chance to promote their businesses and take their message to other chamber members in a relaxed atmosphere.

Typically, Business after Hours is hosted by one or two businesses at a restaurant, country club or hotel. (We ask businesses to consider a Business Showcase or Open House instead of a Business after Hours, if they wish to hold the event at their place of business).

Following are our hospitality members with whom you may choose to partner with:   

Applejack's Bar & Grill Murray's Irish Pub and Grille
Avenue Bar & Grille North Shore Golf Club
Best Western Riverfront Inn Ogden Club
Dairy Queen Pearl Eatery - Drinkery
Dome Lanes Riverside Golf Club
Iron Works on Main Subway
Little River Country Club The Brothers Three
Loopy's 2 The Cove
   

 The Business after Hours sponsor is responsible for the following:

• Providing space and parking for 50 to 100 guests
• Providing a check-in table, two chairs and a waste paper basket
• Providing a variety of refreshments (finger foods and beverages)
• Supplying at least one door prize
• Providing marketing literature, or other information about the business
• If providing a cash bar with beer, wine or soda, the host site must have a valid beverage license
If music is provided, we encourage a background music scenario so that guests may speak and hear without having to talk "over" the music

The chamber will:

 Notify members by e-mail and through other online means
• Handle all reservations
• Staff a check-in table with chamber employees and Chamber Ambassadors
• Provide host with an estimated attendance approximately 24 hours before event
• Supply name tags for guests to fill out
• Recruit Ambassadors who will greet guests and make introductions
• Provide host with attendee business cards at the end of the event
• Contact the Host with any information necessary for a great event prior to the event
