This special speed networking event will be powered by a text messaging based system! Please bring your FULLY charged, text capable mobile phone. You will check in by texting to our special event phone number when you arrive. Then networking matches will be texted to you throughout the 10 rounds of the event.
How many times do you attend a great event but wish you met more people? Or you ended up talking to one person the whole time? This Brighton Chamber event changes all that.
Our promise: Within an hour, a room of strangers will turn into a room of familiar faces.
Don’t be fooled. This isn't your typical speed-anything. There are no musical chairs and no awkwardness. We'll be using a text messaging system that will make intros for you - like the world's greatest party host!
When you arrive, plan to check in via SMS (so have your phone charged and ready). You’ll get a text telling you who to meet next, and where in the room to meet them. 6 minutes later, you'll get another text. Repeat.
We'll be kicking off the meetings at 6pm. At the end of the event, you’ll get an email with a digest of all the folks you met, including name, bio and email address.
This is a totally new way to network and it’s a lot of fun. So come with a fully charged cell phone (that can accept text messages) and an open mind!
How to opt-out: Text “OUT” to quit or take a break.
How to opt-in during the event: Text “IN” to jump back in on the next round.
