The Perfect Combination of High-Tech, High-Touch, and High-Trust

 

The Charlotte Business Group was named the best business networking group in Charlotte for 2017. Our monthly after-hours networking events are well-attended by some of the area’s top professionals and business owners.

We’ve expanded the concept to extend our reach, deliver more first-class events and provide regular meetings throughout the entire Charlotte market area. We will be hosting numerous events in all areas… including Lake Norman, Cabarrus County, Up-Town and the Ballantyne area. Our goal is to make our popular events more accessible and convenient to even more people.

In addition, we’re forming local chapters and small groups which will meet for breakfast or lunch two times per month. This will give members a better opportunity to build and strengthen deeper relationships with other professionals and business owners.

CONNECT - COLLABORATE - CREATE

 

The goal of your networking efforts should be to forge relationships… meaningful and profitable relationships. There’s much more to networking than passing out business cards and connecting online. The core focus of our Alliance is to connect like-minded business professionals in a manner which accelerates and fosters the process of building a profitable network of referral partners and prospective customers, clients or patients. In addition to networking events and opportunities, we provide a complete suite of digital services to not only build your relationship-capital but to strengthen your online reach and visibility.

Networking With No Limits

 

Your MEMBERSHIP includes a combination of networking events and opportunities with a unique, hyper-local online presence through www.TheAreaGuideCharlotte.com. You’ll have the perfect platform to connect with like-minded professionals and business owners while extending your reach, building your brand and connecting with prospective customers, clients or patients.

Networking Passport

 

Your NETWORKING PASSPORT will allow you full and free access to every regular Networking Event, Meeting, and Opportunity. You aren’t confined to a single geographical area or limited to one or two members per industry. You can attend any and every event or small group meeting, in any location or venue across the entire market area. Naturally, most members will choose to regularly attend a specific small group meeting convenient to their home or office. But you’re not limited to that specific group. If you want to visit another group in a different area, you are welcome to do so. We feel relationships and networking shouldn’t be limited or confined to a single geographical area.

We structure our networking events to make it easier to connect, carry on a conversation and get to know each other. We’ll typically showcase four to six local businesses who share their unique products and services with attendees. This gives them an opportunity to display their products and services while you get a chance to know them better.

Showcase Sponsors

Spring Table Design by Belle Creations

Each Networking Event is designed to showcase four or more local businesses and the products and services they offer. More than a typical sponsorship with a table to display your brochures, this is an interactive event. We want you to get to know each business owner or provider on a more personal level. Our goal is for you to EXPERIENCE their product or service so you can make a well-informed purchase decision… but more importantly, you’ll be a better referral partner if you tried their product and can offer an honest recommendation to your own customers, clients, patients, family, co-workers, friends, and neighbors. Contact us if you would like to showcase your business at an upcoming event.

At a recent event, held in an Arthur Rutenberg Homes model in Davidson, our Showcase Sponsors included Patricia Foster of Belle Creations. Patricia showed the attendees how to transform a room with a spring table setting. Marvin Lynch with Marvin’s Confections treated guests to decadent chocolates branded with our sponsor’s logo’s. We were introduced to a variety of clean-crafted wines by Leslie Miller of Scout & Cellar. Stephen Worgan of Brand U shared the latest and greatest promotional items. Rich Vecellio with Lake Norman Aesthetics gave away a free laser treatment.
