Rochester Networking Events

We have four networking events in the Rochester area per year in addition to our yearly holiday party.  These events are free and open to the public. We have a guest speaker, free appetizers, and it's a great forum for connecting with professionals and entrepreneurs. Click here to sign up for the People + People = Business 2 Business mailing list.

We designed these events to connect Rochester business professionals with one another.  Throughout the networking event many professionals exchange ideas, make professional recommendations, referrals and establish professional relationships.

  • "P+P=B2B is the first networking event where I actually met and converted prospective clients into actual clients. Because of these events I have new clients with ongoing marketing projects and what I believe will be long-term business relationships. No other networking event that I have attended has attracted people that specifically ask me to call them for a follow up meeting if my services fit their needs. Or, have recommended my agency as frequently. It is truly a "B2B target market" for new business development."
