SRC Speed Networking Back by Popular Demand

March 13, 2018

SPRINGFIELD, Mass., March 13, 2018 –The Springfield Regional Chamber will hold its ever-popular Speed Networking on March 29, 2018 from 3:30 p.m.-5:00 p.m. at The Colony Club, 1500 Main Street, Springfield. Attendees will have the opportunity to continue to network with other attendees in The Colony Club Lounge, where a cash bar will be available.

Speed Networking provides attendees with a quick and entertaining opportunity to introduce themselves and pitch their company to the other attendees. 

The core concept to speed networking is the “elevator speech,” a short summary of an individual, business, organization, product or service – a summary that a person could deliver in the time span of a short elevator ride.  Attendees will be divided into two groups, seated across from each other. Each group member will have 60 seconds to give his/her elevator speech to the person seated directly across from him/her. Once each member has given their elevator speech, they will change seats and the process will begin again with a new partner. The round robin format of networking will continue until the event is over. Only one person per company can attend the event so that attendees are able to meet with someone from a different company at each interaction.

The event will begin with registration at 3:30 p.m. To accommodate the event, no admittance to the Speed Networking area will be allowed after 3:50 p.m. Reservations are $20 in advance for members, $30 for general admission and includes complementary parking in the Tower Square garage, 1500 Main Street, Springfield.

Reservations must be made online and in advance at or by contacting
