Business and Networking
The Southington Chamber works hard to promote our members, and we hold many events that provide our members ample opportunity to network and gain additional business. Below are just some of the programs we offer that can successfully market your business.
Business Expo 'Under the Tent' - At the Apple Harvest Festival each year - Presented by The Greater Southington Chamber of Commerce, the showcase featured the finest representatives of the Greater Southington area. This event is designed for area businesses to showcase their products and services, providing the opportunity to network, make new customer contacts, and gain business exposure. Exhibits are as diverse as the number of companies in the greater Southington area, so there will be something for everyone! Stay tuned for more details!
Italian American Festival - Last weekend in July - Located on Center Street, downtown Southington. Food and novelty booths, entertainment, children's carnival and a Sunday outdoor Mass.
Chamber Advantage Nights - The Southington Chamber of Commerce Advantage Night (formally the B2B Business After Hours program) is a popular informal Business networking event held monthly and co-hosted by the Chamber of Commerce and one of its member businesses. The event is an opportunity for all businesses in the Greater Southington Community to promote their products and services, meet potential new clients, socialize in an informal manner, and introduce employees to members of the business community. New members of the Chamber of Commerce are also recognized and presented with their new member plaques. All employees of Chamber of Commerce member businesses are invited to participate in the monthly receptions and may come alone or as a group. Attendees may pass out literature about their company and its products and services.
Chamber-In-The-Morning - This for members only networking event is held monthly on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at The Orchards of Southington on Hobart Street, from 8:00 to 9:00 a.m. Theses sessions allow members to meet fellow members and to talk briefly about their products and services. There is no charge to attend. A free continental breakfast is served.
Networking 101 - Power Networking at its finest. Here is the perfect opportunity for you to meet 16-20 other Southington Chamber business people in a power networking environment. Each member is paired with another so each can give a 2 minute presentation on what their company does and why other members should buy from you. After your 2 minutes are up, your partner presents to you. With 16-20 people participating in the event, you can meet and enjoy the opportunity of power selling to many in a very short period of time. Bring your cards, brochures and be prepared for an exciting, worthwhile event. Note: This event is held once every 3 months and participation is limited.
