HAPPY HOURS TO NETWORK AND BUILD BUSINESS

For the last 11 minths, I have organized a monthly Happy Hour at a different venue for Meeting,Wedding,Event and Party Planners to network and build business. Each month 30-50 Planners are joined my selected Suppliers at a different venue like La Buena Vida Winery, The House of Blues, The Joule Hotel and Amazing Jake's. I have over the course of the last 11 months invited a different entertainer to perform including a casino black jack table and dealer at Black Finn, DJ Mark Ridlen at the Joule Hotel. MC/Comedian Bo Gerrard at  La Buena Vida, a stiltwalker and clown to face paint and do balloon anaimals for the Planners Kids at Amazing Jake's.The idea was that it was getting so expensive to go to all these MPI,NACE and ISES luncehons/dinners and you don't get enough time to network. Because of these Happy Hours, I have doen buisness with the Ft. Worth Zoo, Gaylord Hotels and Great Wolf. We have provided Jazz trios,Hawaiian dancers, mariachi musicians and several bands. Next week, we have 6 Mardi Gras shows with costumed Stiltwalkers, strolling musicians and 3 Zydeco bands from these Happy Hours. Our next Happy Hour is at Blue Mesa on March 24th
