There’s a range of opportunities out there for companies to mix and mingle with other local businesses. Sometimes those events can be a hit, and others can drag through disorganization or spotty attendance. But when we at Hotel Engine decided to sponsor the Net90 events through the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce, we knew we joined something worthwhile.
This event not only presents a major opportunity for our company but also for hundreds of other small and midsized businesses in the greater Denver area. Over delicious food and drinks, we can meet other like-minded professionals on a more personal level. It’s the perfect opportunity to learn about the exciting local developments and how your business can better connect with the greater community.
Comfortably network with dozens of vendors
When you first walk into a Net90 event, you’ll see dozens of booths representing 35 local vendors and their teams. You can introduce your company and talk one-on-one with the hundreds that attend every event. It’s luckily never too crowded, though. You never have to wait in line to get in, and you’re not packed liked sardines once you’re inside.
Our team finds that you can successfully talk to 30 or 40 people within a few hours of each event. That’s a good four-minute conversation per person. The best part about sponsoring an event like this, at least for Hotel Engine, is it allows us to get an inside look at who’s coming with a pre-event list of attendees. That way, we can make sure to prepare our elevator pitch to fit the audience, so we don’t waste your time or ours.
Meet businesses like yours
Here at Hotel Engine, we are always looking to connect with other small and midsized businesses because our platform was built with them in mind. We’re able to offer those companies exclusive wholesale rates at more than 150,000 hotels worldwide, for both business or personal travel. Through this event, we can spread the word about Hotel Engine on the spot. It takes less than a minute to sign up on our platform, and the immediate connection and word-of-mouth effect we can create at a Net90 event is invaluable.
Grow your user base
At least 24,292 businesses call Denver home, and this event allows those companies to easily gain more clients and network with other companies in our own backyard. For example, nearly 250 people showed up to the Net90 event in October. Even if your company isn’t a vendor, you can still gain similar benefits of exposure. Net90 works on both sides of the table.
Involve your employees
Net90 isn’t just an event for sales and marketing. Our leaders at Hotel Engine saw a unique opportunity to involve a diverse group of representatives from our team who are looking for personal development and networking opportunities outside of their desk jobs. Sure, we’re able to get our name out there, but this event also allows our team members to do the same within the professional community in Denver. Every event, they’re building more personable relationships.
Net90’s last event of the year was on Thursday (Dec. 21), but you’ll have plenty more opportunities to stop by our booth and say hi in the new year. Or better yet, consider getting a booth yourself and find out just how great the Denver Metro community really is.
