Business After Hours - Six Events in 2019
The Esperance Chamber of Commerce and Industry are calling for Expressions of Interest from our Business Members who would like to Host a Business After Hours (BAH) Networking Function in 2019.
Business After Hours are held outside of business hours every month and are supported by the ECCI as a benefit for our members. ECCI Business Members gain this valuable opportunity to promote their products and services to the business community.
Business After Hours can be used to promote a new business looking for customers, or an existing business wanting to expand their customer base, or relaunching a company brand and logo and looking for the best way to let everyone know. Hosts usually give a short presentation of 15-30 minutes during the evening and may also introduce staﬀ, or give a tour of their premises.
Business After Hours are held on an evening chosen by the host and usually last for about two hours, starting at 5:30pm. Business After Hours are held at the host business premises, or at an alterntiave venue chosen by the host. The host is responsible for payment of venue costs, catering and refreshments and the provision of a Door
Prize. The ECCI encourages businesses to co-host the evening alongside other local businesses, to share the benefits and maximise attendance and networking opportunities.
The ECCI make sure that Business After Hours are marked on our Event Calendar and we notify our Business Members several weeks prior, as well as following up with reminders closer to the date. The ECCI also promotes these events on our website, social media, and with local newspaper and radio.
