"Chocolate Blues" is a giant business to business networking event that brings together hundreds of business owners and professionals. This event features a business expo, open networking, door prizes, ice breakers, networking games, on the spot appointment setting, round table workshops, a giant business card exchange, business coaching, brainstorming circles, book signings, media mixers, blues background music and of course, chocolate treats!
We are one of the largest, most successful and longest running networking events in the country...hundreds, sometimes thousands attend our events. Our goal is usually 500-800 participants but sometimes our crowds are much larger. We have had as many as 2,730 people show up for a single networking event. So plan for 500 and don't be surprised if we exceed your expectations.
Experience makes the difference...we produced our first business event in 1989 and have hundreds of successful events to our credit. We're currently in 50 U.S. cities and our events have resulted in thousands of connections and success stories for our clients.
There are many ways to participate at Chocolate Blues...
Attend as a Networker: Bring business cards & your appointment book.
Be a Featured Vendor: Showcase your products and services, hand out literature, book appointments, sell products & collect leads. Our vendor fees are low and vendors receive admission tickets to pass out.
Host a Round Table Workshop or Coaching Circle: This is our standard vendor package, with a twist. See your local director for details.
Sponsor An Event: Sponsorship includes our standard vendor package, plus extra perks, recognition and advertising in our national magazine.
National No-Show Sponsor: Chances are you can't personally be at all of our events, but now your business can be!
Be an Ambassador: Are you new to networking or maybe you're a little shy? If so, working the door as a greeter or hosting one of our games is a great way to get involved, learn the ropes and get connected.
