Have you heard of Meetup??
Google…what an amazing tool. Not too long ago I entered a google search “South Florida fashion networking” and found this great website called Meetup. It’s a site where Meetup groups are organized within various industries, activities, etc. across the U.S. You can search the database for a Meetup group near you and find out when that organization is hosting events.
I have been to two Meetup events for a group I joined and I love it! The networking events are pretty intimate, the first was only 10 people but last night there were 27 attendees. The event was held at a great design your own purse boutique SassyBB. Amongst the attendees were fashion designers, jewelry designers, a stylist/creative director, photographers, a web designer and manufacturing consultant, an event planner, and a magazine publicist among others. It is a fabulous way to meet people within your industry and develop a network of professionals to work with. Everyone is very friendly and open to offering their expertise.
It’s very exciting to be in an atmosphere with creative, entrepreneurial minded people. I highly recommend investigating a Meetup Group in your area!
