Event name: Toast of Seattle
Organization: Seattle Chamber of Commerce
Frequency: Third Friday or each month typically
Time of day: Always 7:30-9:30am
Admission: $20 members, $25 non-members usually
Average attendance: 65-85
What to expect at this event: This morning event consists of three seated ‘networking rounds’ with 8 to 10 professionals per table. Each professional receives 2-minutes to give a ‘commercial’ or share about their business, concept or charity. Prizes and announcements are sprinkled throughout. Expect continental breakfast and occasionally a breakfast buffet, depending on the venue.
Who attends this event: Typically quite the mix, but I’ll notice more venue managers, director of catering, non-profits, with a wide variety of professionals from mostly medium-sized businesses. Won’t see too many solopreneurs here.
