It is important to attend neighborhood and community events in addition to the larger business networking and industry events you may attend. There are great networking opportunities at local events to get to know your local business community. This is especially important for small businesses and local non profits. Make sure if you are attending a local food tasting event, jazz fair, county fair etc you bring business cards. It is not a traditional networking event but there are still opportunities to make a meaningful connection in a much more relaxed and casual setting. This may even make it easier for some who are not big fans of traditional networking events to engage in conversation.
