We’re not your run-of-the-mill networking group. We’re all neighbors. A close-knit community. We want to build relationships that last, not just for networking success. LinkNetworking means no memberships, no fees, just a chance to share handshakes, opportunities, and ideas with your hometown neighbors.
LinkNetworking is all about connecting genuine, hard-working people who want to help each other build their businesses by gathering on a bi-monthly basis to exchange opportunities and ideas. Our hope is that our attendees find new connections and build lasting relationships that impact their businesses for years to come.
We gather on the first and third Tuesdays of every month. We offer sponsorship opportunities for businesses that want to promote their brand to our list of current and former attendees and draw an average of 80 people per event.
If you have any questions about sponsorship opportunities or our events, please contact us.
LinkNetworking Principles for Networking Success
Meaningful discussions build genuine friendships.
No gossip and appreciating differences produces trust.
Honesty, integrity, and walking the talk generates referrals.
It’s all about the attitude.
Fun, friendliness, and transparency makes one memorable.
It’s not all about you. Strive to understand others’ problems or needs.
Willingness to reach out and help others expand their network goes far, indeed.
Events are held on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month.
If you own a business, run a business, or are in sales for a business in the greater Annapolis area, LinkAnnapolis is for you.
Neither. No fee, no membership, no obligation. However, we do request that you register for each event so we can get a head count for space and appetizers.
LinkNetworking is a come as you are, arrive when you want, leave when you want event. We always have a monthly prize drawing from our “business card in a bowl” at 6:00PM, so you’ll want to be around for that (you must be present to win). Past prizes have included a dinners for two, $50 Amazon gift cards, and tickets to the movies. Other than that, you’re on your own to meet your neighbors, make new contacts, and maximize business your opportunities.
When you walk in the door, we ask that you visit our registration table to simply check in, drop a card in the bowl for the drawing, and get a nametag. After that, you are free to socialize and form new friendships and business contacts!
Buy your own drinks, but appetizers are graciously provided by either our monthly sponsor or the venue host!
Bring a few buckaroos for a drink or three, some business cards, and a genuine smile.
You may bring whatever you’d like to personally hand to others, however, we do not accommodate for a table of materials at these events. People are more inclined to shake your hand and receive a business card than to gather a bag full of handouts. Think networking, not trade show!
If your friend owns, runs, or work in sales for a business, absolutely. Please make sure that they register in advance too.
Note: please limit attendance to 2 representatives per company.
Great! You might do better in making new friends and contacts than those who only huddle with the people they already know.
Absolutely! If you meet someone and decide to talk further over dinner or want to call your main squeeze or family to meet you for dinner afterwards, go for it! We definitely want to show our support to the restaurants who have graciously provided our venues. If you stay or come back for dinner later, please make sure to tell them that you are there because of LinkNetworking!
