If there is one thing BizNet Online Magazine tends to repeat over and over again, it is that there are a lot of different types of networking out there to be done. In August BizNet took a look at the "Best Of L. A. Festival", in September we looked at a Mixer put on by the Santa Clarita Chamber of Commerce. So what do you get when you mix the festival style of the "Best Of L.A. Festival" with a Chamber of Commerce event?
|A Taste Of Encino, put on by:
The Encino Chamber Of Commerce
http://www.sfvalley.org/encino/index.html. Much like the "Best Of L. A. Festival", "A Taste Of Encino" is more street fair then traditional Chamber Mixer. In this "Fair" atmosphere, some businesses do better than others at displaying their goods and services. While most Chamber events are good for all businesses, and Chamber Expos are aimed at business-to-business type businesses, this street "Fair" setting is very productive for business-to-consumer type of businesses. So, if you're a restaurant or in retail sales, an event of this type can get you known in the community.
As "A Test Of Encino" is sponsored by the Encino Chamber of Commerce, the setting is a little different than other "Street Fairs". This event was held at the local Marine Corp. Reserve Center, allowing an interesting mix of Guerrilla Marketing with Heavy Armor so that attendees could get a good look at a hard hitting tank or tankup on some hard hitting margaritas.
