Event Description:

We invite ALL members and non-members to join us for our facilitated networking event. In this event, you will be welcomed to The Village and participate in an activity that will get you up and talking to other like-minded business people. 

This Villager will also include new and exciting insight into what is coming up in Hamilton and the Chamber for the second season of 2018, the "Round Two" season. We're mixing it up and hosting it over at The Eatery & Keg Room over in Rototuna. Our guest speaker will be Kelvyn Eglinton, CEO of Momentum Waikato Community Foundation.

In a city of only 150 thousand people, the reality is, doing business here relies as much on who you know as what you know. If you are looking to expand your networks, meet others in a facilitated welcoming environment, and find out more about the Waikato Chamber of Commerce can help you, this event is for you.
