Recap: Speed Networking

After the success of last year’s inaugural event, we brought back Speed Networking for a repeat slot in the Ad Week event lineup.

On Wednesday, October 9, 20 people showed up to Resurgence Brewery on Chicago St., grabbed a drink, and casually sat down at tables across from one another for a series of one-on-one chats. One hour and 10 new business cards later, attendees lingered at the bar to continue conversations and discuss projects more in-depth.

This year we added a few new specialties to the mix, including video and analytics, as well as some new, non-agency companies. As time ran out on the final rotation, attendees continued to chat long after we concluded the “official” portion of the event (making it a solid success in our book since that’s the goal).
