Citizen Event is a networking event to facilitate uninterrupted conversations, the sharing of knowledge and the creation of meaningful relationships. To ensure that every attendee gets the most out of the networking opportunity, we ask that all guests follow the following rules:
All Are Welcome
Events only work when we all work together. No matter what your job title or whether you are corporate, agency, supplier, venue, student or freelance, or which sector of the event industry you are from, you are more than welcome at Citizen Event.
No Overt Selling
While we appreciate that this is the environment for deals to be made, please don’t ‘cold call’ just because a potential lead is present. Citizen Event is about relationships not pitching.
Keep the event ‘litter-ature’ free. Citizen Event is about building meaningful relationships, not leaving flyers on tables.
Business Cards Are Essential
Normally this is just a suggestion, Cbut we want to make sure you get the most out of the morning, so we urge you to bring them. Even more than that, we urge you to follow up on the contacts you make (Fun fact: 80% of leads are not followed up!)
No Such Thing as a Free Meal
While the event is free to attend and open to everyone in the Event Industry, Citizen Event is for event profs wanting to network. if your agenda is just free tea and coffee, it’s probably best to give Citizen Event a miss.
The Network is its Own Reward
Citizen Event is the place to forge new connections and polish your network. Bring an open mind and a stack of business cards and watch your event network grow.
