What is a Chocolate Blues and Business Networking Festival? Chocolate Blues is a giant business to business networking event that brings together hundreds of business owners and professionals. This event features a business expo, open networking, door prizes, ice breakers, networking games, on the spot appointment setting, round table workshops, a giant business card exchange, business coaching, brainstorming circles, book signings, media mixers, blues background music and of course, chocolate treats! We are one of the largest, most successful and most fun networking events in the country...hundreds, sometimes thousands attend our events. Our goal is usually 500-800 participants but sometimes our crowds are much larger. We have had as many as 2,730 people show up for a single networking event. So plan for 500 and don't be surprised if we exceed your expectations.

The short answer is yes, and I’ll tell you why.
A friend said to me once: “Your network is your net worth,” an idea advanced by Porter Gale in her book of the same name. I have realized that this sentiment is certainly on point, even if it’s not a direct equation.
Your network is a reservoir of value that will help you solve problems, receive support, find the right people, and ultimately grow your business. In an age where much more communications happen digitally, it is more important than ever to actually make human connections.

75% of all business is done by networking and 70% of all jobs are gained by referrals. Networking is vital in today’s world and its added value is well known. Networking means building relationships and takes patience and time. Networking is an attitude of engagement.
Networking is as important to successful business people as water is to the human body. Done on a consistent basis it leads to social currency and net worth. Networking is the LIFEBLOOD of prosperous entrepreneurs.
Networking saves time, makes you smarter and more productive, and eventually, people start coming to you. You become the “go to person” for solutions because you have the ‘network’ of resources with the answers.
