The Hive Creative Consulting is excited to announce a new networking event for Contractors, subcontractors, and other home specialists along the Emerald Coast. The purpose of this event is to bring together professionals in the construction industry and give them the opportunity to make meaningful business connections in a casual, fun environment. The Hive Creative Consulting team created this event for the needs of a few of their clients, and are pleasantly surprised by the excitement and “buzz” from construction industry professionals all over the Panhandle. “Word is really traveling fast. We are so pleased to be part of an event that business owners are enjoying and are enthusiastic about,” says Ali Weil, Principal at The Hive Creative Consulting. The first Contractor’s Connect event on September 7th in Grayton Beach was a big success, with more than 40 construction professionals in attendance! Cole Bakker, CEO of Specialty Roofers Inc. says, “We were proud to sponsor the first Contractors Connect, and plan on staying involved as this event grows. We look forward to being an industry partner for the November event!” President of Specialty Roofers, Mike Miller, says, “It is really nice to attend a networking event that is customized to the needs of our industry. The goal of every business is to build relationships, and in construction you depend on good relationships to get opportunities to bid projects.”
AJ’s Restaurant Group was first approached about this project back in August just six short months after opening their fourth project, AJ’s Grayton Beach. “We’re always interested in new, fresh ways to be involved in the community. As we continue to grow in the surrounding areas we understand the importance of building relationships in our community”, says Rachael Green, spokesperson for AJ’s Restaurant Group. After a successful turnout for the first event, the group is excited to see the project grow with each event.
The second Contractor’s Connect event will be held on November 2nd, 2017 at AJ’s in Destin (116 Harbor Blvd) from 5-7pm. Guests can mingle with other local industry professionals for drinks, good company, and meaningful business connections! Ticket ($10) includes first draft beer and light appetizers. All registered guests will be entered to win in a multiple of giveaway drawings at the event. Audio Video Excellence (AVX) looks forward to being the Presenting Sponsor for the November 2nd event. Chris St. John, of AVX, says “ AVX understands that relationships are essential to being a successful business – which is why we place service to our clients and partners as the preeminent focus for all that we do. We are honored to call many general contractors and builders throughout the region our partners, which is why we are excited to sponsor the Contractor’s Connect event”.
