After concluding multiple successful networking events since September 2017, Contractors Connect, a networking event created by The Hive Creative Consulting for home and building specialists along the Emerald Coast, hosts another opportunity for industry professionals to connect and build relationships in a casual atmosphere.

Contractors Connect travels back to AJ’s in Grayton Beach for its May 3 Meet Up from 5:30-7:30 p.m, with BrightView, an all-inclusive landscaping company, as the presenting sponsor.

“After seeing its past success, we knew we wanted to be a part of this awesome networking concept,” said Marjorie Haight, a representative from BrightView. “For Brightview, this is a great opportunity for us to share that we are not only a landscape maintenance company that serves commercial properties and HOAs, but that we also provide residential landscape design and development.”

Pulling in more than 100 contractors, designers, realtors, bankers and insurance agents at previous events, The Hive expects attendance at the May Meet Up to stay on trend and bring in a large crowd, expanding on each attendee’s ability to construct meaningful relationships.

“We have had great feedback from the community about this event,” said Erin Bakker with The Hive Creative Consulting. “Contractors Connect has turned into exactly what we hoped it would. It has become a place where transactions, deals, and relationships are created.”

Tickets for the May Meet Up are $10 and include admittance to the event, one free draft beer and light appetizers. Attendee’s business names will be included in a follow up thank-you email and social media post after the event. All registered guests who drop their business cards at the check-in table upon arriving will be entered to win in multiple giveaway drawings that evening.
