Coffee Contacts is a networking experience presented by the Mentor Area Chamber of Commerce and Eastern Lake County Chamber of Commerce. The events are are held at Chamber member businesses and provide an opportunity for the host business to briefly discuss their business and provide a tour if desired. In addition, the host company is provided with these benefits:

  • Email announcements about the event to members with host’s company logo
  • Social media posts with host’s company logo
  • Newsletter event advertising
  • Event posted on our website
  • Facebook and Twitter tags
  • A copy of the guest list for reference

The first Thursday of the month is usually the “larger” version of the event, often attracting more than 50 people! The third Thursday is the “decaf” version, usually held in smaller locations and attracting around 30.

For attendees of Coffee Contacts, there is the opportunity to meet fellow Chamber members in an entertaining “speed networking” model, where attendees often give “60-second commercials” about their business.  Attendees are in and out in no more than an hour (8-9 am) and oftentimes leave having made new business connections.
