Business leaders from around the Golden Triangle are set to converge next week in West Point for the regional Business After Hours event.
The event, set to be held from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, May 15 at the Ritz Theater and Conference Center on Commerce Street, will bring together business owners and leaders from West Point, Columbus and Starkville for a meet and greet, complete with appetizers and cocktails. In addition to providing regional business owners and economic development leaders the opportunity to converse on a more personal level, the event provides the chance to cultivate entrepreneurial relationships, according to West Point/Clay County Growth Alliance Director Lisa Klutts.
â€śIt allows other business owners, managers and directors to network and make valuable connections,â€ť Klutts said. â€śâ€¦ Weâ€™ll mingle, and there will be music â€¦ itâ€™s a little like a happy hour.â€ť
Klutts said the event is an offshoot of the monthly Business After Hours events conducted in Columbus and Starkville. West Point, too, hosts a quarterly Business After Hours for those in the West Point business community. For the last two years, Klutts said each community hosted a regional event.
