Black Brick Bar

Columbus, OH 43201

The SMPS Speed Networking Happy Hour will provide a fun, informal, and most importantly, no-pressure atmosphere where AEC professionals can meet others in the industry and sharpen their networking skills. The event will allow attendees to quickly network and exchange contact information with dozens of people in the industry in a condensed 60-minute timeframe. Attendees are strongly encouraged to arrive on time, as speed networkers need to be seated and ready to begin by 5pm.


Event Date & Time:

4:30 pm – Arrival and Check-in
5:00 pm – Speed Networking
6:00 pm – Open Networking

Enjoy an evening outside on the patio at Black Brick Bar in the Short North while meeting AEC professionals. Through a speed networking setup, (yes, it sounds cheesy, but it’s really fun. We promise! ) quickly chat and exchange contact information with dozens of industry marketers in this informal setting. Sharpen your networking skills by practicing with dozens from the AEC industry, and have the opportunity to talk about subjects that you maybe wouldn’t otherwise. (Like “What show are you currently binge watching?” or “What is your favorite thing to do in Columbus?”)

Black Brick will have dozens of summer ales to choose from, and feature two special SMPS Cocktails! Be sure to bring your business cards too. Registration is at 4:30, and the actual speed networking begins promptly at 5:00pm. Also, the first drink is on us, and light snacks will be provided!

What did attendees have to say about the last speed networking event?

“The speed networking event was fantastic!  It gave me the opportunity to get to know my fellow SMPS members. We not only discussed our firms and teaming opportunities, but also made personal connections that will be mutually beneficial both professionally and personally in the future. I can’t wait for the next event,” -Kristin Studabaker, Business Development Manager, Carpenter Marty Transportation

 "An easy and enjoyable way to make new connections, and also a great opportunity to catch up with old friends and colleagues,–Tim Berical, PLANIT Studios
