The Cobb Chamber will hold its first Business After Hours networking event of the year on Thursday, February 8, at Live! at the Battery Atlanta, located at 825 Battery Ave SE, Suite 600 Atlanta GA 30339. The venue is adjacent to Truist Park, the home ballfield of the Atlanta Braves.

… and why is networking important for a local business?

Networking is crucial for businesses for several reasons. 

Firstly, it provides an avenue for building and nurturing valuable relationships with potential clients, partners, and industry peers. These connections can open doors to new opportunities, collaborations, and insights that might not have been otherwise accessible. 

Additionally, networking allows businesses to stay updated on industry trends, market dynamics, and emerging technologies, helping them adapt and innovate. 


Moreover, a strong network can be a source of support and advice during challenging times, whether seeking guidance on problem-solving or simply sharing experiences. 

Ultimately, effective networking enhances a company’s visibility, credibility, and growth potential in an increasingly interconnected and competitive business landscape.
