Networking at Noon

Lunch, we all do it. Since you will be eating anyway, why not get the most you can out of it by expanding your business and building relationships? Networking at noon is a unique and relaxed networking opportunity in which each guest has a chance to strategically connect with a diverse group of business professionals in the Sandy Springs business community. This is achieved by giving guests 30-seconds to present their business over lunch. Attendees are given the opportunity to meet everyone in attendance, without even leaving their seat. Networking at Noon is the third Thursday of the month (schedules are adjusted for holidays - please see our calendar for the most up-to-date information).

1 DDOn behalf of the Sandy Springs Perimeter Chamber, I welcome you to Sandy Springs, the second-largest city in the Atlanta metro area. Sandy Springs and the Perimeter area are at the crossroads for business in the Southeast at I-285 and Ga. 400.

In 2017 we look forward to many great things continuing to happen in our community. The construction of the Mercedes-Benz USA headquarters will be well under way. And the much-anticipated City Springs, the $300 million mixed-use project that will become our city's cultural heart, should be completed by the end of the year.
