Background on CoolTea Event Models

CoolTea Business Networking Tea PotsSince 1996, CoolTea has hosted hundreds of business networking events attracting thousands of attendees, event partners (e.g., leading nonprofits, media companies, universities), event sponsors, featured authors, speakers, workshop leaders and other experts.

Each CoolTea event model has a proven track record that appeals to different professionals. Thus each event model has a unique success formula and structure on how events are organized, run, promoted and the value delivered for attendees.

For instance, some business people prefer the structured formats of panel presentations ala our CoolTea Talks in a room of 100 or less.

Others prefer our after-work CoolTea MixedBrews that attract several hundreds in a more relaxed and social setting.

While other professionals enjoy a multi-track afternoon that is industry-centric with multiple panel and workshop sessions per our CoolTea Expoganzas.

From our CoolTea FunCommittees working the doors to our CoolTea IHave IWant mini-classified ads with online event registration, over the years CoolTea has endeavored to make business networking fun and effective to connect to new clients, funding, ideas, investments, jobs, partnerships, and projects.
