Host an Event

Looking at bring new people through your doors?  Want to showcase your business or venue?  Consider hosting a After Hours Business Mixer in conjunction with the Burnaby Board of Trade!

Businesses and organizations of all kinds are welcome to host — past events have been successfully held at diverse hosts such as restaurants, financial institutions, printing shops, hotels, gyms, and offices of all kinds.

BBOT After Hours Business Mixers are casual receptions hosted by local businesses/organizations that function as networking events for members to connect and socialize with one another. Depending on the venue, date and venue capacity, our reception attendance tends to range from 40 to 60 people. These events are typically held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays between 5:30pm and 7:00pm and we do not exceed one such event per month.

Hosting an After Hours Business Mixer is a great way to showcase your company and bring people through your doors who might not otherwise know who you are.  The BBOT helps publicize the event and the host organization through promotion across our various communication channels. Where applicable, hosts will be highlighted with your logo, hyperlinks to your website, and a short company bio.
