The Record to Beat Is 1068 People for “Most People Attending A Business Speed Networking” (Multiple Venues)
The first speed-networking record was set in Toronto in May 2012. Since then, it’s been broken five times. The current record for “most people attending a business speed networking event” (multiple venues), 1,068, was achieved by JCI Limburg (Belgium), in Flanders, Belgium, on November 17, 2014.
On September 17, Donna Smith Bellinger / Group Endeavors will host Chicago’s participation in a Guinness World Record attempt organized by WomenPartner.org to break JCI Limburg’s speed networking record. Synchronized events will take place in Chicago and 9 other cities around the globe starting at 12 PM Central. Metropolitan Club located at Willis Tower will serve as the venue.
Chicago- area business women and men will be able to network and promote their businesses while giving back to their community.
To gain entry, they are asked to bring a donation of school supplies and food items. The person who donates the most school supplies and food items will win a prize. Representatives from Greater Chicago Food Depository and the Cornerstone Academy will be on hand to receive the items.
