Do you have a card? Network at Metro Detroit’s largest ever card exchange

Want to get some real networking done in a beautiful setting? The Detroit Metro Convention and Visitor’s Bureau and Sterling Heights Chamber of Commerce have collaborated to host the largest business card exchange and networking event the metro area has experienced.

It’ll be held Wednesday, August 22 at 5:30 pm at the scenic MacRay’s Harbor Bistro in Harrison Township. This is an inaugural event, with the goal to make it an annual occurrence.   The venue holds 300 people, and early registration is encouraged to reserve a spot.  For non-chamber members, tickets are $25.00, which will include appetizers.  A cash bar will also be available.  Spending an evening overlooking Lake Saint Clair is an added bonus.

“The value is in providing attendees to meet other local business professionals in a beautiful waterfront setting”, says Marketing Director Lisa Edwards.
