Networking games and Icebreakers foster teamwork, fill a room with energy, break up cliques, and engage new guests. They’re a great change of pace from the typical chamber gathering. Done right, networking games can help increase future attendance through positive referrals.
At our June 2016 After Hours Networking Event we introduced a new event theme with a networking game – Luck of the Draw! From the start of the event attendees broke off from their normal cliques and began creating teams. The game was a huge success and created lots of laughter and facilitated conversations. 5 players won great gift baskets. 6 Gift donators received recognition. It was great to see so much movement and dialogue between the attendees. We can only hope the game inspired a few business deals as well.

We encourage any organization, chamber, or business to enhance their next event or business meeting by trying a networking game.
Congratulations to our Luck of the Draw Winners with the winning hand- Straight Flush!
