OABC to host Speed Networking Event on Aug 24

18 Aug 2020

While many of Oman’s professionals are still working from home, and in-person events are not yet possible, business networking in the sultanate has not really stopped. In fact, seeking out ways to connect, develop business relationships, and find new opportunities is now more important than ever before. 

On August 24, the Oman American Business Center (OABC) will host its second digital event devoted to business networking and the organisation has opened online registration for the wider business community. Business owners and executives will meet for fast-paced, one-on-one sessions for two minutes at a time. In the course of the event, each attendee will meet dozens of other professionals and be given many chances to share their own business with others. 

“This is our second online speed networking event,” said Rebecca Olson, Executive Director of OABC. “But it’s our 11th time hosting a fast-paced event in this format. There is a really great energy that comes with so much opportunity and so many introductions in just one hour. We receive great feedback every time from people who were very glad they came and met new connections in the Oman business community.” 

OABC is inviting top representatives from its 165 member companies to attend and has opened the door to other leaders, as well, for the session on August 24. 

“We are excited to invite the wider business community to try out a new type of networking and to see our largest Speed Networking event yet,” Rebecca continued. “We’re also proud to partner with OABC Corporate Member and leading international research firm – The Business Year (TBY), to ensure that as many professionals as possible will be able to take advantage of this opportunity.” 

The event is for executives, owners, and business development professionals in Oman. Interested attendees may register for the free event at www.oabc.org/events and will receive details confirming eligibility and a link to log on for the meeting on August 24. 

The Oman American Business Center is best known for hosting high-level professional networking events and informational sessions for professionals across the sultanate. As the official affiliate of the US Chamber of Commerce in Oman, the OABC is devoted to supporting the development of commercial relations between Oman and the US, and also focuses heavily on networking Oman’s business community through unique events and programmes year-round.
