Whoaaa, is it Spring already? Sure feels like it around here in West Michigan. Today's a little gloomy, but it's supposed to be a pretty beautiful week around here, so that means it's time to head out to some great Grand Rapids marketing and networking events happening around town! Here's a few to bookmark for this week:

Business Exchange Luncheon

Are you a member of the Grand Rapids Chamber of Commerce? If so, this is the monthly networking event you won't want to miss! This Thursday, you have a chance to showcase your business, promote your products, and find that next business partner or unexpected supplier for your business needs. The luncheon features relaxed networking as well as facilitated tables during lunch. $25 for members. RSVP right here. 

Measure What Matters Mixer

Join us at the crew from Local First on Thursday evening for their first "Measure What Matters" Mixer event! Attendees can chat with other values-aligned organizations and companies who are looking for ways to use their business as a force for good. The folks from The Image Shoppe will talk about becoming a certified B Corp and why they value honesty and transparency. The beverage sponsor Brewery Vivant will also be on site to talk about their sustainability journey.  The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments and hors d'oeuvres provided. Even though the event is free, they want you to register right here. 

Network at a Great New Hot Spot!

The folks over at Business Networking and Beers are offering a fun opportunity for those who love to network. The brand new "Craft Beer Cellar" located at 404 Ionia isn't opening for a few weeks, but the owners are having a sneak-peek event for interested Grand Rapids networkers. It's happening Wednesday night from 4-8 pm. It's free to attend, but they want to know you're coming so RSVP here. 

Got 5 Seconds? If so, You Could Win a $100 Gift Card

Lastly, you might have heard that we are working to grow our blog subscribers this month. If you sign up here to become a subscriber to our amazing, wonderful, and earth-shattering (okay, maybe I've gone a little too far with that one) blog during the month of March, you are automatically entered to win a $100 Amazon gift card! It takes less than 5 seconds, and we promise we won't blast you heavily with emails, just 1 or 2 a week notifying you of great marketing insights or wonderful content that's recently gone live here on the ManoByte blog.
