West Berkeley Design Loop Mixer Overview
All members of the West Berkeley Design Loop are invited to host a community mixer!
Here are a few details and answers to questions you might have.
-Why host a mixer?
Hosting a mixer is a fantastic opportunity to let the community know your unique offerings. As a host, you are encouraged to give a presentation on your work. This can vary from an informal talk to a slideshow, typically lasting 5-10 minutes. You can also offer a tour!
-What we offer hosts?
WBDL will send an email introducing your business, including a photo and write up you provide and, of course, a link inviting people to explore your website. This will go out 2-3 times before the mixer, and another time after.
-Who gets to host?
Only members are invited to host.
-What are host responsibilities?
Please plan on refreshments for 20-30 people. What you offer is up to you, but past hosts have provided a cheese platter with crackers (including gluten free), hummus or other dips with cut veggies, chips and salsa, nuts and olives, dried and fresh fruit, something chocolate, and a couple bottles of wine along with a non-alcoholic beverage like kombucha or juice. One host had a large pot of lentil soup as well as some middle eastern style appetizers, so feel free to get creative!
-What we need ahead of time for promotion?
Photo/s, a brief company description or pitch, details about parking or entry, if any, and what visitors can expect to see.
-What are the Design Loop’s responsibilities?
We will take snapshots, provide name tags, sign in sheets, wrap-up details if any. Lawrence or another member will stay until the last guest leaves, for clean up help and security.
Please contact Rachelle Padgett, WBDL Outreach Coordinator, with any questions or concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org We look forward to seeing you!
