Let's Break A Guinness World Record
"Most people attending a business speed networking event"
Your Organization / Small Business Is Invited To Partner To Break A Guinness World Record On New Year's Eve
WomenPartner.org is inviting business people (women and men), chambers of commerce, Shop Local groups, professional groups, networking groups, publications, business schools, women's business centers, coffee shops, etc., to join forces on New Year's Eve to break a Guinness World Record for "Most people attending a business speed networking event" (multiple venues).
It's a fun way to end the year before you attend your evening New Year's Eve parties so you can jumpstart 2015 with new business.
Current Record For Single Venue: The most people attending a business speed networking event was 487 and was organised by Entrevo Limited at the Mermaid Theatre, London on 17 October 2014.
Assigned Guinness World Record Minimum Requirement To Set New Record: 5 venues; overall total must exceed current single-venue record (487). In short, we have to give 5 in-person speed networking events simultaneously with a minimum of 488 people. We'd prefer to have a total of 500 people. They've provided the steps we must take to properly document the events and acknowledge participants.
We don't just want to meet the minimum requirements to break the record. We want to shatter it so that anyone tries to break our record has to work extremely hard. WomenPartner.org doesn't have to personally give the speed networking events. They can be held by anyone around the globe. All of the events must start at the same time and they have be documented with photos and video.
The New Year's Eve speed networking event won't take you away from your evening activities. It will take place during the day. After the event, there will be an online afterparty for participants who want to meet the business people from the other events.
