Networking Groups Invited To Break Guinness World Record

The Record To Beat Is 1068 For "Most People Attending A Business Speed Networking Event" Multiple Venues

The first speed-networking record was set in Toronto in May 2012. Since then, it’s been broken five times. The current record for most people attending a business speed networking event is 1,068, achieved by JCI Limburg (Belgium), in Flanders, Belgium, on 17 November 2014.


The previous record was set by Australian Institute of Management Queensland, Australia on 17th October 2013 with 475 participants, snatching the record from Hong Kong. There are a lot of businesses and organizations who are chasing the record.
