Coffee & Connections

Mark Your Calendar Now For 2021 Holiday Coffee & Connections & Holiday Open House!

Keep an eye out for your official Holiday Coffee & Connections invitation and join us on Wednesday, December 8th, at the Holiday Inn of Weirton/Steubenville- Area.

Coffee & Connections is casual, fun, and the perfect way to share news about all that your business or organization has to offer. After a delicious hot breakfast, each attendee gets the opportunity to give a brief commercial about their business or organization and distribute business cards, brochures, coupons or other promotions. Be thinking about your ugliest sweater too, and compete for a full year of complimentary admission to Coffee & Connections in the ugly sweater contest.

There’s no charge for the workshop, which will run from 10:30 to noon and no RSVP is necessary for the either of the post-Coffee & Connections events.
