Yahoo! What You Need to Know to Survive the Stampede 2015 Networking Marathon

Networking happens everywhere at the Calgary Stampede

Throwing up on the boss’s spouse during an awkward attempt to hit on him or her is not how you want Stampede 2015 to be remembered. It's just not!

It’s billed as the greatest outdoor show on earth. It's also a networking marathon. Stampede is hard to describe to people who have never been there. The Calgary Stampede is more of an all-encompassing fully engaged experience than an event confined to a geographic location.

While 1.3 million+ will pass through the Stampede Park turnstiles for the 10 day exhibition, all star rodeo and agricultural fair, a celebration of western heritage and community spirit will spread like wildfire through the city.

Companies spend thousands of PR dollars to make their event one to remember. Being on the invite list gives access to people you would never otherwise meet.

Company presidents join 100’s of employees wearing cowboy hats, shirts, blue jeans and boots. Stampede is a time for building relationships with employees, clients, suppliers and the community.
