Networking Hours and #BelfastHour

UPDATE – This event is now cancelled

Last night Friday Night Mashup ‏@FNMashup cleverly jumped on the @BelfastHour networking session to promote their Christmas Party (5 December at T13 Get your tickets and more info here ow.ly/ECNiH).  

#Belfasthour was set up “to help Belfast businesses promote each other & connect.” The Twitter only event takes place every Thursday between 9pm and 10pm. It’s hosted by @Edwardsandco_

@CrawfordDorcas of @EdwardsandCo_ tells me via Twitter, “#Belfasthour starring everywhere – started just 5 months ago & already winning major awards!”. Edwards & Co is in the part of Belfast’s Cathedral Quarter where you are more likely to find creative businesses and digital start-ups – it has (by this morning 21 November 2014) 3344 followers and follows 2609.

#BelfastHour is one hundreds of Networking Hours that have sprung up. Bee Social Marketing @BeeSocialUKhave compiled a pretty exhaustive list here along with some of the back story and etiquette.
