Networking, Cold Beverages and...Baseball? KCNext's IT Happy Hour

KC Next hosted the IT networking event of the summer was Thursday at the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum.

Hundreds of IT and marketing professionals met over complimentary drinks and hummus (because what Kansas City networking event doesn’t have hummus?) and the atmosphere was ripe for making connections. The room was filled with lots of familiar faces.  After all, Kansas City has that great small town feel where you really can get to know just about everyone in the industry at these events.
Seriously, have you ever networked in a cooler place? 

In addition to getting their mingle on, attendees had the chance to win some awesome raffle prizes (including an iPod shuffle and an Apple TV, just to name a few).  These prizes were given out between 6:00 and 7:00PM. to the joy of the networkers - all while surrounded by baseball paraphernalia and facts about some of the sport’s greatest players in our history.

A big thanks to KCNext, the organization who made this Happy Hour a homerun for Kansas City entrepreneurs and businesspeople!
