Event description
We're finally out of lockdown and it's almost Christmas... Let's reflect on the ups and downs of a crazy 2021 over a drink or two...

About this event

The LinkedIn Local Hamilton Christmas Party

A lot of small businesses don't get a Christmas Party.

Let's all get together for a Christmas party - LinkedIn Local Hamilton style!!

As usual, there are free food & drinks provided to attendees.

And feel free to dress in your best Christmas gear! (even if that's just a Santa hat or Reindeer antlers)

🎁 PLEASE bring along a can of food to put under the tree.

We would LOVE TO DO A CHARITY AUCTION to raise money for those in need this Christmas. But we need items! It could be a product or service from your business or something you personally want to donate.

Reach out if you would like to include an item in the auction - leave us a message.

The video below is from last year's Christmas party, where we raised over $4000 for the Salvation Army.

What is LinkedIn Local?

If you've never been to LinkedIn Local Hamilton, it's probably unlike any networking event you have been to before - certainly not a chamber event...

Gone are the cliché sales pitches and receiving multiple business cards. Instead, it's like hanging out with friends at a party or bar... But all of those friends are successful professionals!

Free food after a long day's work and free drinks to help with the networking!

The original idea behind LinkedIn Local was to meet the person behind the LinkedIn profile. Taking relationships created online, and meeting in person. The events started in a small Australian town called Coffs Harbour, where a local woman asked her LinkedIn connections who wanted to meet up for coffee, and hash-tagged it #LinkedInLocal.

18 people turned up for coffee, but people reacted around the world, and the concept spread around the world.

We have been doing it in Hamilton for four years now, this is our 17th event!

Over 2500 people attend those events.
