Making Connections: “Expand Your Circle Influence” Networking Event

Expand Your Influence Event

The Washington DC Metro area is home to some of the most influential and successful businesses in the country, but uniting these organizations can prove to be a challenge; especially when they are from different regional areas and operate within different industries. We realized that creating an event that could connect industry influencers in the region could help forge key partnerships, advance participants’ business goals, and in turn make the region stronger as a whole.

On April 12, Trade Center Management Associates (TCMA) in partnership with the chambers of commerce from DC, Dulles, and Alexandria produced the second “Expand Your Circle of Influence” event held in the Pavilion at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center (RRB/ITC). Hundreds of executives gathered for an evening of networking and business matchmaking.

As a premier event venue, we serve as a regional hub for the business community. TCMA strives to make the RRB/ITC a forum where thought leaders gather, ideas are exchanged and connections are fostered. By serving as the platform for local chambers and our clients to expand their circle of influence, we aim to create opportunities through events like this that have a meaningful impact and shape local policies and global outcomes.

Thank you to our event attendees and sponsors. Please contact us if you’d be interested in participating in the next installment of Expand Your Circle of Influence.

  • “Olivia and team, I can’t thank you enough for hosting such a wonderful networking event, Expanding Your Influence.  Quality venue, food, and drink, only outdone by the excellent networking that took place.  In my 3 hours there, I walked away with over a dozen really good business contacts and with follow up already in process.  Doing this with other chambers only helps matters as there’s a familiarity in mission and freshness in interaction. Very much looking forward to the next one – count me in!”
