Vibrant Asheville Business Networking Party - Pack's Tavern Downtown

Wow! What a year we had! Many business relationships were formed! Many deals were made! Vibrant Asheville Business became the area's premier networking group. We have fun doing business!

Let's start off 2014 with a big fun and productive networking party!

Food – Drinks – Friendship – Business. More great reasons to join Asheville's Premier Networking Group, Vibrant Asheville Business™. This is our 8th consecutive month - thanks everyone! Please share this with your friends and colleagues.

To date, there have been numerous deals, collaborations and a couple people got jobs. Way to go! It's not about the numbers of attendees but the quality of our members, like you. Come join us for another fun and productive evening! 

Please share this great local business party with your sphere of friends, colleagues and clients!







We are excited to announce our very popular monthly gathering of our wonderful local business people. Vibrant Asheville Business™ gatherings are open to the entire business community. Sometimes, we’ll collaborate with other groups. Invite your business friends and colleagues. Let’s network over great food and drinks!

Vibrant Asheville Business™ creates communities online so you can create relationships in person.

Our next gathering will be in the South Bar in Pack’s Tavern. Pack’s is downtown right next to the city and county buildings. Please register on one of the Vibrant Asheville Business™ sites or come with one who is.

There is a cash bar and a full menu is available. You can mix and mingle or you can stay for dinner. You are encourage to Eat with Someone Strange. This way you get to meet a lot of people and then form deeper relationships over a meal. If you're eating dinner, please tell the hostess as soon as you arrive. Remember, eating and drinking at our host venues makes them happy to see us next time.  Pack’s Tavern is a small, local business. Many thanks to owner Ross Franklin who has been so gracious and nice to work with to make a great event for all y'all! 

Bring business cards and marketing material. We have a table for everyone's stuff. Bring your thirst. Bring yourself and enjoy fun conversation and building relationships. Who knows? You might leave having made a new friend or even a client!

One of the cool things about VAB events is that you can attend as often as you like. So RSVP on Meetup or Eventbrite or send Alan an email.

And be sure to share with your sphere!

Please…when joining a Vibrant Asheville Business™ group, we ask that you use your full personal name and a recognizable face photo. We can not approve memberships using company names. Some prefer to use their logo for their photos. Networking is much more personal and effective when you use a recognizable face photo. Don't be a No-Show. Our parties are productive and fun. You should be there! But update your RSVP so we don't overstaff the event which costs the venue and our servers their hard-earned money.

    Wow! 91 terrific Vibrant Asheville Business members attended this wonderful event. More important than the great numbers was the energy from so many awesome local business people. We weren't just doing business, we were beginning new friendships and strengthening our relationships already in practice. How many networking parties include both the Theme from Shaft and the Stay-Puft man? Thanks everyone for a fantastic time!
