The event had two sponsors, the first being the Hard Rock Hotel Pattaya, famous for its huge pool, foam parties, musical themed rooms and of course the Hard Rock Café. Also supporting the networking was a language company called Wall Street English, which provides a unique learning method that combines the best education methods into one study cycle, allowing students to learn English in a natural way and speak it with confidence.

The Drum room is a meeting space above the Hard Rock Café and was the ideal venue for this type of event. A circular air con room, it has an outdoor terrace for those wanting to catch the sunset over Pattaya Bay.

The staff from the Hard Rock ensured that the glasses were kept filled and there was a tasty selection of snacks.

Despite this being a monthly event, it still managed to attract a number of familiar faces and a good number of business people who were attending for the first time. As one woman commented, “Business is slow at the moment, so we have to get out there and let people know about us.”
