After Hours Networking makes a welcome return to Pattaya


Jameson’s the Irish Pub was once more the venue for the quarterly After Hours Networking organized by the British Chamber of Commerce Thailand on Wednesday the 11th of May.

After Hours differs from many other networking events around town, in that these events are very casual and have no entry fee; people simply pay for their own drinks which are at a discount rate. Landlord Kim Fletcher also lays on complimentary finger food.

The networking commenced at 6pm and ran for roughly two hours with quite a few familiar faces in attendance, including BCCT Executive Director Greg Watkins, Rodney Charman (President of the Rotary Club Eastern Seaboard), Mark Bowling, who organizes the event and is Chairman of the BCCT Eastern Seaboard.

There were also a good number of attendees who were in the process of setting up business in Thailand who used the event as a means of introducing themselves and to make new contacts.

The next After Hours will be held in approximately three months’ time, details of which will be published beforehand in the Pattaya Mail.
