Recap & Photos: November Casual Networking Event with BookBub

Imagine the perfect networking event. Great people. A fun, casual, and inviting atmosphere—and maybe even an open bar provided by a local book-industry sponsor? Well, that just happened. With the support of BookBub, we put on this month’s Casual Networking Event last Wednesday, November 18 at Meadhall in Cambridge.

This event was a huge success: probably one of our best yet. It attracted about 100 people, which occupied almost the entire second floor of Meadhall. The venue was perfect: a cool, casual, and modern venue with dim lighting and fabulous 90s music that night.

This was our first Casual Networking Event with an open bar, and we were excited to be able to offer this to our community of publishing professionals and students. Huge shout out and thank you to BookBub for sponsoring.
