[Brandon, Florida] Several years ago, when someone mentioned the area of “Brandon” they were referring to a Blvd, rather than the thriving community that it is today. A big part of Brandon’s growth is due to the many Hispanics/Latinos that have been relocating into the area, and also to the many Hispanic/Latino owned businesses that are opening up shop there as well.
Working to welcome this growth is Latin Times Magazine, a local bilingual publication that caters to Tampa Bay’s Hispanic/Latino community, and the Tampa Latin Chamber of Commerce, which will be hosting a business networking event on the 2nd Friday of each month in Brandon, Florida at Boomerang Martini & Tapas Lounge, located at 2016 Town Center Blvd in Brandon, FL.
These events were created in order to offer Tampa Bay’s business community the opportunity to meet and network with other area business professionals in an upscale environment. The Latin ConneXions series of events attract both Latinos and “non-Latinos” alike and typically draws over 150 business professionals. These networking socials are among the biggest and most exciting “after-work” business events in Tampa Bay, and have been held successful events in Ybor City, downtown St. Petersburg, Largo, Chicago, and in the Metro Orlando area.
Exciting LIVE Performances, Tropical music and Disco!
Free Dance Lessons are provided after the event. This event will take place between the hours of 5:30 – 8:30 PM. Door cover charge is $5.00 and includes a hot Latin Tapas buffet, compliments of Bommerang’s Martini & Tapas Lounge. (5:45 – 7:00PM) Parking is FREE and there will be many great giveaways. So grab your dancing shoes and a stack of business cards and join us!
