B2B Networking at Biz Connect

Creating strong business connections can be achieved in many different ways, but face-to-face interaction is often seen as a critical component of successful business development. As such, our annual Biz Connect is an incredible in-person B2B networking event that fosters business connections and gives our members the opportunity to meet other MBEs and business partners!

B2B networking at Biz Connect can be used to establish partnerships, generate leads, and build a strong network of contacts that can help your business to grow and succeed. By collaborating with other businesses, B2B networking leads to increased opportunities, improved brand recognition, and ultimately, higher profits.

2023 Biz Connect: Network & Navigate

Join us for a summer evening cruise around the New York & New Jersey harbor

Anchors Away! Set sail with the NYNJMSDC staff, corporate partners, certified-MBEs, Registered Business Enterprises (RBEs) and more at this exclusive B2B networking event.

Biz Connect is one of the Council’s signature events and always provides incredible opportunities to make lasting business connections. This year—for our 50th Anniversary—we’re embarking on a new adventure: a sunset sail and premier cocktail experience aboard a luxury yacht, The Horizon’s Edge. Get ready for an unforgettable evening! We’ve worked with one of New York’s premier yacht experiences to plan a voyage with breathtaking views of the New York skyline, the New Jersey waterfront, the Brooklyn Bridge, Governors Island, the Verrazano Bridge, the Statue of Liberty , and so much more!

As we sail on the Hudson and East Rivers guests will enjoy an open bar—including a 50th Anniversary Signature Cocktail—passed hor’d’oeuvres prepared by The Horizon’s Edge chef, a surprise DJ, renowned MC, and two dance floors! As you enjoy breathtaking views of the New York and New Jersey harbor, you’ll have ample opportunities to connect with other members in our network and build lasting memories with those onboard.
