Ever attended a business event and made new contacts whilst drinking gin from teapots and enjoying evening afternoon tea (all sounds a bit Mad Hatter'ish!)? Well, you will at Social Cups!
This one of a kind networking event is part of the Social Road Trip series of events and is being sponsored by Rock Rose Gin, an exciting new hand crafted Scottish gin being created in the far north reaches of Caithness. For this event we will once again be returning to the ultra vintage and quirky Cups Tearoom in Scrabster.
Martin and Claire from Rock Rose Gin will be our guest speakers for the evening and will share with everyone where the idea came from, how they went on to make the idea a reality and how on earth they have managed to create so much hype over a gin that has not yet be tasted! Social media has played a big part in this journey which they will cover in more detail during their talk.
As the gin in question won't actually be ready until spring 2014 we won't actually be getting a chance to sample it but Ros and her tea set at Cup Tearooms will have lots of other goodies like boozy teapots, canapés and cupcakes laid on and there will of course be non-boozy teapots available for those of you who will be driving!
This event will be very social and informal and there will be plenty of opportunities for networking so don't forget those business cards!
You could say it will be a gin tea party with a twist of business!
When & Where
The Highland Social first began back in April 2011 at Contrast in Inverness and was set up by Michelle Russell of Snow Marketing to allow businesses from across the Highlands to meet up 'socially' and share their experiences and stories of using social media for business.
Due to success of the first few events the Highland Social was turned into a bi-annual main event with mini seasonal 'Social's' and casual 'Social's' happening in between to keep everyone up to date with the latest social media news!
In 2013 we also introduced the #socialroadtrip which takes the networking events and social media workshops to the road and out across the Highlands.
Each main Highland Social event features the famous 'social' cupcakes by Cupcake Creations Inverness and go down very well!
Sponsorship opportunities are available for all events and more information can be found on the website.
The hashtag for all Highland Social events is #highlandsocial
The nominated charity for all main Highland Social events is The Archie Foundation based in Inverness.
