-- Business operators representing specifically the East End wedding and special event services industry gathered in Mattituck on November 13 to munch on tasty refreshments and sample local wine while they explored ways to collaborate on services to clients and customers.
The event, sponsored by Peconic, NY based NorthForkWeddings.com and hosted by Cedar House on Sound B and B, is the first Members Mixer held by the popular online wedding, party and hospitality services directory. North Fork Weddings, Ltd. president Judy Baker McCleery told the group that the networking evening fulfilled an important goal she has held since 2010 when she took over the directory from founder Marguerite Schondebare.
“NorthForkWeddings.com and its sister website SouthForkWeddings.com serve two equally important audiences,” Ms.McCleery said. “There are the visitors to the websites—the customers—who are seeking reputable services providers, and then there are the directory member vendors, the service providers, who list in the directory. Networking and collaboration among the members is so important to delivering high quality services to their shared customers. This first of what I hope to be many members mixers allows NorthForkWeddings to facilitate that collaboration.”
Ms. McCleery compared NorthForkWeddings and SouthForkWeddings network to a chamber of commerce specifically for East End hospitality and special event services, allowing customers to more easily find the service provider they need.
