Pac-West launched a new series of regional events on January 14 in Seattle, Washington, called Pac-West After Hours. Similar programs took place in the San Francisco Bay Area and Denver this year. 

You can network just about anywhere: a trade show, a sales call, even where you work. The catch is that while all of these locations may be chock full of people who would make a great addition to your professional network, these are not times and places that are optimized for networking.  

Pac-West After Hours gives people in the fastener industry a chance to meet their peers and expand their professional networks. And there’s no charge to attend! 

Nearly 50 people attended the first event in Seattle, which took place at Via Tribunali in the trendy Georgetown neighborhood. Pac-West owes a debt of gratitude to Rick and Jill Peterson of All-West Components and Fasteners for organizing the event and hosting food and beverages. 

In April we visited the San Francisco Bay Area and Silicon Valley, with an After Hours event at Faultline Brewing Company in Sunnyvale. 70 people enjoyed food and beverages hosted by Star Stainless Screw and door prizes donated by BHJ Bay City Screw & Bolt, Metric & Multistandard Components Corp., The Olander Company, and Star Stainless Screw. 

Our third After Hours event took place July 14 at the ViewHouse Eatery, Bar, & Rooftop in downtown Denver, with a great turnout of 50 people. Our thanks go to Brighton-Best International and Tortoise Fasteners for donating door prizes.

Pac-West territory covers thirteen states and two provinces in western U.S. and Canada. While the association holds quarterly dinner meetings and events in Southern California, these are the first networking events we’ve offered outside So Cal.
