Anyone who's ever tried to expand their network knows it can be a bit of a juggling act. On the one hand, you want to meet as many new people as possible. But on the other hand, you want to spend less time arranging meetings. That's where Paperless Post comes in. We make it easy to create beautiful and professional meet-and-greet invitations—minus the hassle of addressing and licking envelopes, buying stamps, and scouting down a post office.
Create meet-and-greet invitations in just a few clicks and deliver them to your guests by email, text, or shareable link. Choose from a variety of innovative designs, add your personal touches, and watch the RSVPs roll in.
We have a library of templates that are sure to get people excited for your professional event. From colorful happy hour invitations to sophisticated cocktail party invitations and corporate reception invitations, our collections are full of variety and sure to get noticed.
Once you've found the perfect invitation use our design tool to choose a font, update the text color, and add a personalized message. Creating professional meet-and-greet invitations has never been easier.
The foundation for any well-written invitation includes the following: Who’s hosting, what the party is, why it’s happening, and the date, time, and location. After that, any additional information you include will depend on the type of meet-and-greet you’re planning. If it’s a laid-back get-together for new employees at the office, there won’t be too many extra details to include. If it’s a larger event with entertainment, speeches, and workshops, a day-of agenda will definitely be in order.
Don’t worry—you won’t have to include every last bit of information right on the invitation to your meet-and-greet. Make use of our Blocks to add links, speaker information, photos, or logistical details like travel or accommodation recommendations. The Blocks appear below your invitation so guests can quickly access everything they need in a clean, easy-to-read format.
When hosting a networking party, give your guests plenty of notice. Send business meet-and-greet invitations about two weeks before the event. This gives your guests enough time to clear their calendars, but it’s not so far out that the event will slip their minds.
The ideal venue for your event depends on the number of guests and your goals for the meetup. If you’re hosting a small seminar event where guests can mingle in a relaxed environment, a coffee shop or wine bar is an ideal location. Larger meetings like conferences and gala events that require mixing and mingling, along with presentations, are best held in a hotel ballroom or banquet hall.
Creating a guest list and sending out meeting invitations is only the first step in planning a successful event. It’s just as important to keep track of the RSVPs so that you can adjust your plans accordingly. Our RSVP tracker makes it easy to stay on top of who is attending and who is not, so you always have access to the most up-to-date numbers. Remind individual attendees to RSVP with our guest messaging tool—or use it to communicate event updates to the whole group.
