Triangle technology workers and entrepreneurs will gather in Durham on Tuesday for the NetSuds networking event held in conjunction with Durham Bulls baseball.

NetSuds’ quarterly gathering of telecommunications, data communications, information technology and Internet networking professionals will feature a picnic with food, beverages and a block of reserved seats for the game.

“NetSuds’ goal is to bring people together to share ideas and create new business contacts that will lead to increased commerce here in the Triangle,” Nathan Becker, co-director and organizer of NetSuds Raleigh/Durham, said in a statement. “We anticipate that having our summer gathering with a Durham Bulls game as the backdrop will offer a casual atmosphere to get some business done.”

Since its inception in October 2001, NetSuds events have drawn increasing interest, with the first event attracting 200 individuals representing more than 80 companies.

“Each time we meet we increase the opportunities for business development,” Stephan Hagege, NetSuds Raleigh/Durham co-director and organizer, said in a statement. “Our second event featured Raleigh Mayor Charles Meeker and drew upwards of 300 attendees. Our third event, held at the Capital City Club, drew more than 350 attendees.”

Online registration and payment is available. Cost is $30. Space has been reserved for the first 200 people.
