ConnX is IBA’s regularly- scheduled, signature monthly networking event. It provides opportunities for IBA Members as well as non-members to connect, provide referrals and additional connections within their individual networks. ConnX events are free to IBA Members and, at a low cost admission ($15) to non-members, encourages attendance and membership development.

Our ConnX events are the Greater Philadelphia area’s largest and most well-attended LGBTQ+ monthly business networking series. These events are normally held on the third Tuesday of every month at member venues and businesses. All costs associated with the events are covered by the IBA venue or Member sponsor. Each event draws between 75-150 attendees, from all industries and backgrounds. IBA ConnX launched in January 2014 upon absorbing the Greater Philadelphia Professional
Network (GPPN, another area LGBTQ+ professional networking group), in order to better serve our Members. Absorbing GPPN and its member database increased our own database outreach by 1000+ LGBTQ+ individuals in the region. Once in the fold, the IBA conducted a full rebranding effort and IBA ConnX was born to great fanfare and success.
