Simpson Spring, host

Our host, Simpson Springis the oldest independent bottling plant in the United States, providing pure spring water and old fashioned, hand-mixed sodas. Participants of the networking event will be able to take a tour of the family-owned and operated business, including a look at the facility and the spring itself. Located in South Easton, Simpson Spring is more than just a bottling plant: they run a company store, museum, and Saturday market.
