REGISTRATION IS CLOSED | 2020 Annual Meeting

Monday, June 29, 2020 from 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM

Annual Meeting registration is officially CLOSED. We look forward to seeing everyone on Monday! 

Our Annual Meeting is the top Greater Boston business convening of the year, and this year we are committed to bringing our community together virtually. Historically drawing more than 1,800 of the region’s leaders for a celebration of our Greater Boston business community and thriving economy, we hope you will join us as we make this year even bigger, and more accessible than ever before.

Moving Boston Business Forward is the only direction. The future of work is here and our region and community are ready to take on the challenges of a changed world. Despite the true hardships caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Chamber’s diverse membership continues to lead the tough conversations and effort demanded to move our economy forward and keep our region, businesses, and people thriving long term. There is no going back, only forward together. 

Join us as we welcome leaders in business and government, a keynote speaker, musical performances, and the newest award winners who will be inducted into the Academy of Distinguished Bostonians. This iconic event is one you won't want to miss!
