Annual Event

Our biggest, must-attend event of the year is back and better than ever! The best part about it? You can choose how to participate. 

If you're a networker, join us at Annual Event for the biggest networking reception we offer, complete with delicious hors d'ouvres and beverages on us. You read that right, this portion of the evening is absolutely free!

If you want to be more engaged in the progress of our community, join us for the Annual Event reception AND dinner, where we will hear from our keynote Richard Florida.

Florida is a researcher and professor, serving as University Professor and Director of Cities at the Martin Prosperity Institute at the University of Toronto, a Distinguished Fellow at New York University’s Schack Institute of Real Estate, and a Visiting Fellow at Florida International University.  He is a writer and journalist, having penned several global best sellers, including the award winning The Rise of the Creative Class. Florida joins us on his book tour for The New Urban Crisis which takes a look at how our cities are increasing inequality, deepening segregation, and failing the middle class-and what we can do about it.

What are you waiting for? Register today!

All proceeds for the Annual Event fundraiser contribute to the operations of the Indy Chamber.
