Business Recognition Luncheon


This marks the 31st year the Greater Green Bay Chamber will celebrate the success of area individuals and businesses at the Business Recognition Luncheon.

This year we are also encouraging businesses to exhibit at the Business Recognition Luncheon, where there will be a great audience for them. With more than 450 attendees each year, this event is a singular opportunity for member businesses to receive valuable exposure and make connections.

We also added in a new sponsorship level focused towards smaller businesses. The Bronze Sponsorship level is priced to be affordable for small businesses so they can also get exposure at the event without breaking the bank.

Honor individuals and business in the following categories:
