KC Chamber 2020 Annual Dinner Virtual Event

Tuesday, November 24 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm • Organized By Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce


No matter what 2020 throws at us, when Kansas City comes together, we truly are unstoppable. 
The Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce 133rd Annual Dinner isn’t even a dinner this year, but that’s not going to stop us! On Tuesday, November 24, during the workday from 3-5 p.m., the KC Chamber will have an Annual Dinner like no other, to celebrate the achievements we’ve made together in a year that’s been like no other. Join us online from wherever you are for a fresh, fun, and exceptional virtual event.  
The festivities will start with a full hour of networking, just as you would enjoy at our event in any other year. But this time, you’ll be popping in and around virtual rooms,  hopping from virtual table to virtual table, to have face-to-face interactions with your coworkers, your clients, your old friends, and the new ones you just haven’t met yet. That’s from 3-4 p.m.
From 4-5 p.m., we will hear reflections from Chamber leadership, we’ll make the surprise announcement of the Kansas Citian of the Year, AND we’ll welcome our two featured speakers, both representing Unstoppable KC talent:

  • Heidi Gardner, actress and Saturday Night Live cast member from Kansas City, MO
  • Aaron Thomas, producer and award-winning television and film writer for Friday Night Lights, CSI:NY, and S.W.A.T., from Kansas City, KS

In addition, for the first time in our history, Annual Dinner is completely open and will be welcoming to all, including members and non-members. Early bird pricing is just $20 per log-in location through October 27 for everyone.  After October 27, tickets are $35.
