      Business After Hours Presents: Red Fez Bar & Grille

    The right atmosphere for effective networking: Held on a monthly basis, Business After Hours events provide just the right social and informal atmosphere for effective networking. There’s ample opportunity to generate quality leads and enjoy drinks and hors d’oeuvres.

    The contacts you want to make: Every Business After Hours event attracts business professionals - the majority are key purchasing decision-makers, including many company owners and presidents. The event sponsors represent a wide range of industries and provide a great opportunity to uncover new business prospects and gather information on products and services your company needs. By attending, you can build your business network and gain valuable information, for less than the cost of a business lunch. $10 for members or $15 for non-members.

    Timely and effective:  This two hour time frame gives you the opportunity to tour the chosen location, discuss and share ideas while learning about other local businesses. It is a relationship building experience held in a relaxed setting that benefits you and your company through added contacts and resources. Stay for 20 minutes or enjoy the full two hours. Enjoy the refreshments while giving people a chance to get to know you - that way they will want to do business with you!

    Don’t forget your business cards!

    Salute Breakfasts

    The Greater Chicopee Chamber Salute Breakfast attracts some of the most recognized business and political figures and extremely notable speakers throughout Western Massachusetts.  Meetings are held in multiple venues to give area businesses a chance to see what each venue has to offer and includes a full buffet breakfast.  New member recognition is acknowledged and a member of our Breakfast Committee or Ambassador Committee is provided for first time breakfast meeting attendees.

    The Chamber also offers limited table space for each breakfast sponsor attending breakfast to display their businesses up front.  Requests for these tables must be made in advance, and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

    Our Salute Breakfasts are informal networking events held at our member companies. Attendance ranges from 75 to 125 people.  At Salute Breakfast, attendees are invited to introduce themselves to other businesses, enjoy refreshments, beverages, raffle prizes, and more.  All breakfast events take place from 7:15 am to 9:00 am unless otherwise noted.

    CEO Luncheons

    Every quarter the Chicopee Chamber recognizes a local chief executive officer (CEO) for outstanding participation in vendor development and community activities as well as establishing and building economic equality for local enterprises.

    These quarterly events provide attendees with the opportunity to get to know local leaders on a more personal level, and perhaps walk away inspired. CEO's share the story behind their accomplishments, while enjoying a home style buffet lunch at The Collegian Court.
