The Greater Washington Board of Trade’s events provide regional executives opportunities to exchange ideas, make new connections and maintain business relationships.

Executive Engagement

  • Economic Roundtables — These events provide a forum for senior-level leaders to discuss the state of Greater Washington’s regional business economy that covers a wide range of issues and provides an excellent ear to the ground on current conditions. Each attendee offers their views on their industry, business outlook and any emerging trends.
  • Executive Breakfasts and Lunches — These intimate sessions provide the opportunity for senior-level executives to connect in meaningful ways. Attendees will learn more about the regional business community, by engaging in conversation on the economy and business in Greater Washington. We present a relaxed atmosphere where you will get a better sense of things in this market and meet several other business leaders.
  • Executive Salon Dinners — These intimate dinners are excellent opportunities for top-level executives to connect with peers, hear from distinguished speakers, participate in thought-provoking discussions and enjoy delicious meals served in a very special setting.

Signature Events

  • Board of Trade Annual Meeting — A tradition since 1889, the Board of Trade Annual Meeting gathers its members of the Greater Washington business community to recognize the accomplishments of the year and provide a forecast for the year ahead.
  • Mid-Winter Dinner — Widely regarded as the premier business event of the year, the Mid-Winter Dinner continues its tradition of top-notch networking with those who get business done in Greater Washington. There are no speeches.
