The Fort Collins Area Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce the 115th Annual Celebration is set for January 29, 2020, at the Hilton Fort Collins, 425 W. Prospect Road.


More than 600 Chamber members and others from the area are expected to come together to celebrate the success of the Fort Collins Chamber and the business community. This year’s theme will incorporate how the Chamber has been a Catalyst for business growth, a Convener of leaders and influencers, and a Champion for stronger communities. 


The Chamber is also excited to change up the program this year and offer a late-afternoon, high-energy program followed by networking that includes heavy hors d’oeuvres and drinks. The schedule is as follows:

4 p.m. – Registration and Seating in the Ballroom 

4:23 p.m. – Program

5:30-6:30 p.m. – Networking

7 p.m. – Event Ends


 “As an organization, we are regularly considering interesting new ideas to make our events and messages stronger, more interesting and attractive,” said Ann Hutchison, Executive Vice President of the Fort Collins Area Chamber of Commerce. “We think the new design allows for the ability to deliver key messages in a timely and interesting fashion, while providing extended networking opportunities.”


The Chamber will continue the tradition of recognizing the Collins Award Winner, the Chamber Board of Directors and the Volunteer of the Year. Last year’s award winners included Dr. Tony Frank with Colorado State University and Valerie Arnold with Hub Real Estate. 


Tickets for the 2020 Annual Celebration are available for $65 per person. Last year’s event sold out, so advance ticket purchasing is recommended. Click here to purchase tickets. Sponsorship opportunities are also still available by calling (970) 482-3746.
