2018 Annual Meeting

Tuesday, May 15, 2018 from 4:30 PM - 8:00 PM

The Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce's Annual Meeting is the business event of the year, bringing together more than 1,700 of our region’s leaders for a celebration of the Greater Boston business community and our thriving economy. This year, we have selected the Annual Meeting theme of “Boston Now and Next.” The theme is designed to recognize the Greater Boston business community’s global leadership and its commitment to Boston’s future. It is a celebration of the collaboration across sectors and industries that are keeping Boston at the forefront of today’s knowledge-based international economy, and ensuring that our region remains the best place for all to thrive.

This year’s inductees into the prestigious Academy of Distinguished Bostonians were chosen because they exemplify what makes Boston great today, as well as the commitment to keeping Boston great for many years to come. The inductees will join an accomplished group of Academy members, including business leaders, philanthropists, local and national elected officials, cultural dignitaries, and sports greats.

This year’s keynote is a rockstar who understands the challenges and opportunities of staying competitive in a global marketplace as well as attracting and retaining world class talent: Bozoma Saint John, Chief Brand Officer for Uber. Read her bio below.
