About Chamber Events
Our Chamber hosts many different events to assist members in maintaining exposure amongst the business community as well as educating our members on different business topics.
Business of the Year Awards
The Business of the Year Awards are organized by the Red Deer & District Chamber of Commerce and held annually in October in conjunction with BDC’s Small Business Week. The Business Awards are presented in five categories to exceptional businesses within the Red Deer area. All companies, Chamber members and non-Chamber members are eligible to be nominated for an award. Finalists in each of the four categories are selected by an independent judging panel. Watch for nominations to open annually in May!
Business After Hours
This mini-tradeshow is hosted by a member business and is a great opportunity to create and renew contacts in the business community, and discover what other member businesses offer. You must be a Chamber member to be an exhibitor. It is held on the last Tuesday of September, October, November, January, February, March, April and May.
Luncheons are held from September to June and feature speakers on a variety of business topics. This is an exclusive opportunity to learn from industry experts while networking with local business people.
Professional Development Workshops
We offer "Building Business Breakfast” morning sessions, “Lunch & Learn Brown Bag” and "Knowledge Cafe" lunch sessions. These workshops span a variety of business topics and are held at the Red Deer & District Chamber of Commerce.
Breakfast with the MPs
This annual breakfast is an opportunity for members to connect with our local Members of Parliament.
