  • Washington DC Fly in

    Annually, more than 60 Minnesota Business leaders and 15 or 20 local chambers travel to D.C. to meet with congressional leaders about important federal business issues.

    Join with Minnesota business leaders from across the state as we travel to Washington, D.C. to participate in the U.S. Chamber Small Business Summit.  The event will be held June 13-15, 2016 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel.  We customize the trip for our Minnesota participants with special briefings on Minnesota issues, and a Minnesota exclusive dinner in our nation’s Capitol.   We will also schedule appointments with members of Minnesota’s delegation on the Hill.  These events are tailored to our Minnesota audience, and on top of a high quality program of leading national business and political speakers featured at the Summit. 
    A couple of keynote speakers confirmed so far include Kat Cole, group president, FOCUS Brands and Marcos Lemonis, Host of CNBC's The Profit and CEO of Camping World and Good Sam Enterprises.
    Also, help us honor these 7 Minnesota companies that have been names among the 100 2016 Blue Ribbon Award Winners.   Seven regional finalists will be named from the 100 Blue Ribbon Winners, and one company will be named the Dream Big Small Business of the Year at the event.
