Annual Events

Throughout the year, the Addison Chamber of Commerce & Industry schedules meetings with members and guests, often combines with other area chambers, highlighting special speakers and informational subjects, as well as business networking opportunities. Each year in January, the ACCI holds its annual meeting and election of officers and directors, at which time the Mayor offers his “State of the Village” address.

Business-to-Business and Public EXPOs

Several EXPOs are held each year, where goods and services tailored to the business community and public are exhibited by the participating vendors. Attendance is free, and area restaurants provide complimentary food samples. One of these events is the annual Five Star EXPO & Health Fair, sponsored by five local chambers of commerce: Addison, Bartlett, Bloomingdale, Carol Stream and Glendale Heights. Exhibitors from area businesses and health care providers offer valuable information to the business community and residents.

The Passport to Success EXPO is a multi-chamber networking event with exhibitors from numerous area chambers of commerce.

Special events throughout the year include:

Annual Student Honors Banquet: A special evening devoted to recognizing Addison Trail High School top graduating seniors. At this event the Addison Chamber of Commerce & Industry and other scholarships are presented.

Annual Golf Outing: A fantastic networking and advertising opportunity where advertising sponsorships are available, where attendees can enjoy a day of golf followed by a great buffet dinner. The day includes prizes, special events and more. A portion of the proceeds from this event are directed to the chamber’s scholarship fund.

Annual Mayor’s Community Charity Ball: A black-tie-optional event where the community comes together to help support the good works of Addison’s nonprofit service organizations.
