Event Description:

In case you missed it, the world stage is now our stage. When KC works together, we realize that no dream is too big to become our reality. KC may be widely known for barbecue and jazz, but to those who know us best, we’re also known for hard work and innovation, collaboration and “nice”.

These are the combined elements that make up our DNA, that fuel our community’s energy to grow, and that propel us farther and faster than anyone thought we could possibly go.

At the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce 136th Annual Dinner, you’ll learn how the KC business community is preparing for a surge of power, progress, technology, and people that will lead our region to generational change. And we are doing the work now, to make Future KC ready for all that we have coming, including the things we haven’t dreamed yet.

#KeepItComingKC

Join us as we honor outgoing Board Chair Mark Garrett of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City and welcome incoming Board Chair Lisa Ginter of CommunityAmerica Credit Union.

You won’t want to miss the announcement of the 2023 Kansas Citian of the Year.

We're excited to announce our musical entertainment this year is Kansas native Kate Cosentino. Well-versed in the art of puns and guitar-shredding, Kate’s music is something of jazzy sleekness atop the lyrical precision of witty slam poetry. Whether you saw her rock the stage as a part of Niall Horan's team for Season 23 of The Voice or saw one of her many goofy social media posts, Cosentino's fun-loving personality, unique sense of style, and witty songwriting shine through in everything she does.

Get your seats now!
