A Message from Queens Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Thomas Grech
The Queens Chamber hosts over 250 events each year. From our annual Business Expo at Citi Field to Business Card Exchanges around the borough to Educational Seminars, we are continually looking for ways to advocate, educate, and engage our members.
Putting on successful events is what makes the Queens Chamber shine in its role as a business advocacy organization. Our staff works very hard to make sure they go off without a hitch. Thank you to all those who work behind-the-scenes to make sure our members are getting the most out of their experience at our events.
In June, the Queens Chamber launched its Restaurant and Hospitality Committee in an effort to increase referrals and synergize members of the industry. We want to be the primary resource for event management companies, restaurants, hotels, and others who are looking to make their places-of-business more well-known throughout Queens.
As we say here at the Chamber, a rising tide lifts all boats. We are here to be that rising tide.
As summer is in full-swing, we are preparing for several major events. The first is the 2017 US Open at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows Corona Park. Over the course of two weeks, more than 700,000 people attend the US Open, making it the largest-attended annual event in the world.
Here, the Queens Chamber takes a kiosk and offers visitors information on business and tourism in the borough.
We are also hosting our Annual Golf Outing on September 28 at North Hills Country Club. All are welcome, and many sponsorship opportunities are available. Further, we are honoring Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown for his tireless public service.
We are also honoring Albert F. Pennisi, special counsel with Daniels Norelli Cecere & Tavel PC, and John “Sean” Crowley, a partner at Davidoff Hutcher & Citron LLP.
Come October, we have our Business Person of the Year event on October 18. Please look for an updated event listing on our website at queenschamber.org
