Our Grow Globally Fairs are signature events that bring together the global tribe in a trade fair setting. They feature the best international organizations within a region so that members are able to meet their key personnel simply and easily.
Thank you to the full house of globies for the 10th Annual Grow Globally Fair Phoenix, with all the global resources, all together, one time per year.
Since Global Chamber® has only been around for just over 4 years, it might seem confusing that this was the 10th annual event. That's because prior to our launch in November, 2014, we had been doing this and other events regularly, testing the idea of a 'global chamber'.
There was no holding us down! We moved forward! And we're always happy to feature this event in many metro areas.
There were a number of award winners for this specific event and they're shown below. Congratulations, everyone!
Also below are some pictures from the event. And Chamber Business News wrapped up the event with a write-up on several of our award winners HERE. Special thanks to Polsinelli law firm for sponsoring! And we also thank Tommy Bahama for the gift basket!
