The Burlington Business Association (BBA) is excited to announce its 40th Annual Dinner and Awards will be held on Thursday April 5, 2018 at the Hilton in Burlington. Since 1978, the BBA Dinner has been a celebration of Burlington’s business community, and the individuals and businesses that make the city of Burlington a great place to do business. The BBA Annual Dinner will be an evening filled with surprises, complete with a live auction, wine pull raffle, and delicious dinner. The event culminates with the presentation of the BBA awards.
The three awards honor the innovative business practices, individual contributions, and architectural achievements of Burlington’s businesses. Last year we honored Seventh Generation for Business of the Year, David Provost as the winner of the Tim Halvorson Award for Business Person of the Year, and Select for our Architectural Excellence Award, as well as a special recognition for the Vermont Air National Guard. Each of these winners stands as an example of the businesses and organizations that drive Burlington’s economic vitality. On April 5th, a new round of winners will share this recognition. We will be announcing the winners within the next month.
