Scott Babashak, GFP Investment Services Inc., Bethlehem Chamber Chair
Please be aware that the date of our State of the City Address with Mayor Bob Donchez has been changed from February to March. The event’s new date is Thursday, March 9 - and as before – will be in the Musikfest Café at the ArtsQuest Center on the SteelStacks Campus. The breakfast will be served at 7:30am and the program will be over by 9:00am. In the last few years, this has become the Bethlehem Chamber’s highest attended event. It is not only informative and entertaining, but it is also a great networking opportunity.
In late January, we released a new Dining, Shopping and Nightlife video for Bethlehem. It has gotten a ton of views: reaching close to 50,000 people with over 250 shares on social media in just two weeks! We’ve been planning the year and have been working on everything from festivals to a new visitor’s website to informational events and …. yes, even Christmas 2017.
Three upcoming events:
Manufacturing Momentum in Bethlehem
This event will have a panel discussion about manufacturing in Bethlehem, including the “new” manufacturers of today. The event will be held in the Foundry Room of the Sands Casino Bethlehem Hotel on Thursday, April 12 at 4:00pm. Cocktails and appetizers will be served. Stay tuned for more details.
Bethlehem Chamber’s Annual Dinner
On Wednesday, May 3rd we will be holding our Bethlehem Chamber’s Annual Dinner. This event honors certain individuals and businesses/organizations and highlights a few of the Bethlehem Chamber’s initiatives from the past year. The Bethlehem Chamber staff’s favorite event, it will be held in the Musikfest Café at the ArtsQuest Center at 5-8 p.m.
The Second Annual Bethlehem Italian Festival
This festival will be held on Main St. and the Sun Inn Courtyard on Saturday, June 17. Food, music, a Meatball Contest, a Wine Trail and a Pasta Trail will all be featured. More details will be forthcoming.
