Hartford Business Hall of Fame Awards Ceremony & Dinner

When: TBD
Where: Hartford Marriott Downtown - 200 Columbus Blvd. Hartford, CT 06103
Time: 6:00pm - 9:00pm

Due to the current health crisis and keeping the health and safety of our staff and constituents as our number one priority, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the 40th Annual Business Hall of Fame in Hartford.  This event will now occur in Spring 2021 at the Hartford Marriott Downtown, located at 200 Columbus Blvd. Hartford, CT  06103.
Last year, over 300 attendees gathered to recognize Connecticut's most distinguished business leaders.  JA honors Hall of Fame recipients for their leadership, success in business, and community involvement. Past recipients include entrepreneurs, CEOs, and presidents of both public and private companies, who have achieved extraordinary successes and continue to help shape Connecticut.
For more information on this prestigious event email Jacqueline Lombardi.

President and Chief Executive Officer Hartford Steam Boiler


Yvette Melendez
