AmCham Bulgaria organizes many events in line with its mission and according to the interests of our membership: regular monthly meetings, conferences, business breakfasts and luncheons, business after hours, public events, sports events etc. Dates, venues and agenda are also announced in the AmCham Weekly Newsletter and on our homepage.
Conferences and Forums
AmCham Bulgaria organizes high-profile local and regional conferences. The themes we discuss relate to national and global economic policies and relations and aim to improve the business climate and the stakeholders’ dialogue. Our guests typically include business seniors, political speakers, government officials, diplomats and media representatives.
Roundtables and Seminars
Throughout the year AmCham Bulgaria also organizes series of practically-oriented roundtables, seminars and lectures, where we give our members the opportunity to discuss with key government officials the changes in current legislation, to initiate new business opportunities and to promote member initiatives.
Business Breakfasts and Luncheons
It has become a tradition over the years for AmCham members to meet the Prime Minister during a working business luncheon in the beginning of the year. The format, which is very popular among the membership, also offers the opportunity to discuss hot topics, which arise through the work of the AmCham Committees.
Business After Hours
This is an exclusive opportunity for AmCham members to promote and advertise their business, services or products. Business After Hours is an informal evening gathering starting with a presentation of the host companies followed by a networking cocktail. The overall organization of the event is conducted by the AmCham team. Business After Hours is an ideal opportunity for finding new business partners and exploring new business opportunities. Access is limited to AmCham members and guests to the host company.
Meet the New Members
The Meet the New Members Party is intended for companies who have recently joined the Chamber and would like to be officially introduced to the AmCham community. The party starts with brief presentations of the new members’ profiles and goes on with a light networking cocktail. The new members are given exclusive marketing opportunities to display branded stands, distribute promotional materials and advertise their services in an informal atmosphere.
AmCham members are also invited to special happenings throughout the year celebrating great American and international holidays.
Each year in February or March AmCham holds the annual Ski Tournament, bringing together government officials and representatives of the business, the diplomatic corps and the media for a closed race and a great after party. Other sport events, organized by the Chamber throughout the years, have included Golf Tournaments and Tennis Tournaments. The AmCham Annual Independence Day Celebration is one of the greatest and most anticipated events of the Chamber and brings together Americans and Bulgarians with their families and friends to celebrate the National Day of the United States. It is a traditional 4th of July celebration with fireworks, barbecues, picnics, concerts, games, entertainment for the kids and many attractive prizes. A typical AmCham Independence Day Celebration gathers over 3000 participants, including U.S. Embassy officials, government representatives, diplomats, businessmen and journalists.
The AmCham Thanksgiving Community Dinner is inspired by the American Thanksgiving holiday tradition and is dedicated to charity. It is a family gathering with live music and entertainment, and the typical Thanksgiving menu. We also hold a fundraising auction, silent bid and a raffle. The AmCham Thanksgiving Community Dinner is a high profile family gathering giving the business an opportunity to bond and rally around a noble cause. In December we round off the activities of the year by inviting all AmCham members and friends to an unforgettable Christmas Party with live music and dances until late in the evening.
