    Kicking off the evening, a unique 30-min Speed networking event via our Hopin event platform will provide guests with an opportunity to meet, network and schmooze with local businesses, sponsors, local councillors, MPs and members of the Brampton Board of Trade.




    All guests will have the opportunity to indulge in a sumptuous and unique dining experience from the comfort of their home – meals will be prepared by your choice of one of our 6 member restaurants (ready for curbside pickup before the event), while online entertainment will be provided by the one and only DNA Project. New this year is an online silent auction boasting fabulous items from our local business community.
