Programs & Events

Business for Downtown Hartford programs a variety of events and opportunities for members to learn, talk to other business owners and aid in strengthening the network and influence of Downtown Hartford business owners.

Downtown Roundtables
Our Downtown Roundtables are luncheons with Downtown stakeholders who you might not normally get an opportunity to talk to and ask questions of. These are lively and informative discussions where the special guest or panel answers questions from attendees.

BFDH Members receive one free admission per Roundtable. Admission for Non-Members is $20. New members are welcome to put the cost of their ticket towards their membership dues. Register for the next Downtown Roundtable on Eventbrite.

The Downtown Roundtable series is made possible by support from the MetroHartford Alliance.

Hog River Roast
Details coming soon

BFDH Golf Classic
The Annual BFDH Golf Classic is an opportunity to pull back from day-to-day business and gain a little perspective. Members have the afternoon to network and discuss shared issues, or just socialize in a relaxed setting. Some of our best advocacy initiative and fundraising efforts have stemmed from a conversation out on the fairway.

More details once they’re available, but mark September 13, 2017 on your calendar!

Board Meetings
The monthly BFDH Board of Directors meeting is open to all BFDH members and invited guests. Each month we discuss initiatives, issue and projects relevant to the Downtown business community.

Board meetings take place on the 2nd Wednesday of every month at 9:00 am. They are held in the Oak Hill Conference room on the 5th floor of 31 Pratt St, Hartford, CT. Come and discuss what is important to you and to your business!
