Networking opportunities are a valuable aspect of ASB meetings.  Use the breaks, meals and receptions to network with your fellow delegates.

Opening Reception

TUESDAY * FEBRUARY 28, 2023    5:30 pm – 6:30 pm

Start your Tuesday night off with the BakingTECH 2023 Meet and Greet!  After the MarketPlace, join us for hors d’oeuvres (and a drink!) and connect with old friends and make new ones.

Tuesday night’s Opening Reception is sponsored by Bimbo Bakeries USA – Entenmann’s, Little Bites, Sara Lee and Thomas’ English Muffins.

Young Professional

WEDNESDAY * MARCH 1, 2023    7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

40 years and younger? Mix and mingle with other young professionals as you catchup with friends and make new ones during this exclusive networking party held at the Game Room, Chicago Athletic Association.

Originally the billiards room of the old Association, Game Room is reborn as a casual playground tribute to our clubby past for a new era of competitive smackdowns.

Sporting a fresh and multifarious nightlife experience on the Association’s second floor, a cocktail culture paired with classic suds and grub, plays exceptionally well with the gamesmanship you’ll find on the built-in bocce bay, billiard, shuffleboard, chess and checkers tables.

Young Professional Events are sponsored by Campbell Systems, Inc and Mother Murphy’s Flavorings & Extract Co.
