Annual Signature Events

In January of every year, the Montana Chamber hosts Business Days at the Capitol. This event coincides with the start of the legislative session (odd-numbered years) and candidate filing (even-numbered years) with a focus on legislative and public policy issues relevant to business. Traditional seminars include ‘Eggs & Issues’ with the legislative leadership and the ‘Last Word’ by the Governor.  An evening of networking rounds out this event. 


Manufacturing & International Trade Day recognizes titans of industry – manufacturers and exporters. This biennial event invites organizations to showcase their business and products at the Trade Show. Solution oriented seminars, tailored to specific manufacturing and trade issues, take place during the day.  Held during the legislative session, lawmakers are invited to an evening reception with vendors and seminar attendees.


To recognize one of our state’s leading industries, the Montana Chamber of Commerce will host an inaugural event to celebrate National Travel & Tourism Week – #NTTW (May 7-13) and tourism’s intersection with the film and outdoor recreation industries as vehicles to harness the power of place, #TheLastBestPlace, as an economic driver for communities around the Montana.

Started as the Centennial Golf Classic during the 100th Celebration of Montana’s statehood in 1989, the Montana Chamber Foundation annually hosts more than 400 golfers, business & government leaders, and policymakers for this coveted tournament. More than 600 people turn out for the Glacier Bank Ace in the Hole Networking Reception & BBQ the night prior to kick off the event.


Every October, the Montana Chamber of Commerce convenes the general membership to elect the Board of Directors, review highlights from the past year, discuss actions and strategies for the upcoming year, and recognize private industry leaders. This valuable networking event creates opportunities for business leaders to meet with peers, learn more about Chamber goals and objectives, and hear from industry experts on trending issues such as elections, economy, and more.
