We will welcome almost 300 guests at the Sofia Event Center, and together with our friends from the U.S. Embassy in Bulgaria, we will celebrate Thanksgiving.

“For the third consecutive year, AmCham Bulgaria is recognizing its most active members. These nominations prove the fact that members’ engagement grows and they recognize Chamber priorities as their own. We are happy that our business community is vibrant and provides tangible results in favor of the industries and to the society as a whole.”

About The AmChampion Awards

The idea is dated back in 2019 when the Chamber introduced its upgraded benefits for its members, and introduced in 2021..

The goals of the awards include recognition of the most active and engaged members for the past year. Also, being a community award and gathering – it focuses attention on those that contributed the most to the initiatives of the Chamber. The awards, as per criteria and proven data, express gratitude to all.

Moreover, the awards emphasize that our platform has a variety of activities that bring value to our community. It is worth mentioning that such an acknowledgment develops the AmCham identity and increases membership satisfaction.
