America's Best Companies Celebrates 75 Years of Progress with Apprentice Winner, Bill Rancic

Posted by Dave Cosper on Friday, August 1, 2008

America's Best Companies (ABC) will be celebrating 75 Years of Chicago’s Progress since the 1933 World’s Fair. In 1933, Chicago hosted the Century of Progress Exposition to inspire American businesses to grow and prosper economically. The exposition inspired a diverse group of Chicagoans to rebuild their economy and city by highlighting the confidence that business owners needed to grow their companies during those troubling times. And now, on its 75th anniversary, ABC is hosting a special event in hopes to build the confidence of small business owners across America once again. Apprentice winner, Bill Rancic, will join ABC in its celebration of the development of small businesses.

The event will take place on Wednesday evening, August 13th, 5:00pm to 10:00pm in the Owner's Club at the newly built One Museum Park building in the South Loop of downtown Chicago, which overlooks the site of the 1933 World’s Fair. The night will consist of professionally catered food and drinks, live Chicago jazz band Martini Manifesto, and a Navy Pier fireworks show beginning at 9:30pm. Bill Rancic and Jim Tracy, President of ABC, will speak at the event, followed by a meet and greet session with guests. The event will be host to the most influential organization leaders, politicians, and small business activists in the Chicago area.
