After Hours & Grand Openings

The BDC offers business networking events that bring together BDC members, elected officials and residents.


Berwyn After Hours (BAH) are networking events that are held exclusively at BDC member venues in Berwyn. BDC members can either host or sponsor events, which affords sponsors the opportunity to introduce their venue, products and promotions. The BDC coordinates promotion of the event via direct member mailings, newsletter and website announcements and weekly eblast reminders.

Please check the BDC Event calendar for the most up to date information on our business networking events.

Grand Opening

Grand Opening celebrations are a service that the BDC provides to newly established Berwyn businesses as well as existing businesses that access TIF or BDC Commercial Loan Program funds to improve their venues. The BDC maximizes exposure for the business by distributing a press release to local media and coordinating a ribbon-cutting ceremony with the Mayor's office.
