It’s been a year of unprecedented challenges. But to everything there is a season and now is the season to celebrate both the accomplishments of 2019 and the actions being taken to grapple with the challenges of 2020. In other words, it’s time for the 2020 Top 100 Awards.
The Fort Worth Business Press announces a group of business leaders who excelled in 2019 and continue to find success under the difficult, unexpected circumstances in 2020.
The Top 100 event will be Tuesday, Nov. 10, in the lush outdoor gardens of Joe T. Garcia’s, starting at 6 p.m. for networking. Dinner will begin between 6:30 -7 p.m. The venue is large and open so everyone can celebrate in a friendly, inviting, socially distant space.
“We have one of the best groups of top business leaders in Tarrant County this year,” said Richard Connor, owner and publisher of the Fort Worth Business Press. “They are all incredible folks and you’ll want to get to know them better. We have a venue where we can both social distance and have fun – Joe T’s. This will be a great night and a time to gather and celebrate – safely and in true Fort Worth fashion.”
