Unique Networking Events

BEMA Connect: One Member, One Baker, Connecting

BEMA Connect introduces bakers to suppliers they aren’t currently working with and matches the baker’s needs with your specific solutions. Meet one-on-one with baker guests, speed dating style.

 

Small Group Dinners with Bakers

Connect with customers in a small-group setting. We’ll organize groups of eight bakers and suppliers – spouses/guests included – to enjoy local restaurants.*

 

Golf Tournament

Each year, we choose a great course as the setting for the BEMA Cup.  Bring your clubs and compete for the cup!

 

Tennis Tournament

Not a golfer? No problem! We are bringing back BEMA Tennis for Convention 2020. Bring your racket and friendly competitive spirit!

 

Theme Dinner

Join us for an evening of music, food and fun with a theme. More information coming soon.

 

Chairman’s Dinner

Celebrate a great year as we pass the gavel to the next chairman, then dance the night away.  The whole family is invited to this event.
