Connection Series

Rethink the Value of Networking with GACC Midwest

Network. Inspire. Benefit.

Our Connection Series rethinks the value of networking by offering participants the chance to benefit from the expertise within the German American business community.

We’ve expanded our events in Illinois and Michigan to include networking opportunities over lunch and happy hours, featuring high-profile special guests eager to share their knowledge. Learn something new to benefit you and your company, and make new connections while you're at it!

What makes the Connection Series special?

  • Learning from high-profile special guests and getting to know potential business partners
  • Exploring attractive locations around the Midwest, including going behind the scenes at our member companies
  • Seizing opportunities for both small talk and in-depth discussions

The Connection series offers unique value to all attending, championing transatlantic business in its purest form.
