- Our signature flagship event
- Guest Permitted
- Hospitality Environment
- Keynote Speaker
Created as a hospitality event for members, as a high-profile keynote speaker is featured. The speaker is not a business speaker who will deliver a business-heavy topic, with key takeaway’s. The purpose of the speaker is to evoke feeling in the attendees, some who will leave the guests feeling some emotion, whether its motivation, inspiration, drive, or renewed passion. The speaker is typically well known and highly respected in their field, some of celebrity-status, which is why this event lends itself to hosting guests. Members are encouraged to strategically select guests to attend for their own values, guests are not to be brought as a part of a membership drive or for BCA purposes.
The Breakfast boasts an attendance of approximately 200-300 attendees, with roughly 60% being members and 40% being guests. The morning starts at 7:00am and is specifically designed to have everyone out and on with their day by 9:15am.
Speaker Receptions are held the evening prior to the Hospitality Breakfast and are hosted (sponsored) by one of our members, as a part of their overall Relationship Marketing Strategy (and membership agreement). Speaker Receptions were intentionally created as a smaller, more intimate forum for our members and their invited guests to build relationships in a more casual social setting. The Speaker Receptions serve as the platform to welcome our Breakfast keynote speaker to Philadelphia.
Guests are permitted and welcome at Speaker Receptions, but you will typically see a 80/20 split, 80% members, 20% guests. With most of the guests being with the host member. The average attendance at Speaker Reception is 75-100 pp.
Black Label Events are BCA’s most exclusive highest-level environments designed for BCA Decision Makers only.
Black Label Events take on many different forms and looks, but ultimately provide an opportunity for BCA Decision Makers to strengthen relationships with their fellow BCA Decision Makers in a comfortable environment.

May only be attended by the approved decision maker for your company (no substitutions permitted).
