Annual Meeting and Trailblazer Awards

Every year, Downtown Fort Worth, Inc. hosts our Annual Meeting and Trailblazer Awards. This unique luncheon, business meeting, awards show, live entertainment and development presentation shows guests exactly what Downtown is all about.

In March, the coronavirus required postponement of the DFWI Annual Meeting scheduled for March 19, 2020. As the months went by, we held out hope for an in-person event. Clearly, that is not to be this year.  

With the support of our sponsors and ticket holders, we have moved forward with the production of a virtual 38th Annual Meeting. The Annual Meeting premiered on September 15, 2020 and is now available to watch.
