NORTH BAY -- The Business Journal will release its annual Book of Lists next Wednesday, Jan. 20, at the North Bay's biggest networking event of the year.

The Book of Lists Celebration Party, which attracts hundreds of leading business people from throughout the North Bay, will be held again this year at the Doubletree Hotel in Rohnert Park from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

The 220-page Book of Lists compiles all the lists published the previous year. In addition to the names, addresses, phone numbers and Web sites for the largest businesses and their leaders across virtually every industry in the North Bay, the book also includes original research in guides and directories of key industries, company leader profiles and an extensive compilation of business and economic data.

All executives that appeared on the lists throughout the year were invited to attend the event as a Business Journal guest, making it a high-level gathering of top North Bay decision makers.

Registration closes this Friday and includes a copy of the Book of Lists. To purchase a ticket, $50 per person, or to RSVP to an invitation, contact Linda Perkins at 707-521-5264 or events@busjrnl.com, or register online at www.northbaybusinessjournal.com.

Carpooling is encouraged, as parking will be limited, and Doubletree staff will be available to direct attendees to available spaces.

The Book of Lists will be sent to Business Journal subscribers on Jan. 25. Our next regular issue will be Feb. 1.
