The deadline is fast approaching to join hundreds of the North Bay's business leaders at the year's biggest networking event, the North Bay Business Journal's Book of Lists celebration from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday.

The annual event has become a fixture for the region's business community and a first chance to obtain a copy of the Business Journal's flagship research product, the Book of Lists. The desktop volume includes the latest data for hundreds of North Bay companies, serving as a go-to reference for business research and accompaniment to the Business Journal's weekly publication.

"The Book of Lists release party is just that, a party. There's no agenda other than seeing friends and business acquaintances and getting the year off to a great start," said Business Journal Publisher Brad Bollinger.

Held from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Doubletree Hotel in Rohnert Park, the event will of the feature hors d'oeuvres, North Bay wines and a prize giveaway.

Reservations are available on, or by calling 707-521-5264. After Jan. 17, reservations will be available at the door, and will include a subscription to the North Bay Business Journal for new subscribers.
