Southeast Texas Events

Better Business Bureau offers several events each year for consumers and businesses. For more information on any of these events or for partnership opportunities, please contact us.

Torch Awards for Marketplace Trust

Better Business Bureau Serving Southeast Texas conducts an annual awards competition to recognize and encourage ethical business practices. The purpose of this award is to recognize those for-profit businesses and not-for-profit organizations in our region committed to maintaining exceptionally high standards of ethical behavior in marketplace relationships.  One company will be chosen in both small and large for-profit business categories and one not-for-profit organization will be chosen, and winners of the Better Business Bureau Torch Award for Marketplace Trust will be forwarded for international awards consideration.

Southeast Texas Senior Celebration & Consumer Expo
The annual event is a festive and informative opportunity for adults of all ages, but particularly those who consider themselves to be ‘senior’. Participants enjoy educational and entertaining exhibit booths and a welcoming atmosphere that includes live entertainment! It’s an opportunity for senior citizens to enjoy a day out at no cost. The event is not only a way to learn and be educated, but have fun as well. Area businesses have the opportunity to participate and display their goods via booth spaces and network with other companies.

Shred Day

Since July 2006, the BBB in Southeast Texas has provided an opportunity for consumers and businesses to shred their confidential documents for FREE. Identity theft is becoming a huge problem and we are proud to increase awareness of the problems associated with it. The event is held twice a year.

Lunch & Learn
Want an opportunity to learn and develop professionally? With different topics such as "No Bad Days" or "Turning Customers into Raving Fans" covered throughout the year, it is a great way to improve your business and personal skills. The event includes lunch, a one-hour training session, and a great networking opportunity!
