The New Jersey Chamber of Commerce will now hold its annual “Walk to Washington” event in April after being forced to postpone the two-day networking trip last week after a snowstorm blanketed parts of the Northeast.

Originally slated for Feb. 13 and 14, the event, now in its 77th year, will now be held on April 22 and 23 at the same location as previously scheduled, the Marriott Wardman Park in Washington, D.C.

"The Walk to Washington has been the state's ultimate business networking event for three quarters of a century," chamber president Tom Bracken said. "It has become an institution in New Jersey and it will go on."

The trip features a chartered Amtrak train from points in the Garden State to the nation's capital, where guests then attend events and a dinner which will once again feature a keynote address given by Gov. Chris Christie.

Also invited are U.S. Rep. Chris Smith and U.S. Sens. Bob Menendez and Cory Booker.
