Businesses continually operate between all four nations of the United Kingdom and an effective strategic transport network is critical to that.
Our aim is to celebrate the strength and success of business across the UK. BCC events provide businesses with opportunities to connect with potential customers, peers and parliamentarians.
In addition, your local Chamber runs events throughout the year allowing you to connect and network with other companies, showcase your business and keep up-to-date with the latest news, issues and sector insight.
The Conference is one of the main events in the business calendar and attracts senior cabinet ministers, policy makers and business leaders.
