Why you should attend the BCC Annual Conference

As we count down to next month's Annual Conference, here are five reasons to attend ‘Beyond 2020: Business Priorities for the Next Decade’ on March 5.

1. Discuss and help shape business priorities and best practice for the next decade

Britain’s departure from the European Union will bring both challenge and opportunity to the business community. We will discuss how firms are leading the way in regeneration, embracing new working practices, creating the jobs of the future and setting environmental standards across the UK.

The British Chambers of Commerce and its network is committed to supporting business during this time of change. In2020 and Beyond: business priorities for the next UK government’, we set out what policymakers must do to enable businesses of all sizes to reignite the country’s economy. The 2020 Conference will keep you up to speed with ideas that reflect the priorities of 110 business communities represented by the BCC.

2. Hear the latest policy developments

Stay up to date with the latest thinking in Westminster and understand how this will affect UK businesses, ensuring you are best informed whatever the future may bring.

As the UK shapes a new trading relationship with Europe after 31 December 2020, the BCC wants the voice of business – your voice – to be at the heart of the negotiating process. Help us communicate that message to policymakers on March 5.
