Join us in Birmingham as senior business executives, government officials and academics come together and create the 2018 Transatlantic Conference of the British-American Business Council. A robust gathering of global thought leaders across North America and the United Kingdom to discover and understand new opportunities and to build demonstrably relevant relationships.
Once a year the BABC brings together members of all its 23 chapters throughout the US and UK at its Annual Transatlantic Business Conferences, for a 2-day program of high-level business discussions and networking with business executives actively involved in transatlantic business. The conference has previously been held in the cities of New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, London, Washington and San Francisco.
This conference will welcome 300 Senior Executives from across the BABC network including Chairmen, CEs, CEOs, FDs and HR, GMs, MDs, and Directors from chapter member firms which include many of the US & UK’s largest manufacturers, exporters and professional services companies.
