CONNECT – SHARE – PROMOTE

The British Chamber of Commerce for Italy is a vibrant business community rooted in British values and international best-practices.  Its focus is to aggregate both British and non-British businesses, independently of size and sector, to provide Chamber Members with opportunities, knowledge sharing and trusted interpersonal connections.

The Chamber typically runs frequent face to face events on a variety of topics and catering to different target audiences (CEO, HR, CFO, Head of Tax, Legal Counsel,…), however, due to the COVID-19 situation, temporarily all face to face events have been postponed and seminars and introductory meetings are being carried out online.  We look forward to returning to our customary formats as soon as authorities confirm it will be safe to do so.
