Dear BABC Members and Friends,

We are delighted to launch Brit Invasion 2013 on Thursday, March 7th from 11:30 am – 2:00 pm during a very special program: British Business in Bloom: A Brilliant! Opportunity to Network, Learn, Dine and Visit the 2013 Philadelphia Flower Show.

The BABC is honored to support the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS) on its 184th Philadelphia Flower Show, this year featuring the sophisticated design sense of London. You will be beckoned to enjoy British heritage and culture right here in downtown Philadelphia by over 10 acres of traditional British icons including the Royal Palace gates and a sculptural digitally enhanced, sound and light show rendition of Big Ben. There will be something for everyone – the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, Sgt. Pepper’s Band, Jack the Ripper’s Whitechapel, a floral presentation of the Crown Jewels, a cricket club, London streetscapes, cottage gardens, etc.

Please join the BABC for this exclusive lunch in the Pennsylvania Convention Center Skybox overlooking the central feature of the 2013 Flower Show. You will meet and hear from featured speakers, Drew Becher, President, PHS and Chris Woods, Director, PHS Meadowbrook Farm, who will discuss the economic and community impact of the Flower Show and this year’s British theme. See for yourself why the world’s largest indoor flower show has such a staggering economic impact on our region each year.

Don’t miss this special opportunity! There is no need to cross the Atlantic Ocean or suffer from jetlag. On March 7th take a brief break from your busy day and join the BABC for this truly “Brilliant!” event. We look forward to welcoming you to everything British right here in Philadelphia. Please bring your clients, colleagues and friends. Space is limited. Click here to register. Your ticket purchase will include the BABC private luncheon, food and beverage, presentations, networking, and entrance to the 2013 Flower Show. We look forward to seeing you.
