2017 BABC Transatlantic Conference – Navigating the New World
By Alicia Talucci, BABC Coordinator

Every year, the British American Business Council picks a chapter to host its Transatlantic Conference. This year the Transatlantic Conference will be held in “The Windy City”. Chicago will host participants on May 10-11, 2017 for an invigorating discussion based on the thought leadership of Senior Executives.

This year’s theme will be “Navigating the New World,” a perfect sentiment to the changing international economic climate. The majority of the focus will be on the new opportunities presented to the US, Canada, & Europe, the realities these countries will face upon new trade agreements, changing economies, and new leadership and governance.

Many are buzzing about the relevance this particular conference has in light of so many changes around the world. CEO of the British American Business Council, Jeffries Briginshaw said, “This yearly conference brings together our UK-US business network to offer thought-leadership and substantive networking. Now, more than ever, business leaders are seeking connections with each other and engagement with local governments on both side of the Atlantic, in order to better navigate an uncertain global future.”

Laurence Geller, Chairman, 2017 Transatlantic Conference said, “It is this backdrop of uncertainty and change that makes BABC’s Annual Transatlantic Conference so exceedingly important. With Thought Leadership as its underlying theme, the discussions will not only inform, identify the power and relevance of strategic partnerships and, without a doubt, provide an important voice in the policy debates proliferating on both sides of the Atlantic.”

This year’s conference follows two very successful conferences in London and New York. Engage with over 2,000 member companies from 22 chapters worldwide. Build valuable business connections, and connect with experts to shed light on the exciting future that lies ahead.
