10th Annual New Jersey Networking Event & Dinner

On Tuesday, May 25, 2021, the British American Business Council of Greater Philadelphia hosted the first in person program in more than one year. This momentous event was testament to the world’s progress in fighting the global pandemic. Our 10th Annual New Jersey Networking Event & Dinner in Haddonfield, New Jersey was a wonderful reunion. The late afternoon was beautiful, warm and breezy. BABCPHL members and friends were thrilled to gather in Kings Court, just next door to the British Chip Shop for a fun-filled, socially distanced pub night. The Chippy and King’s Road Brewing Company offered attendees an outstanding selection of specialty beers and delicious appetizers, a traditional British pub style main course, and sticky toffee pudding for dessert. Before dinner al fresco, guests enjoyed networking and remarks in the Courtyard.

Antony Phillipson, British Consul General in New York and HM Trade Commissioner for North America; Hannah Young, Deputy Consul General; and Ben Brierley, Consul – Senior Trade Policy Adviser, all from the British Consulate General New York, joined us for this special evening. The BABCPHL is grateful for their support, and we are honored to collaborate with the British Consulate and the Department for International trade to enhance business ties with the UK. Antony, Hannah and Ben each said a few words about their relationship with the BABCPHL, the trade and commercial ties between the State of NJ and the UK, and the Consulate’s series of meetings with both public and private sector groups throughout the State of New Jersey this week and next.

Howard Silverstone, BABCPHL Membership Chairman, welcomed attendees, provided opening remarks, and invited each of our special guests, and event sponsors to say a few words. Following formal remarks, Paul Howard from the Philadelphia Union Foundation spoke about the charitable group’s mission before drawing the winning business cards for Philadelphia Union, British Chip Shop and King’s Road Brewing Company gifts. Attendees were invited to continue mingling in the Courtyard, surrounded by event partners, the English Gardener Gift Shop and the Queen’s Carriage who generously displayed their wares, and donated gift bags and gift cards to every attendee. As the sun went down, guests were invited to choose their tables and sit down to enjoy dinner and drinks.  Attendees remained long into the evening, continuing to network.

Special thanks to our sponsors: Citrin Cooperman, Forensic Resolutions and International Products Corporation.
