2022 Transatlantic Business Conference

September 7-9, 2022


Once a year, the British-American Business Network brings together members of all 23 chapters throughout the US and UK at its Annual Transatlantic Business Conferences, for a 3-day program of high-level business discussions and networking with business executives actively involved in transatlantic business.

The British American Chamber of Commerce for the State of Ohio is a chapter of the British-American Business Network, the leading transatlantic networking organization. The Network is committed to promoting transatlantic trade and investment among our international group of businesses.

The Network is the largest transatlantic networking organization, with 23 Chapters across the UK, US and Canada, including over 2,000 member companies and more than 10,000 business executives. The organization is committed to helping companies connect and build business on both sides of the Atlantic.

The format is a multi-track conference covering four industry sectors that are vital to the U.S. and U.K.:  Aerospace, Finance, Law, and Health Care. We are proud to collaborate with partners that include the Cleveland Clinic, the Ohio Aerospace Institute, JobsOhio, DIT and many others to help ensure we have a successful and content-rich conference as we have in previous years. This year’s conference will be held in Cleveland, Ohio at the InterContinental Hotel. The dates of the conference run from 7-9 September. On the 7th we will be hosting our annual Ryder Cup event with our conference welcoming reception that evening, which leads into the main portion of the conference on 8th & 9th September. The agenda outline can be found here.

In addition to attendees to this year’s conference from our 22 chapters and our event partners, we are also going to be welcoming a trade delegation (spearheaded by the City of Mentor, Ohio) from the Midlands – as well as potentially another trade delegation from Northern Ireland.
