The British American Business Council (BABC) annual conference takes place from June 6 to 8 and will attract delegates from all over Britain and North America as businesses in the city, led by Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce (GBCC), seek new markets in the post-Brexit era.
Professor Julian Beer, president of the BABC Midlands Chapter and deputy vice-chancellor at Birmingham City University, said: “We are tremendously proud to have won the right to stage this important conference.
“It is vital that as a city and a country we explore new markets for the post-Brexit era and the BABC can play a vital role.
Each year, the conference brings together members of its chapters to its annual transatlantic business conference for a two-day program of high level business discussions and networking among senior executives from a broad cross-section of business sectors who are actively engaged in transatlantic business.
“The conference was a huge success five years ago when it was last held in Birmingham and we’re delighted that the spotlight will again fall on the city."
"The transatlantic relationship will be of even greater importance post-Brexit."
