The British American Chamber of Commerce (BACC) provides a variety of services to build strong ties and build effective business relationships between US and UK companies throughout Central Florida . Since Britain is one of Central Florida’s largest international trading partners and approximately 400,000 British Nationals live and work in Central Florida area, the British American Chamber of Commerce has become a vibrant resource for building business and establishing relationships between the two countries. BACC’s focus is creating and providing introductions to the business community, specifically targeting Central Florida. BACC is the conduit for those wanting to explore ways to do business in either the Florida or UK markets.
The BACC has established a long history of success in connecting British businesses to the United States, through corporate, social, cultural and sports activities as well. Members offer international experience, and a global perspective that can accelerate new business growth within the region. The chamber provides abundant opportunities for businesses to network and engage with the local community which supports Central Florida’s efforts to engage the global economy through international trade. By locating the British American Chamber’s office within the National Entrepreneur Center, the chamber has been able to provide valuable insights and perspectives for local companies considering international trade, while easily connecting chamber members to the free business coaching, and low cost business seminars offered at the E-Center.
The British American Chamber’s newly appointed Board of Directors are committed to continuing to build and promote ties across the Atlantic, therefore, serving as the premier gateway for connecting both national and local corporations within the British American business community in Central Florida; while also continuing to develop and deliver innovative programs (Corporate, Social & Cultural and Sports) to meet their members’ needs. Currently, the chamber is exploring the potential for Post Graduate Transatlantic Education Scholarship between the US and the UK in the hopes of expanding the business outreach efforts to include educational opportunities as well.
