Annual Gala Dinner and Business Excellence Awards


The BBCC Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony is one of the most prestigious events in the UK business calendar. With over 700 guests expected comprising the best of the Bangladeshi Business Community as well as leading politicians, academics and community leaders. This event and the associated landmark publications are a must if you want to both reinforce your business and access new markets. The two key publications are ‘BBCC Members and Business Directory’ and the event brochure including the ‘50 Most Influential Bangladeshi Business People in the UK’. Both these publications are a first for the UK and provide a significant new opportunity to promote your business.

The BBCC Awards showcase the achievements of British Bangladeshi Business. The ten Business Award categories are open to businesses of all sizes and sectors. The Awards offer unrivalled sponsorship opportunities for maximum brand exposure throughout the marketing campaign and at the glittering black tie event itself, which attracts over 700 guests from businesses across the UK and overseas.

BBCC’s media partners include the electronic and print media who will ensure that not only almost all Bangladeshis in the UK take notice of your business but also Bangladeshis everywhere as well as the wider non Bangladeshi communities.
