BCCI Innovation Gala Dinner & Business Excellence Awards 2023
On 25 May 2023 The British Chamber of Commerce for Italy (BCCI) will hold its annual Gala Dinner and Business Excellence Awards ceremony in Milan with Guest of Honour Edward Llewellyn OBE, His Majesty’s Ambassador to the Italian Republic and San Marino. This is the flagship event in the Chamber’s calendar and one which brings together the most prominent representatives of the Chamber’s business community.
This year’s Gala will focus on innovation, which has been a pillar in the programming of the Chamber for many years, alongside DE&I and trade relations between Italy and the UK.
The Chamber’s unique tradition encourages our Community to develop new and creative strategies whilst honouring the past. Like an ancient oak tree, whose long and winding roots are living far beneath the surface and providing each of its branches with the necessary nourishment and stability to thrive, since its creation over a century ago the Chamber and the BCCI Community are integral for the success of our Members’ businesses. Whether innovation is linear or disruptive within our organisations, it is vital that we remain current and adapt to the fast and often unpredictable evolutions of the world in which we live and operate.
During the evening, we will be presenting the BCCI Business Excellence Awards 2023 for the following categories:
Innovation Evangelist supported by BAT Italia
Energy Innovation supported by BSI
Innovative Sustainable Development supported by CBRE GWS
Innovating Sustainability supported by Marsh
Let’s experience and celebrate our traditions and our Community’s innovation by taking part in the 2023 BCCI Gala Dinner.
