The British-American Business Council of Tampa Bay, Inc. (BABC Tampa Bay) is a chapter of the British-American Business Council (BABC), the largest transatlantic business network, with 21 chapters and 2,000 member companies  - including some of the largest multinational companies - based in major business centers in North America and the United Kingdom.  Our principle purpose is to promote trade and commerce between the United States and the United Kingdom.


Locally, our membership represents a variety of companies and individuals who are either British citizens wishing to establish American contacts or setting up a business in the US, or are Americans wishing to do business in the UK and/or attract inward investment.  We have an active series of BABC Tampa Bay events throughout the year, and we encourage you to attend as many as possible.  While you don't have to be a member to participate, by becoming a member, you receive full membership privileges including access to our organization through business luncheons and meetings, after hours networking exchanges, our quarterly newsletter, access to our online membership directory, and discounts for all scheduled activities and events.
