In addition to celebrating our honorees and the partnership between the United Kingdom and the United States, the Transatlantic Business Awards Dinner provides vital funding for BritishAmerican Business’s important work to promote a positive transatlantic business environment and help its over 500 member companies build their international business.
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to The British American Business Foundation, Inc., which makes contributions and renders financial assistance to other organizations formed and operated exclusively for literary or educational purposes.
