Membership

Britcham has been a fixture in Brazil for over 100 years and is now, more than ever, focused on being an active and effective source of support for its members; in parallel, the Chamber is continuing its efforts to attract new and retain current members. In fact, our members are our biggest partners. Companies of all sizes and from many industries that have shown an interest in doing business and building relationships with the Brazil-UK business community have been invited to become British Chamber members, helping strengthen their networks at the many events our industry committees organize to address a wide range of issues. In doing so, Britcham has created a unique and exclusive environment that nurtures business and other relationships. Britcham is a one-stop-shop for networking events (breakfasts, lunches, dinners, seminars, receptions and trade missions to and from the UK); business opportunities, through the recently launched GBBC – Great British Business Club; discounts on goods and services offered by other members; industry specific discussion groups and committees; and organizes many other activities throughout the year, generating institutional and business value for all our members.
