Coronavirus Update - Event Postponed

It is with regret that the Arab British Chamber of Commerce must inform you that our Arab British Economic Summit & Expo (ABES 2020: It’s Working Together) due to be held on 1st July has been postponed. This decision to postpone ABES 2020 has of course been taken in view of the exceptional circumstances of the Coronavirus pandemic and in line with UK Government advice.

Our priority is always to ensure that our members, colleagues, staff and friends remain safe and this especially important during this most challenging period in human history. Our planning for the Summit was well advanced and we are determined to hold the event as soon as normal trading conditions are resumed. Our Chamber remains open for business and dedicated to providing the essential services to our members and clients within the business community.

We look forward to cooperating with you and hope to welcome you to one of the events we will be hosting as soon as normal operating circumstances are resumed.
