The British Business Awards (BBA) gala is happening this year – with some big changes ahead!

Following last year’s successful delivery of our first ever online British Business Awards gala (BBA2020), the British Chamber of Commerce in Japan (BCCJ) is this year going above and beyond to deliver an outstanding healthy hybrid black-tie event for BCCJ members and friends, live-streamed from a prestigious and exciting location in central Tokyo, on the evening of November 5, 2021.


You are invited to join the BBA2021 – this year’s largest celebration of UK-Japan culture and commerce – in a variety of ways.

Ahead of the big bash, you will receive options for joining BBA red-carpet action, including menus of sumptuous food and beverage offerings from great British brands. You will have the opportunity to submit suggestions for companies and people who’ve shown great vision and commitment to our community this year. And you will be dazzled by our roll-call of digi-raffle prizes donated by BCCJ members who, despite the challenges of the past year, remain generous and steadfast in their support of our chamber.

On the night of the BBA2021 gala, you will be welcome to dress-up, reflect, and celebrate. This will be no ordinary event!

More to come on this year’s BBA format, as well as announcements on this year’s judges, nomination categories, timeline, sponsorship opportunities, and surprise goodies . . .

For now, get your name on the list! You won’t want to miss this.

(Numbers of in-person attendees at the BBA2021 will be decided in October 2021, and will depend on Japan’s public health situation. Thank you very much for your understanding.)
