🇬🇧 BBA2022・HYBRID GALA / AWARDS CEREMONY 🇬🇧

You are invited to join the BBA2022 – this year’s largest celebration of UK-Japan culture and commerce – to be held on the evening of November 2 (1800-2200JST), at The Conrad Tokyo.

Launched in 2008, the BBA gala celebrates excellence whilst showcasing success and innovation across all industries. The Awards also highlight the important social contributions made by British and Japanese organisations through their commitment to sustainability, community, and ethical behaviour as well as dealing with the challenges of 2022.

 

It’s a crystal year for the British Business Awards (BBA) gala, and we have some big surprises to mark the occasion…

Following last year’s successful delivery of our first ever hybrid British Business Awards gala (BBA2021) at The British Embassy in Tokyo, the British Chamber of Commerce in Japan (BCCJ) is delighted to announce that we are bringing the BBAs back as an in-person event, live-streamed from The Conrad Tokyo on the evening of November 2, 2022. This year marks the 15th consecutive year of BBA celebrations, so we are planning a few surprises to make it that extra bit special…

Dress code: Black tie or national dress

 

On the night of the BBA2022 gala, we welcome you to dress up, reflect, and celebrate. As previous years of the iconic black-tie gala have shown, this will be no ordinary event and one that you won’t want to miss!

The BBA 2022 will be followed by a nijikai (afterparty) at Conrad Tokyo’s Bar & Lounge “Twenty Eight”, offering an extensive selection of drinks along with a breathtaking view over the Hamarikyu Garden.
