International Business Festival 2018 

About the International Business Festival 2018

The International Business Festival is the world’s biggest business Festival.


Hosted every two years in its home city of Liverpool, from 12th to 28th June, the festival captures the dynamism and diversity of the global marketplace. The goal is to give businesses the space, support and expertise they need to make connections, do deals and realise their potential.

In 2016, the festival welcomed over 25,000 attendees from across the UK and around the world, putting on a schedule of inspiring events and facilitating an estimated £250 million worth of business deals.

Held across three weeks in June 2018, the third edition of the International Business Festival will have a programme focused across nine key industry sectors – from manufacturing to health & life sciences to sustainable energy.

The Festival is driven by a belief that, at its best, business is a force for positive change – propelling economic growth, providing opportunities for development and encouraging openness and cooperation. The Festival is a celebration of this belief.

BABC Partnership with the International Business Festival

In September 2017, the global network of the British-American Business Council (BABC) announced the BABC organization will again serve as an International Delivery Partner of the International Festival of Business 2018 (IFB), making this the second annual partnership and tying together the organizations' collaborative missions to connect influencers, innovators and industry leaders from around the global marketplace.


The Pacific Northwest Chapter of British-American Business Connections (BABC-PNW), an affiliate chapter of the global BABC network, is pleased to join in supporting this global partnership.


BABC-PNW members are encouraged to join in the IFB events and/or take advantage of the many commercial opportunities that the 2018 Festival provides. Watch for upcoming announcements and information through the BABC-PNW social media channels, e-newsletters and this web page.
