BNCC (British-Norwegian Chamber Of Commerce)
The British-Norwegian Chamber of Commerce is a non-profit organisation working to promote business links between Norway and the UK. The BNCC is a leading independent networking forum consisting of more than 200 active participants from large and medium size companies across a wide range of sectors. Membership is open to all professionals involved in UK-related business in Norway, and currently our main centres of activity are Oslo and Stavanger. Our mission is three-fold:
Networking through high-level events
We host regular events throughout the year, with speakers who cover topics of interest from business life in the two countries, offering opportunities to meet business leaders who are actively working in the British and Norwegian markets. Discussions and social gatherings follow the presentations, allowing ample opportunity for networking. In Oslo, the majority of our events take place in the British Ambassador’s Residence – the grand Villa Frognæs. BNCC operates in close partnership with UK Trade & Investment, who provide targeted assistance to companies relating to market entry in both countries.
Facilitating business development
The BNCC provides targeted exposure for our members’ goods and services. Beyond putting you in touch with relevant clients or customers, we can promote your business through our website and other online media channels, e-newsletters, and through displays or presentations at our events. Corporate members may engage in direct member-to-member marketing, and have the opportunity to sign up as a partner and sponsor to designated events, showcasing their unique expertise or products. We also work closely with our sister organisation in London and Aberdeen, the Norwegian-British Chamber of Commerce, providing added value for business active on both sides of the North Sea.
News and information source
Given our wide connections within the variety of UK-Norway business sectors as well as the UK Government through the British Embassy in Oslo, the BNCC is an excellent source of business news and information most relevant to our target community. Furthermore, we constantly feature success stories, service/product news and other updates from our member companies, making sure your business communication reaches a key audience without inferring any extra cost.
If you are engaged in UK-Norway markets, BNCC membership represents a key development tool for you. We offer several membership categories to suit companies of different structures and sizes – for details, please consult our website www.bncc.no
