The BMCC Business Excellence Awards was established in 2018 to celebrate the long-standing business relations between the UK and Malaysia by recognising and honouring the best of UK and Malaysian companies across various achievement categories. Through our momentous annual iterations, the Awards symbolise an epitome of recognition offered to companies that have excelled and progressed in the business landscape of both countries.

The annual Business Excellence Awards gala dinner is the Chamber’s largest and most prestigious event, recognised for its night of spectacular and joviality among our distinguished guests comprising C-suite executives, professionals, and government leaders. While we celebrated the momentous 60th anniversary of the BMCC last year, our gaze remains firmly fixed on the future. This year's Gala Dinner promises to be more than just a celebration; it's a dynamic springboard propelling us into a new era of UK-Malaysian business excellence.
