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 very best of UK and Malaysian companies across a range of 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. With the BMCC celebrating its 60th Anniversary, this year’s Gala Dinner will be amplified to signify this important milestone of UK-Malaysian Business Excellence. This acclaimed jubilee event awaits your organisation’s participation in celebrating and reminiscing on how far the BMCC has traversed to be where it is today – a catalyst of change and continuous reciprocity among our fellow esteemed business leaders and members.
