The Brazilian Chamber’s Gala Dinner & Personality of the Year Awards 2024 will take place at Drapers’ Hall, a splendid venue located in the heart of the City of London, on Tuesday, 4th June.

The Gala Dinner, a popular black-tie event, usually recognizes the achievements of business leaders who have significantly contributed to strengthening commercial relations between Brazil and the UK.

The Chamber's most important event of the year, the Gala Dinner and Personality of the Year Awards, offers an exceptional opportunity for networking with peers, business associates, and friends, while also providing a platform to connect with esteemed members of the Chamber, Board, and Advisory Board. This prestigious Gala Dinner unites leading companies that embody excellence and exert significant influence in fostering bilateral trade between Brazil and the United Kingdom.
