The British Irish Chamber of Commerce and our sponsors KPMG and Ulster Bank have come together to address the various challenges and opportunities that Brexit has brought about for business interests in the UK and Ireland. This event will be the 6th instalment of the series following the Infrastructure, ICT, Financial Services, Brexit, Agri-food and SME Seminars that have taken place in the UK and Ireland.   Numerous Sporting, Cultural and Tourism organisations and agencies successfully operate on an all-Ireland basis with the most notable successes being – the Women’s Hockey team, the Ireland Rugby team and the establishment of Tourism Ireland. While respectful of the rich and diverse cultures that exist on the island of Ireland, there has been a successful trend of all-Island bodies that operate in the Culture, Arts, Sports and Tourism space.
