International Business Week 2017 is set over seven days of exciting and engaging events for local and international business enthusiasts

Since its inception in 2009, the International Business Week event has been reported as a resounding success in each of the subsequent years it has been staged.

This celebration of Barbados international business, which will take place this year from October 15 – 21, comprises a series of exciting events achieved through strong collaboration between BIBA and a number of strategic partners.

These events demonstrate thought leadership, corporate social responsibility, and tangible means by which everyday Barbadians can embrace and appreciate the important role that international business plays in every facet of this island’s development.

We invite you to join us this year as we stage yet another exciting week of activities.
