Events & Clubs

The French Chamber organises over 50 Events & Clubs per year, welcoming more than 2,000 participants, and providing a mix of networking, learning, and influencing opportunities.

Our 2024 programme is built around our members’ concerns and their insight from the 2023 membership survey. Key themes will include people and talent, the business impact of emerging technologies, and sustainability.

2024 marks 120 years since the signing of the Entente Cordiale and this milestone in cross-Channel relations will also form an important pillar in our event programming. Members can expect regular events on the evolving UK-France relationship.

Members value both networking events with opportunities to make new connections and meet new leads, and to learn from peers, share best practice, and have access to key stakeholders and experts on critical business topics. We’re responding in 2024 with a mix of pure networking events, Clubs, webinars, check-ins with key stakeholders, and a new UK-France Conference.

This year we are committed to increasing the number of free networking events open to all members. These will include the Spring Parliamentary Reception, and quarterly breakfast briefings from experts around our key themes.

Our events programme is updated regularly so please check out upcoming events.
