The British and Irish Trading Alliance (BITA) is a non-profit organisation that helps member businesses grow.

We do this by offering a variety of ways for all members to get involved, from free events to paid for advertising, from our annual awards to targeted introductions, and much more.

Although initially based in the UK and Ireland, where we have most of our chapters, we now have a presence in mainland Europe, Middle East, Australia and USA.

We run exciting networking events at prestigious venues, as well as more relaxed networking and educational events. In addition, we host social days, including golf and wine tasting.

We have active social media channels, and publish our own quarterly magazine, NetWorks. These platforms provide our members with an excellent platform to reach new clients and suppliers, as well as share news and offers with our friendly community.

We are also very proud to offer an online mentorship and ‘ask the expert’ portal, which is very helpful for our younger members, and for those looking to develop their skills or try a new opportunity.

Our procurement hub is a great way for our members to promote their services or advertise opportunities; targeted introductions, specialist offers and events, extensive HR support and online training provides ‘wrap-around’ support that businesses need.

We are the ‘people who know people that help people’ and we are keen to expand our friendly community of businesses with those that share our values of integrity, passion, and delivery, and who are inspired by our mission; “to help more people and influence further, as a collective”.
