business Research

Looking to do business in Portugal – or perhaps you are a Portuguese company seeking accurate information on doing business in the UK?

The Chamber has collated several high quality and accurate reports from our members and a wide range of external sources, about doing business in the UK and Portugal – and to make it easier we have filed them under the relevant business headings.

In addition, the Chamber offers its own in-house research services.  For an agreed fee, this allows members to analyse key business sectors in the UK market before taking strategic decisions. Examples of research projects already conducted by the Chamber include:

The student housing market – operators in the UK interested in joint ventures in Portugal (commissioned by a commercial/residential real estate developer in Portugal)

Decision makers in the mid-market hotel sector in the UK – who specify the restoration and refurbishment of hotels (commissioned by a construction/hotel design group in Portugal)

Key buyers and investors in the UK lingerie market (commissioned by a Portugal-based lingerie brand keen to expand sales in the UK market)

Services offered include desk and phone research, mystery shopping, and appointment making with key decision makers. For further information contact Christina Hippisley on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

What is It?

What is it?

The Portuguese Chamber Business Network (PCBN) was created by the Portuguese Chamber of Commerce in 2011 to introduce the next generation of Portugal's business leaders to the work of the Chamber and to engage them with our events programme.

With over 1000 members, many of whom are Portuguese-born business people working at a senior level in the UK's leading companies, the PCBN is a leading international business network.


Who runs it?

The PCBN is administrated by Chamber staff and is directed by a Portuguese-born, UK-based committee chosen for their wide range of contacts and their interest in the Chamber. Applications to join the Committee are welcome.


Recent Events

Three or four events are held every year and offer valuable sponsorship opportunities. Recent sponsors include Banco Espírito Santo, Caixa Geral de Depósitos, the Pestana Group and Withers Worldwide. Attendance at events is free but they are for PCBN members only.


Feedback from Guest and Members

"Thank you very much for the invite to the Portuguese Business Network event, it was very well organised and I had the opportunity to meet very interesting people".

Clemencia Corradine, Client Relationship Manager, London & Capital
