“This should be a permanent fixture for all UK exporters. Whether a SME or
large multinational the forum provides deep insight on the key issues
and opportunities. Highly recommended.”

G Buck, GKB Ventures

 

With support from UK Export Finance, EEF, British Exporters Association, the International Chamber of Commerce UK and many more, this is a vital annual gathering at which all parties involved in international trade can meet and discuss their priorities for the future.

Chairman for the day is Rt. Hon. Mark Simmonds, Former Foreign & Commonwealth Office Minister, who will be joined on stage by high-level representatives from the likes of JCB, Honda Motor Europe, Brompton Bikes, Rolls Royce and Heathrow Airport, to name a few.

With discussions centred around the crucial role of trade and exports in growing the UK economy, senior figures from business and government will take to the stage in a series of addresses and debates, with audience participation and networking at the forefront of proceedings.

For UK companies looking to enter international markets, source financing to grow their exports, or gain expertise from market peers, this is a key annual gathering where the right relationships will be made.
