16 August –
UKTI representatives will be at Innovation Birmingham to share their knowledge and expertise on export opportunities for all companies who have a product or service and are interested in export as a route to growth.
The workshop will include a welcome and introduction to export by Ann Cook and the chance to hear from local companies who have already benefited from our help and advice and are now exporting successfully.
Sarah Lumley-Holmes, one of the regions Digital Trade Advisers will also talk through how to optimise your web presence, including social media for international trade and how to utilise social commerce and digital trends.
Whatever your size or sector the rewards from selling your products and services overseas can be huge. Trading abroad can boost your profile, credibility and bottom line. International markets offer you access to new customers, revenue and ideas. And research confirms that exporting companies are more productive, innovative and resilient to economic downturns than non-exporters. You’re already competing successfully with the international companies here at home. So why not take that final leap to market overseas?
