The Black Country Chamber says:

“The pandemic has restricted the natural format of doing business and raising profile internationally. Many of the key exhibitions had been postponed and those that did take place had reduced numbers of attendees. We are delighted that we are now entering a new phase, a return to the old ways and exhibitions are once again thriving with companies wanting to exhibit and visit and engage with potential clients and showcase their capabilities.

“Join us for an overview of a number of key exhibitions with Intec, who are hosting a British Pavilion at these shows and find out how you can be part of this and what it could mean to your company. You will also find out about ESIF funding and how you can utilise this funding to support your exhibition stand costs. This funding can also support your post exhibition activities (translations, market research etc) and your travel, even if you are not exhibiting or are visiting a country to source clients. You will also hear from our Culture and Business Adviser helping you prepare for your activities and from a company who accessed the funding and hear how it has helped develop their business internationally”.

The online event ‘Access to funding to drive international sales’ is free to both members and non-members of the Black Country Chamber – and you can sign up via the Black Country Chamber website.
