To Export or not to Export? International Trade Opportunities for SMEs
Thu, October 20, 2016, 5:30 PM – 8:00 PM BST
The Department for International Trade (DIT) – London Region - helps small to medium businesses (SMEs) in London export and grow into global markets. Join GetSet for Growth London and DIT, to learn more about opportunities abroad, how to make the most of them with DIT tailored advice and support, and speak with an International Business Advisor about developing your international strategy.
This session will appeal to first time exporters and those who have not engaged in international trade in the past 12 months. Emphasis will be laid on why international trade is beneficial, an overview of the export journey that companies will undertake and also highlighting some live international opportunities that are available on the day.
The outline of the workshop will in a broad sense, cover topics such as:
How doing business overseas can benefit your company,
How to make the most out of international opportunities and
What support (including funding options) is available.
Please be advised that while the workshop is free of charge, we will ask you to fill in a registration form and session feedback form. GetSet for Growth is a fully funded program set up to support East London entrepreneurs and these bits of paperwork enable us to track our progress, measure our impact and continue providing you free services. We will not give out your data to any third parties.
Registered participants based in Hackney, Islington, Newham, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest are also eligible for free of charge ongoing one to one marketing or financial support with our advisers.
