Event description


The UK’s Department for International Trade (DIT) is proud to present a UK Trade Mission to AI Summit New York 3 – 7 December 2018.

This mission offers UK-headquartered AI companies the opportunity to showcase their expertise to the US market and meet top influencers in the New York tech ecosystem.

DIT NY is recruiting export-ready UK AI companies to join us for the AI Summit, networking events, group visits, 1:1 meetings with buyers and more. Previous missions have seen UK companies learn best practices about US expansion strategy, generate sales in the US market, and network with top-level industry executives. Ideal candidates are those who have a unique product offering for the US market and have some experience with US clients.

Testimonial from StatusToday (2017 AI Mission Delegate):
"We travelled to New York for DIT’s first delegation to AI Summit NY. We prepped well, targeting our best-fit prospects for meetings well in advance with DIT also reaching out to their buyer networks. The AI Summit offered good networking opportunities with some strong prospective clients: we saw several decision makers and key influencers from New York area enterprises, while DIT's programming informed us about New York area buyer expectations. We were able to convert new connections into meetings and we have since won business with a prominent US brand as a result."
- Ankur Modi, CEO & co-founder, StatusToday
