The UK is an international centre of architectural expertise, offering an unparalleled depth and diversity of experience that is in demand worldwide. There are opportunities for UK architects of all sizes and backgrounds to win contracts and boost income in a range of international markets.
UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) is working in partnership with RIBA nationally to provide support and encouragement for UK architects looking to win overseas clients and international assignments. This seminar in Leeds is aimed at architects who would like to find out more about these opportunities and the support available both locally and overseas. This free workshop will highlight the benefits of international business and how to overcome the perceived barriers to success. It will also focus on important areas such as research, identifying key markets and protecting your IPR (Intellectual Property Rights). This interactive workshop will be delivered by local international trade advisers from UKTI experienced in helping architects develop and grow their international business.
