Event description

Description

This event is being organised exclusively for companies in the North East that are interested in exporting their product or service to the USA.

Over the last few years, the North East of England and North East USA have developed a close working relationship, in the spirit of developing 2-way trade and investment. This has led to 3 successful trade missions from the North East to Boston and we are now delighted to announce an inward visit by the British American Business Council of New England (BABCNE) and a representative of the City of Boston Government to our region this September.

You are invited to join us for a FREE event at Lumley Castle Hotel on Thursday, 21st September at 11.00 (arrival from 10.45) to meet the BABCNE group and hear market presentations on the opportunities in North East USA and how the City of Boston and wider New England area could be your gateway to the lucrative US market. We are also delighted to confirm that we will be joined by Harriet Cross, Her Majesty’s Consul General for New England, who will share with us her insights. This is a must-attend event for any companies interested in developing trade for their products and services in the USA. Places are strictly limited, so we recommend that you book early. A light lunch will be provided and there will be an opportunity to network with our visitors and other delegates after the presentations. The full programme is:
