Event description

Description

President Donald Trump has promised that the UK is firmly at the top of the queue for a special trading relationship with the United States.
With a GDP of $17.5 trillion and 320 million sophisticated consumers, the United States is the number one exporting destination outside the EU for Lancashire businesses. This is your ticket to take advantage of this special relationship. Come and learn how you can get ahead of the competition with our exciting line up of expert speakers offering their inside knowledge into not just how best to gain market access but also how to effectively exploit one of the most exciting but challenging global markets. Our experts will be on hand for informal discussions afterwards and you are invited to visit our comprehensive range of exhibitors in addition to networking and sharing best practice with leading Lancashire businesses. Because of this meeting you should in the words of the President be better equipped to put “America first”.
