Event description

Description

The Solent LEP Business Support team are excited to invite you to the first, in a brand new programme of 'Solent Masterclasses' for Business. You will gain a wealth of information and insight from experts who support and facilitate exporting, as well as learning from the first hand experiences of SME exporters within the Solent.

If your business operates within the Solent region, and your growth plans include extending your reach beyond our shores, come along and increase your knowledge regarding the processes, regulations and support available.

Developing new markets overseas can provide huge growth potential for SME's. More than £77.5 billion worth of exports and imports are moved through the major ports of Southampton and Portsmouth every year. Research by CEBR (Centre for Economics and Business Research) highlights the Port of Southampton’s location and infrastructure as being especially beneficial to the region’s reputation as a worldwide maritime gateway.

The study found that of the total goods moved through Solent ports, £42.8 billion are exports and 85% of these are routed through Southampton to non-EU trading partners, the highest proportion of any UK port.

Export trade from the Solent maritime sector alone, including to key developed and emerging markets, generates an estimated annual contribution of at least £20 billion for the UK economy.

We look forward to welcoming you to the National Oceanography Centre in Southampton, the United Kingdom’s centre of excellence for oceanographic sciences, where you will have the opportunity to discover the amazing work being undertaken to advance knowledge and understanding about our oceans.
