Event Details

Due to the resounding success of this event taking place in Bristol earlier this year, by popular demand, we are running it again in Exeter.

B2C global e commerce sales are forecasted to reach $1.5 trillion USD by 2020 so leveraging international sales to scale your business is fast becoming an essential tool to increase revenue and profits. Selling in a digital environment where consumers know what they want, and want it quickly, creates a critical factor when getting your products to overseas markets.


This workshop has been carefully designed by an international eCommerce specialist to help you, a B2C export-ready SME, win more international business online, as well as develop your digital skills and knowledge to weave into your road map to success.


You will hear from a range of international eCommerce speakers who will offer their thought provoking insights to help create and develop your international sales strategy. You will also hear from a local business who has achieved online global success, and who is keen to share with you the tips and tricks to succeed with eCommerce cross-border trade.


Topics include:

• How to localise your web shop and deliver a great eCommerce performance          

• Building your brand online     

• Foreign exchange

• The essential guide to EU VAT & eCommerce                      


Through practical break-out sessions run by eCommerce experts, you will learn how to:

•Evaluate your e-exporting potential

•Raise brand awareness in overseas markets

•Test global waters without major investment

•Reach out to customers who would not otherwise know about your products and services

•Turn your website visits into conversions •Improve customer service by analysing online data
