Event description

Description

Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with ExpoStars Interactive, will be running an International Exhibitions and ATA Carnets event on 23rd October. This event aims to give companies trading internationally tips and insights on how to generate more clients through international tradeshows as well as the documentation that needs to be considered to bring the goods with you.

International Exhibitions present a great opportunity for your business to expand overseas and generate more revenue, however 70% of companies do not have a proactive engagement strategy when exhibiting at international tradeshows and end up coming home with a bunch of business cards and conversations that eventually lead to nowhere and a wasted marketing budget.

ATA Carnets. also known as "Passport for Goods" is a temporary export-import document which is used to clear customs in over 85 countries and territories without paying duties for goods that will be re-exported within a specific amount of time (up to 12months). This apply to goods being taken to fairs and exhibitions overseas.

Lee Ali, Managing Director of Manchester based global exhibition engagement company, Expo Stars Interactive, will share proven processes on how to maximise your return on investment when exhibiting at tradeshows, conferences and congresses.

Kathryn Hoggitt, Export Documentation Manchester Airport Office Lead, looks after GM Chamber ATA Carnets services and has been processing documentation for over 30 years. She will provide an overview of how temporary exports work to ensure you do not have to pay duty on the goods you are bringing in, what the regulations are and how to make sure you remain compliant.
