Poole Maritime Festival - Business Growth Day
Wed 17 May 2017, 14:00 – 18:00 BST
POOLE MARITIME FESTIVAL presents a Business Growth Day 17 May 2017
Business Growth Day (BGD) is an integral part of Poole Maritime Festival including European Maritime Day, the annual meeting point for Europe’s maritime community to network, discuss and forge joint action.
Dorset and the South West benefits from leading world class marine businesses and strong and diverse supply chains. BGD is a free event for marine businesses providing support and guidance for those looking to export for the first time, for those seeking to increase their exporting offer and for those who just want to grow their domestic business. The day includes information and guidance around access to finance, innovation vouchers, tax credits, supply chain management and general business support through presentations and interactive workshops. Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
The day will conclude with a networking reception in the form of a guided boat tour of Poole Harbour where complimentary canapes and sparkling wine will be served. Joining us for this cruise will be a number of Dorset’s leading marine businesses, some of the County’s best known foreign owned businesses and 15 marine-sector specialists from countries across the Enterprise Europe Network. This represents a tremendous opportunity to find out about the market for your product or service in their particular country and your prospects for success. A free coach will transfer delegates to the networking cruise and the boat will arrive back into Poole Quay at 8.00pm. There is strictly limited availability for the reception, so please do book early to avoid disappointment!
BGD is proudly delivered in partnership through Borough of Poole, Department for International Trade and British Marine with support from the Dorset Growth Hub and UK Export Finance.
This is a unique opportunity for people to take away an image of a coastal town and port that has a thriving, innovative and high tech business offer along with attractive investment streams.
On the day you will have the opportunity to meet the experts and find out what support is available to your business.
