Description

In partnership with Gloucester Growth Hub, you're invited to join us in hearing about how exporting your goods and services can boost your sales and profits. The 'How to sell overseas' presentation, delivered by local International Trade Adviser Hilary Green, will take you through a 4-step guide on how to identify the right opportunities and find international customers.

You'll also hear from local MP Richard Graham, Trade Envoy to the ASEAN Economic Community and Committee Member on Exiting the European Union, a Gloucester-based business successfully exporting overseas, and meet with our team of specialists for advice on exporting, intellectual property, digital marketing for selling overseas and export finance.

After the day's presentations, we'll be holding a mini Export Fair where you'll have the opportunity to speak to local partners about their exporting services e.g. freight forwarders, accountants and banks.
