News: Selling Overseas?

Posted on 18th January 2017

CALLING ALL COMPANIES THINKING ABOUT SELLING OVERSEAS

 

The Department for International Trade team in the South East are launching a range of exciting activities to help you take your first steps in selling overseas.

 

On the 26th January we are running a workshop in Brighton called the Online Export Accelerator, which will be a great opportunity to learn how to start selling your products or services online. If you are interested in attending this, please click on this link

Then on the 2nd February there will be a half day workshop on Creating Your Own Individual Plan to Start Exporting, to be held in the Burgess Hill area.  Places for this are limited and will be offered to suitable companies at the right stage of their export journey.

 

We recently set up a Food and Drink Exporters Group for companies to share experience and knowledge, and have just launched a similar one for Retail and Consumer Goods. The Retail and Consumer Goods Exporters Group will be having a meeting in Brighton on the 1st February and the next Food and Drink Exporters Group meeting is also in Brighton on the 22nd February.

 

And finally we also have several opportunities coming up in March to take your goods into Europe – a food fair in the Netherlands, a health and well-being fair in Flanders and a pop-up show in Cologne.

 

If any of these are of interest, please contact Carolyn Bentley, from the Department of International Trade

Testimonials

"“I have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.

It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"

Susan Fleet, Managing Director
(Lea Graham Associates)

"Regular, well organised events, excellent updates and information by email along with a warm welcome from the Chair and Coordinator are just some of the positives at BHBPA."

Mike Oliver, Owner
(Mike Oliver Associates)

"The BHBPA is a fantastic hub for our business community to get together and catch up, discuss important local issues and connect new and interesting enterprises."

Oliver Lashley , Director
(Pure Storm Digital Services )

"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
