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

"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
"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. "
""BHBPA is a really well organised and run group, great for networking and benefitting from knowledgeable local speakers with real business insight. Peter brings enthusiasm and humour which helps drive the association forward. I am glad to be part of it.""
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
