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
