Bradford hosts Exporting is GREAT roadshow

The Exporting is GREAT campaign roadshow is visiting Bradford to promote the Government’s campaign to inspire 100,000 more businesses to trade overseas by 2020.

As part of a nationwide tour, the 32 tonne Exporting is GREAT campaign truck will be at Centenary Square between 10am and 4pm on Thursday, 28th January with a series of free to attend events, international trade advisors and other export experts on board.

First-time exporters are invited to attend to register their interest in ‘live’ export opportunities, access tailored support to help them trade overseas, learn about other Exporting is GREAT events and subscribe to a UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) guide to exporting.

Three of Bradford’s leading exporters will offer first-time exporters an insight into their experience of trading overseas.

The three businesses attending are:

  • Lindapter, the global market leader in the manufacture of steel clamps;
      • Bi-Fold Hardware, the manufacturer of bespoke fittings for bi-fold doors that established a successful export strategy to conquer the US market;
          • Kiravans, which designs, manufactures and sells parts for campervan conversions.
            • Mark Robson, regional director of UKTI Yorkshire and the Humber, said: “Exports are crucial to the future prosperity of this region and our country. Brand Britain is in high demand across the globe and our businesses should be making the most of these opportunities.

              “Events on the Exporting is GREAT campaign roadshow truck will allow businesses to hear how their neighbours are finding growth in international trade, learn how they can do the same and also meet like-minded businesses who can help them on their export journey.

              “Without exports your business isn’t fulfilling its growth potential. International trade isn’t difficult, it’s just different and we hope these events will help inspire more first-time and established exporters to take their first steps into new markets.”
