By 2020, more than 900 million people worldwide are expected to be international online shoppers, with their purchases accounting for almost 30% of all global B2C transactions.
UKTI will be hosting a Digital Solutions Day in Leeds to offer advice and support to small businesses about making overseas sales online.
Featured speakers will include senior representatives of e-marketplace firms such as Wn Direct, Lengow, Channel Advisor and digital trade advisors from UKTI itself.
Topics to be addressed include managing e-marketplaces worldwide such as Amazon, eBay, Allegro, LaRedoute, PriceMinister, NewEgg, Trade Me and Cdiscounts, managing logistics, returns and fulfilment, UKTI’s e-exporting programme and international cross-border VAT.
Mark Robson, UKTI regional director for Yorkshire and the Humber, said: “e-commerce both at home and overseas is increasing exponentially both in Yorkshire and the Humber and indeed elsewhere in the UK and this event will give both established and first-time e-exporters the chance to share in the sector-leading knowledge and expertise of those who trade successfully online in markets abroad.”
The event will take place on Tuesday, 15th March at Royal Armouries from 9am.
