Businesses invited to get involved in Export Week

Businesses in Yorkshire and Humberside looking to break into overseas markets are being invited to a series of free events as part of the government's ‘Exporting is GREAT Week.’

Leading exporters from across the region will advise fellow businesses on how to start or increase international trade at events being held throughout the region from 18 to 22 April.

Organisers UKTI Yorkshire and the Humber and its partners are together staging a total of five events and two webinars during the week to open global trading doors for businesses.

Susan Waterson, deputy regional director for UKTI Yorkshire and the Humber, said: “Exporting is GREAT Week is an outstanding opportunity for businesses to learn more about international trade opportunities, and the support available to help them fulfil their exporting ambitions.

“Whether a newcomer or an existing exporter looking to expand, the Week offers something for everyone and we look forward to welcoming you.

“The countdown is on to the start of the first event on 18th April, but there’s still time to book places and join us.

“Exporting helps companies to grow, and taking those initial steps to find out more can prove invaluable.

“UKTI and our partners in Yorkshire and the Humber are determined to help local companies succeed in the global race.

“We’re already working with thousands of companies across the region to do just that – we want to help a great many more.”
