Vimto share export success stories with Manchester firms

A new Going Global seminar gives North West businesses the chance to hear from global brand Vimto International about how they’ve built their export market since they first sold to India, 96 years ago.

With a GDP of almost £350bn, the economy of the Northern Powerhouse is equivalent to being the 21st largest in the world.  According to UK Trade & Investment (UKTI), businesses in the North-West export £25bn of goods annually to every corner of the globe, yet there remains massive untapped potential for future international growth. 

Clive Drinkwater, North West director for UKTI says, “Manchester was the birthplace of the industrial revolution. The abundance of expertise here is in high demand around the world, yet it has so much further to go in realising its potential. Only by working together will we transform the local economy and create a more prosperous future.”

“Going Global in 2016” is the theme of the first in a series of new business events from XYZ Events, a new programme of events for creative business professionals in Manchester.

It promises to give businesses of all sizes the opportunity to find out what going global means in 2016, featuring insights and inspiration from leading experts including UKTI and Manchester-based global brands such as Vimto International. 

The event starts at 8.30am with breakfast and a welcome from XYZ Events and event sponsor, Allied London. Clive Drinkwater will open up the seminar, followed by the showcase of a UKTI Export Champion business.

Global Drinks brand Vimto International will present a big brand insight to international trade - they first exported in 1920 to India and have since developed a market in over 65 countries worldwide – followed by a panel debate, Q&A, coffee and networking.
