Exporting advice for West Midlands businesses

Exporting advice for West Midlands businesses

West Midlands businesses looking to export for the first time could benefit from a free support service launched by UK Trade & Investment (UKTI).

The Export Essentials masterclasses have been designed to help companies develop their export strategy and to understand the fundamental principles of international trade.

A total of 12 all day masterclasses have been organised across the region allowing potential exporters to work with UKTI advisers and gain advice on the planning process, and cover areas such as market research, market selection, routes to market, communication and intellectual property protection.

Christine Hamilton, interim director of UKTI West Midlands, said: “This new masterclass is ideal for any business that hasn’t yet started to export but wants to explore the possibilities of taking their goods and services overseas.

“We offer a range of support to companies across the West Midlands region, from micro businesses to large organisations, and have the expertise to help with every step of the process, so I would urge anyone thinking of following their dreams of exporting to take advantage of the free masterclass.”

The Exports Essentials workshop locations include Birmingham, Coventry, Stoke on Trent and West Bromwich.
