Leeds to host northern export awards

Business leaders from across the North of England are set to descend upon Leeds in February for the inaugural PD Ports Northern Powerhouse Export Awards.

The glittering awards ceremony, celebrating excellence in international trade across the North of England, is being held in Leeds on 9 February 2016.

Exporting and international trade remain central to the UK’s economic growth agenda and these awards are about recognising those emerging, wealth creating companies that are selling their products and services and expertise in scores of overseas markets.

Bryan Hoare, managing director of BQ, said: "We are delighted to be bringing the inaugural PD Ports Northern Powerhouse Export Awards to Leeds next year.

"We have already received a lot of support for the campaign which shines the light on those entrepreneurial businesses helping put the Northern Powerhouse at the centre of the global stage.

"The awards are open to businesses of all shapes and sizes which have a presence in the North of England and interests overseas."
