Exporting boost for West Midlands

Exporting boost for West Midlands

West Midlands’ businesses could receive a boost in exporting thanks to a trio of events on international trade at the inaugural Staffordshire Business Festival next month.

Businesses in the region are being urged to sign up and explore the wealth of international opportunities available.

The Department for International Trade (DIT) West Midlands’s three free sessions will provide a range of support to local companies that want advice on getting their name out on a global platform.

The globally focused events are among the 60-plus that are being held as part of the business festival, which takes place between November 7 and 18.

Christine Hamilton, interim regional director of the Department for International Trade West Midlands, said: “We are delighted to be participating in the first Festival of Business in Staffordshire and hope that our events will be the catalyst for more companies to begin trading overseas or to be bigger and bolder with their global ambitions.

“There are already many successful exporters across the county and if we can support even more, then that would make for stronger, more stable businesses that can provide more local jobs.”

The festival is being organised by the Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce, with Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire Growth Hub and the Local Enterprise Partnership (SSLEP).

Participants will be able to pre-book one-to-one meetings with market and international trade experts, including UK export finance advisers, eCommerce experts, and intellectual property specialists.
