Export Week

Export Week


Various locations across the South West.

Export Week is a week of high-profile events in every corner of the UK promoting exporting to businesses. A series of seminars and events will be held to offer unique and informed advice on how to go about doing business almost anywhere in the world, especially the fast-growing markets of Asia, the Far East and Eastern Europe that are the defining characteristic of business in the 21st century.

The global economic centre of gravity has shifted towards high-growth markets such as Brazil, Russia, India and China, and others such as Colombia, Indonesia, and Qatar. Increasing numbers of UK companies are prospering by exporting to these markets. With so many millions of potential new customers, low-cost communications, and improving infrastructure many more, smaller UK companies are amongst those making journeys to Rio or Riyadh, Moscow or Mexico City - and sealing deals for what they have to offer.

The time to act is now.

At UK Trade & Investment we know that expansion into overseas markets can be easier said than done. We manage a range of support for exporters, whether first-time or experienced, large or small, to ensure lasting success overseas and at home.

We also know that one of the biggest investments any company can make is in their time, and we hope that the expertise and advice we’re making available to business across the UK throughout Export Week can help put UK businesses on a fast track to success.

UKTI regional director Russell Jones said: “It has been great to see so many of the region’s companies, large and small, taking up the international trade challenge and benefitting from the support available. There is an unbelievable appetite for British products and services overseas and there has never been a more opportune time to take advantage of these commercial prospects.

“I strongly believe that most companies can and should export – from single-owner operations to large corporations. If you are successful in the UK, there is no reason why you can’t sell abroad, if you do your research and plan properly. “Exporting is crucial to the growth of our regional economy. Once you start exporting, there’s no limit to where you can go and the profit you can make. Whether you’re new to exporting or experienced in trading internationally, these events are not to be missed.”
