On September 14 I am organising an export event in partnership with the Department for International Trade’s Export Hub to visit Woodford Green.
This event is aimed at local businesses to attend to find out more about exporting goods, including how to start or grow export sales.
Export Hub is a mobile outreach unit which is part of the government’s Exporting is GREAT campaign, and aims to help more British businesses explore new markets overseas.
It will feature experts in the fields of international trade and exports to provide essential information on the benefits of exporting, as well as practical advice on how to start or grow export sales, how to access live global export opportunities and how to optimise business for selling online.
The event will be attended by experts and market representatives will be able to promote the export opportunities available in their country and give specific advice.
Businesses will also be able to discover more about the range of support available from the Department for International Trade.
Demand for British goods abroad is booming. In the year to March 2018, exports from London alone totalled £36.6 billion, an increase of 8.1pc on the previous twelve months. London is now home to more than 17,700 exporters, with an average value of £537,000 per exporter.
If you are a local business in Chingford & Woodford Green and would like to attend the event, please call 020 7234 3000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
