International Trade Advisers will deliver the session and there will be opportunities to hear from companies who sell a variety of product and services overseas. This seminar aims to help businesses decide on whether or not exporting is right for them and to showcase the support on offer and attendance is free.
Companies looking to attend next week’s seminar will have to evidence that they are a small to medium enterprise by filling in several forms before the event. However, businesses who have already completed these forms at previous Growth Hub events will not have to fill in a new set.
