BExA is an independent trade association which brings together the UK’s export industry and its banking, credit insurance, legal and other service providers.
Wholly membership driven, our mission is to support, represent and promote the interests of the UK exporting community.
Membership is open to all companies and other organisations resident in the United Kingdom who export goods or services, or who provide assistance to such companies in the promotion and furtherance of export activities.
Benefits of membership include:
BExA represents members interests on day-do-day and policy issues relating to UK export and trade policy and on other specific trade related issues raised by members. We meet ministers and government officials, participate in UK and EU consultations, liaise with other trade associations and obtain press coverage.
The Exporters’ Forum
Members meet, exchange views, discuss trade-related problems and update themselves on developments at periodic meetings of BExA’s Industry Committee, Banking Committee and SME & Micro Exporters Committee. These Committees report to BExA’s Council.
BExA holds an export seminar each year.
Our Annual Lunch, held in the autumn at the Mansion House, City of London, and our Spring Reception at the House of Commons are prestigious networking events in exporters’ diaries.
Members receive informative minutes of Council and other meetings, focussed e-mailings on specific topics, and a newsletter
The Association has published seven guides ‘by exporters for exporters’ on key trade issues.
