BExA Export Seminar – 9th May 2017

BEXA-seminar-bannerBExA will be hosting an Export Seminar at One Great George Street, London SW1 on the afternoon of Tuesday, 9th May.  The event, which is free to attend, is open to BExA members and non-member SME and exporting companies.   BExA Council is grateful to Barclays Bank PLC for sponsoring the event.

As government urges businesses to make ‘2017 the year of exporting’ and to seek new markets and seize the demand for British goods and services, the BExA Export Seminar will look at some of the opportunities and challenges in doing so.  It will follow the export journey, including trade policy and support available from Government, identifying new markets and opportunities, trade finance solutions and innovation, the implications of Brexit, risks exporters should be aware of, and what happens when it all goes right!
