ROADMAP TO SUCCESS - It's easy when you know how

Tuesday 13th March 2018, 9.30am - 1.15pm
followed by a light lunch and networking

International markets offer huge opportunities for UK businesses. Selling internationally is very complex but – as with most things – easier with help and appropriate training.

Aimed at businesses in Newcastle and the North East who are currently working in international trade or looking to expand overseas, the Summit will examine the issues and opportunities in accessing new markets.
