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

Wednesday 4th July 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 – easy with help and appropriate training.


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

As it is being held on Independence Day there will be a special focus on 'Doing Business in the USA' for this summit.
