As part of our commitment to build competence in British businesses, the Institute produces a series of Regional Trade Summits that bring together experts and leading authorities to speak on the key issues of the day.

These one-day events explore the increasingly complex international trade environment, looking at the many opportunities and a few challenges currently facing those working in international trade. 

The Birmingham summit will be taking place alongside the latest Open to Export Competition final sponsored by Bibby Financial Services.
