Aimed at businesses in the Midlands who are currently working in international trade or looking to expand overseas, the Summit will examine the issues and opportunities in accessing new markets.
In an ever changing business environment, the Institute is working in partnership with Barclays to raise the skills of those involved in international trade by exploring some of the opportunities that are available to businesses in the Midlands. Following the Brexit vote, the event will focus on ‘Where next?’ and will define the routes to new markets and relevant technological advances to improve and enhance trading relationships.
