Trade Mission opportunities for business

June 22, 2015

A visit to an overseas market is an exciting opportunity to build contacts and experience a new business culture, but it comes at the expense of time and money.
A UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) group mission offers a way to minimise the learning curve and increase the impact of your journey exponentially.
UKTI trade missions are high profile, with media coverage which will boost UK companies seeking international business meetings. Networking receptions held at British Embassies and Consulates also offer the chance to meet pre-qualified contacts, saving valuable time. An experienced host will support your efforts before, during and after the trip, offer funding to SMEs where eligible, and a network of like-minded local companies to share the journey may prove useful contacts back at home.
Upcoming missions:
Singapore and Malaysia (25 July – 5 August) – this Northern Powerhouse mission will include receptions and events organised by the British High Commission. Southeast Asia is a vibrant, fast- growing region with Singapore and Malaysia strategically important global business hubs.
Turkey (11-16 October) – increasing use of English for business and strong economic growth make Turkey a lucrative market. Book 1:1s with targeted prospects and join a networking reception at the British Consulate.
Japan – Tokyo International Industry Exhibition (18-20 November) – benefits include interpreters at the exhibition, a networking reception with other exhibitors and a 1:1 meeting arrangement service.
Baltics (23-25 November) – for just £200 all inclusive, novice exporters can experience a taste of a new market and what support UKTI offers on a mission to Latvia. Key sectors for winning business on this special programme are cyber and food & drink.
