Our Meet the Expert event will be returning for the third time on Friday 17th May 2019. Next year aims to be even bigger, gathering over 70 delegates.

In 2018, we welcomed more than 26 experts from around the world, who represented a range of markets and areas of expertise within international trade. This included insights on how to start doing business in these countries or to support companies with more technical areas such as e-commerce, logistics and protecting your intellectual property.

Over 30 companies attended the event with over 60% of businesses from the Manufacturing and Engineering sector. 191 meetings took place across the day!

In 2019, we expect to see even more attendees!

This event provides a great opportunity to raise your profile among companies from the North West doing business internationally and looking to expand even more. We also have sponsorship and exhibition spaces available. Packages start at £600+VAT and you can email for more information.

What is the Meet the Expert event?

This event is a day of 20-minute-long 1-2-1 meetings between companies and experts. The aim is to provide companies with the support they need to grow their business internationally by providing the opportunity to meet with a wide range of experts in one day. The event showcases the range of international trade support available for UK businesses and helps companies to understand the complexity of doing business overseas.
