International Trade Dinner – East Midlands

Helping manufacturing companies overcome exporting hurdles and take advantage of international trade opportunities

The exporting landscape is changing for UK manufacturers. From uncertainty of Brexit to the impact of the devaluation of sterling, industry is keen to understand how they can secure their supply chain and improve their international presence.
