Frankly, this is one of the best business offers we’ve ever seen – and we’re not just saying that because it’s from one of our partners. We’ve been saying for ages you’d be mad not to consider exporting. Now for an incredibly wallet-friendly £99 + VAT, you can fly out to a new market and join other companies in a range of export-encouraging activities organised by UK Trade & Investment. These trips would usually cost £2,000!

But there is so much more potential and this week is the ideal opportunity for companies to find out more about how exporting can help their business grow.
“It’s about being prepared, investing resources in doing your research and being focused on getting results.”
