Think Growth, Think Global - Focus on the Eurozone

Book your place

Around 31% of British entrepreneurs are looking to expand into international markets this year with nearly half of these looking to Europe, despite the crisis in the Eurozone, showing that there are still opportunities for British companies in this market.

In the current climate it is important for companies to understand the opportunities and risks of trading within Europe and what procedures should be put in place to limit the negative effects on your company.

Experts from UKTI, Enterprise Europe Network, Natwest and Express Language Solutions will talk you through what to be aware of, as well as giving an opportunity for you to ask questions to people in the know. Consular representatives will be in attendance giving a better understanding of their role.
