Ever since the first plane took off from Heathrow in 1929, businesses in Hounslow have been boosting their coffers by trading in overseas markets. To this day the tradition continues but there will always be companies less inclined to look beyond these shores and others who already export but maybe unsure of how to break into territories. That’s where UKTI (UK Trade and Investment) and Export Week comes into its own.
Between the 9th and 13th November an action packed week of targeted (and often free) support including webinars, summits, briefings and masterclasses will be available to provide businesses with the practical advice needed to do business overseas.
Research has shown that ‘on average, companies earn £100K in additional sales within 18 months of working with UKTI’. During Export Week your company can take its first steps to becoming yet another business proudly flying the Houslow flag overseas.
An opportunity not to be missed for small and medium sized Hounslow businesses is the arrival of UKTI’s Export Hub truck on the 10th November at the Heathrow Summit taking place at the Park Inn by Radisson on Bath Road (UB7 0DU). The Export Hub truck will be travelling the UK for 12 months offering inspiration and guidance to help companies start exporting. Free of charge 1-2-1 advice will be available on how to tap into e-marketplaces across the world and find out how to use online sales to boost your business.
