International Trade & Brexit Planning Event for Forth Valley

Forth Valley event to focus on International Trade & Brexit planning in challenging times

Businesses will be able to learn about selling internationally, growing their overseas markets and issues related to Brexit planning at a free event next month.

Organised by the Forth Valley International Trade Partnership, attendees will hear from a range of companies that have grown their business internationally, as well as take part in a panel with business leaders who will discuss issues relating to Brexit.

Throughout the morning, there will also be discussions about the positive impact exporting can have on Scottish SME’s and how to plan effectively for the UK leaving the European Union.

Taking place at Airth Castle Hotel on Thursday, October, 4th the Forth Valley International Trade Forum, is ideal for ambitious business owners ready to take on the challenge of developing their international reach.

The event, which runs from 8.30 a.m to 10.30 a.m, is hosted by the Forth Valley International Trade Partnership, a joint initiative between Falkirk, Stirling and Clackmannanshire Council, Business Gateway Falkirk, Business Gateway Clackmannanshire, Business Gateway Stirling and Forth Valley Chamber of Commerce. Scottish Development International are also supporters.

Alison Davidson, Business Gateway Clackmannanshire said: “Digital technologies mean it’s easier than ever for businesses to grow internationally, but expanding into these markets is still a challenge and businesses need to be fully prepared before making the leap. This event will give local business owners a real insight into the opportunities available and give them the know-how in order to sell their products and services to international customers. Afterwards, attendees will be well placed to follow up with their Business Gateway adviser to access international research support.”

A programme of events and workshops organised by the Forth Valley International Trade Partnership will also be launched on the day. This calendar of events was drawn up in response to the results of a region wide survey focusing on the issues and opportunities of international trade opportunities.
