EXCITING export opportunities are available for Halton businesses, say experts.

A series of events are being organised by the Department for International Trade’s (DIT) You Can Export initiative, as part of its Exporting is Great campaign.

An exhibition on managing agents and distributors is being held at the Holiday Inn in Beechwood, Runcorn on June 27.

The event is designed to help firms learn about finding the right agents and distributors.

Businesses will learn about what should be included in an agreement contract, how to explore different routes to market and how to set effective targets.

The event is aimed at businesses that are looking to secure their first overseas sales, or more experienced exporters looking to develop a strategy to grow and secure contracts in new overseas markets.

Paul Stowers, head of UK regions north west, said: “The You Can Export series provides current and potential exporters with the insight to encourage international success.

"It has been designed to support businesses and highlight ways to make the exporting experience as straightforward and productive as possible.

“It gives newcomers the chance to start their exporting journey on the right foot, while more experienced businesses can pick up dozens of new suggestions, ideas and tips that will help them overcome the barriers often associated with exporting.

“If you’re thinking about starting to trade overseas or looking to further your knowledge of potential overseas partners and markets, please come along. We also have a team of dedicated international trade advisers on the ground across the north west ready to answer and support you when you need.

“Whether it’s a question about taxation in a new market or simply advice on where to start, we’ve already supported hundreds of businesses across the north west and are dedicated to continuing to help firms reap the benefits of exporting.”

DIT also has staff based in markets around the world. Alongside the regionally-based team of international trade advisers, they are ready to provide businesses with expert trade advice, market know-how and practical support for international growth.
