Council Supports Businesses Looking To Potentially Export

In the latest of its series of funded business workshops to support local SMEs, Craven District Council has enlisted the Department for International Trade (DIT) and other experts to encourage business owners to take their first steps in exploring markets outside the UK.

The Growing Your Global Business event takes place at The Coniston Hotel on Thursday 9th February from 9am – 12 and provides an opportunity for local business owners who are considering or venturing into export to interact with the panel and have one-to-one meetings with the speakers for advice tailored to their respective businesses.

Representatives from UK Export Finance, Chamber International, Resolve and the York & North Yorkshire Local Enterprise Partnership will be among the experts alongside the DIT. Presentations will include a case study from SkillsForge, an update on the Export Academy and information about the new International Trade Qualification.

The event is intended to benefit business owners with companies operating in any market sector and will be productive whether they are completely new to export or looking to expand their existing export activity further afield with valuable new insights from the event.

Craven District Council is delivering this event in partnership with the experts as part of the Langcliffe Quarry Enterprise Centre project, using funds from the European Regional Development Fund.
