The UK is a most important export market for Ireland, and Ireland is also a key market for British exporters, yet many companies fail to capitalise on the advantages such a close trading partner offers.  During this half-day seminar, a panel of eminent speakers will  provide a comprehensive overview of the benefits and ease of doing business in Britain, through exporting and/or establishing a physical presence there.

This interactive and practical morning seminar offers an insight into the practicalities, opportunities and challenges of doing business in Britain and an opportunity to meet one to one with the speakers.

One-to-one clinics with advisors from Enterprise Ireland, UK Trade & Investment, Grant Thornton, Bank of Ireland and the British Irish Chamber of Commerce will be available following the seminar. Please indicate your interest in attending these clinics when registering for this event.

Who should attend: Business Owners, Managing Directors, Chief Financial Officers
