It was a bit of Cook’s tour if you follow the pun! Over 50 experts from high growth markets across the world touring the UK signposting overseas opportunities to UK businesses. The week long Explore Export programme of events is now an important annual fixture and a key event for UK businesses keen on exporting overseas. From Barnsley to Birmingham, Bristol to the Theatre of Dreams (Old Trafford Stadium) in Manchester, the venues were busy with exports and overseas trade high on everyone’s minds. Qatar proved to be one of the most popular markets. Businesses even queued up to meet us. Over 90 businesses keen on exploring the Qatar market, and many more interested to find out more.
