Lancashire International Trade Conference

Developing international trade in the post-EU Exit environment

Lancashire’s international traders are flying the flag across the globe as they continue to open valuable new markets to exploit. But their efforts are not without challenges.

In an EU Exit environment, finding new parts of the world to sell Lancashire’s quality goods and services will be increasingly important.

Our insight event will look at the settling environment for international trade and discuss the change of rules and issues since exiting the EU. We will hear from Lancashire’s international trade support organisations, who will share the help available to navigate the waters.

We will also consider new opportunities available to exporters and how to secure them.

And, of course, we will be speaking to exporters. Their real-life experiences will be shared – the challenges and the rewards.

This event is designed for:

  • Businesses considering exporting for the first time
  • Exporting businesses looking to reach new markets
  • Professionals who advise clients on international trade

Lancashire Business View will report from the event and use the insight to produce its International Trade Report in an extended feature in the May/June edition of the magazine. It will also be shared through our online, social and video channels.

We will open the Lancashire International Trade Conference with an interview with Lynne Gillen, export manager at the Department of International Trade.

Discussion: The international trade supporters

We’ll gather together those organisations set up to support businesses in international trade. What support is available and how do businesses access it? How will they meet the challenges surrounding the new rules brought on by EU Exit? And how can more Lancashire businesses gain access to international markets?

The panellists:
 
Miranda Barker, chief executive of East Lancashire Chamber of CommerceOnelia Angelosanto, global trade associate partner at EY
Paul Walters, head of international trade at the North and Western Lancashire Chamber of CommerceJohn Lucy, head of international transport at Road Haulage Association
 
Professor Philip Leigh, innovation and growth specialist at RTC North 

Discussion: The international traders

We’ll have key representatives from a range of businesses across Lancashire. We’ll get under the skin of their challenges and hear tips and advice on how to export successfully. And we’ll ask them about their new challenges and opportunities.

Other guests and elements to the event will be announced.

John Carr, owner of Cheese MattersDavid Lenehan, managing director of Northern Industrial
Nick Dykins, managing director of SlingcoPaul May, director of sales and marketing at Universal Smart Cards
