Local businesses are being invited to attend the next Worcestershire Innovation Wednesday International Trade Opportunities at 5pm on 19 August, with nearly 200 businesses having already registered.
This session at 5pm – 8:30pm, 19 August at QinetiQ will include help and guidance from UK Trade and Investment including how to take those important first steps with exporting and exploring international markets.
‘Worcestershire Innovation Wednesdays’, which are held each month to showcase innovation across Worcestershire, present new developments and opportunities as well as provide an opportunity for like-minded business people to network. The sessions provide a space for businesses and experts to come together to share ideas and thoughts about innovation and creativity with guest speakers providing specialist insight.
The concept, which is already proving popular, was initiated by QinetiQ, the experts in defence, aerospace and security, the Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership, Herefordshire and Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce and Worcestershire County Council.
Places are limited and businesses are being encouraged to register at the earliest opportunity for the next three sessions, each of which have a different focus:
- International Trade Opportunities: 5:00 pm – 8:30 pm on August 19, 2015 at QinetiQ, Malvern
