Exhibition To Drive Overseas Trade

Back to News

Innovative event encourages British business owners to step onto the global stage

If you’re looking to expand your business internationally, export products or set up overseas operations, then you need to visit the Going Global exhibition and conference at London Olympia on 28-29th November. The show specially caters for the latest globalisation demands that are being placed on UK businesses, with educational seminars, workshops, networking events and interactive features – all of which are absolutely free. The event is supported by leading international organisations including the top international trade bodies for the emerging ‘BRICS’ economies of Brazil, Russian, India, China and South Africa and promises to be an unmissable event for companies that are looking to go international.< /P>

Statistics from UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) show that companies which export have seen a 34% increase in productivity within the first year. They are also 11% more likely to survive. So it’s no surprise that half of the big companies who have been successful in the UK want to launch abroad. The UK Government is encouraging exportation to increase economic growth, making now a great time for Going Global.

Breaking into new international markets can be daunting for any business, which makes an exhibition like Going Global more essential and unmissable now than ever. Entire seminars are devoted to seizing the global marketplace, with leading exhibitors and showcases to explore global markets. Going Global gives your business the opportunity to raise its profile on the global stage at the same time as acquiring the latest knowledge, information and education to better export your products or set up overseas operations. It’s this combination of learning opportunities and intense networking that makes Going Global different to any other international business show.< /P>

Exclusive seminars will focus on Europe and each of the BRICS economies in turn. Each of these territory-specific seminars will address the most important issues, challenges and opportunities which face UK companies like yours that are now seeking to expand into these countries and cultures. Our series of seminars will also explore the Arabian Gulf – including the UAE - conspicuous for its rapid urban expansion, cosmopolitan cityscapes and lavish lifestyle.< /P>

Going Global attracts the world’s best business partners because the best first step towards globalising your company is to meet people who have already successfully established themselves on the world business scene. Our experts from across the globe offer you an invaluable and highly-interactive learning experience across two days that covers every aspect of establishing overseas trade. In addition, you’ll have the chance to network with thousands of people who are interested in extending their business into the international market – you may just find your ideal business partner at the show.< /P>

And the best thing is that all these seminars, workshops and networking opportunities are all under one roof and completely free! Going Global 2013 runs at the same venue on the same dates as the 30th Business Show - the UK’s biggest business exhibition - giving you even more opportunities to learn about business, find suppliers and network while you’re there. Going Global 2013 is the definitive event for any UK business looking to trade overseas. Book your tickets online now at
