The South West welcomes the Export Forum Breakfasts in February and March as the perfect environment to prepare your local businesses for the EU Exit and ensure that they are in the best position to take advantage of future international sales opportunities.

Over the course of two weeks the breakfasts will be held in six locations; Bath, Gloucester, Somerset, Cornwall, Poole and Wiltshire each has been specifically designed to help kick start South West business’ 2019 trade preparations.

Each morning session will host a guest speaker who has successfully grown multi-million-pound export businesses and are ready to pass on their best bits of advice. Speaker announcement coming soon. Our Head of Policy, Matt Griffith, will also be there on the day to answer any questions you may have about the UK’s exit from the EU and the impact it may have on local businesses.

Following the keynote, there will be interactive roundtable sessions, hosted by a trade expert on the following topics:
