British Chambers can help you identify and prepare for relevant overseas trade shows and for trade missions to make them as productive as possible.

When visiting an international market for the first time, being fully prepared for an intensive few days of meetings, introductions, networking and building relationships is essential. When you've researched the markets that present the biggest opportunity for your export business, British Chambers can work with you to identify the local market trade shows that will be of most benefit, and prepare fully for your involvement in any relevant trade missions.

Thorough planning and preparation ahead of an overseas visit can also include an introduction to British Chamber's in the local market, who can help ensure that your time on the ground is spent in the most valuable way and that you return to the UK having made a substantial step forward in establishing or growing your international trade. British Chambers can also advise on creating compelling promotional material and other collateral for the visit, including translation services where appropriate.

The Export Britain Directory showcases the trade missions organised by accredited Chambers across the UK. As well as organising Chamber-led missions, British Chambers work closely with UK Trade & Investment in planning and encouraging participation of trade missions to a wide range of high-growth market destinations. In addition, Export Britain values the support of a select number of partners in providing support for our trade mission programme.
