All three of South Yorkshire’s Chambers of Commerce, Sheffield, Barnsley & Rotherham, and Doncaster, are joining forces to deliver the region’s inaugural International Trade Conference.
Led by Sheffield’s International Trade Centre, as part of Sheffield Chamber of Commerce in collaboration with all Chambers, the first-ever South Yorkshire International Trade Conference will take place at the OEC Sheffield on 15th November.
Open to businesses of all sizes and sectors, from startups to established regional businesses, the conference aims to foster International Trade connections, promote trade opportunities and serve as a platform for networking and exploring the ins and outs of international trade.
“South Yorkshire is a significant hub for development prominently leading in world-class manufacturing, innovation, international trade, and global connections.”
Attendees will have the opportunity to gain invaluable insights from industry experts, speakers from the Chamber Customs team, leaders in the region, and successful businesses who have harnessed the services to access global markets available through the South Yorkshire Chambers.
Headline speakers include South Yorkshire Mayor Oliver Coppard, British Chamber of Commerce’s Director of Trade Facilitation, Liam Smyth, and Sarah Milum from the Trade Remedies Authority.
Nick Patrick, Director of the International Trade Centre, said: “South Yorkshire is a significant hub for development prominently leading in world-class manufacturing, innovation, international trade, and global connections.
“We are thrilled to see the collaboration between each of the separate South Yorkshire Chambers of Commerce to bring members this remarkable initiative. We look forward to welcoming delegates on the day and hope they discover new opportunities happening in South Yorkshire.”
With collaboration in mind, this is a ‘not-to-be-missed’ event where both seasoned importers and exporters, and those companies new to building their international trade portfolios can learn, explore opportunities and network with the best international traders in South Yorkshire.
