Connecting exporters from the Leeds City Region

International Trade Conference aims to support Yorkshire exporters during Brexit uncertainty

The Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce is joining forces with a number of organisations to host a unique International Trade Conference (ITC) in order to highlight export opportunities for the region’s businesses before and after Brexit.

Due to be held on Thursday 11 April at The John Smith’s Stadium, Huddersfield, the ITC will be run in partnership with the Department for International Trade (DIT), MY Export Hub, Kirklees Council, The University of Huddersfield and Wakefield Council.

More than 80 exporters from the Mid Yorkshire region are expected to attend the event which will provide specialist insight into the Institute of Export and International Trade, Logistics and Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) status, plus expert sessions about routes to market.

Delegates will also have to the opportunity to hear from a range of seasoned local exporters and special guests as well as learning from a session focussing on the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) export documentation.

The DIT will be assisting exporters throughout the event, offering practical advice sessions which combine all aspects of exporting, support and funding.

Martin Hathaway, managing director at Mid Yorkshire Chamber said:

“The ITC 2019 conference is a great opportunity for regional exporters who are looking to enter new markets, especially businesses looking for insights into the international trade opportunities in post-Brexit Britain and those looking to gain support, training and advice on export.”
