Are you missing out on overseas sales because you don't know whether these is a demand for what you have to offer? Or perhaps you just don't know where in the world to start? This invaluable workshop will give you all the information you need to understand the potential for your company overseas.

Of the 2.5 million businesses registered in the UK, an estimated 360,000 who have an exportable product or service mistakenly believe there isn’t a global demand for it. That’s why the Department for International Trade, in partnership with Derbyshire Economic Partnership and South Derbyshire District Council, are offering this free half-day workshop to help you investigate where in the world you could be exporting to.

About the workshop:

Exclusively available to companies based in the Derbyshire region, this interactive workshop will provide an excellent introduction to researching overseas markets, including how to identify the most appropriate territories via market selection and advice on how to conduct desk based and face to face research. Delivered by a market research specialist, you’ll be provided with all the information you need to ensure you make the right decisions on where to target your overseas strategy.

By attending, you'll be able to:

• Understand the key criteria for selecting and prioritising overseas markets.

• Make effective use of the internet and other sources of desk research.
