Exhibitions are a very popular way to market products and services. They provide an invaluable chance to target both potential customers and like-minded businesses. However, they often involve considerable marketing investment by participating companies, especially when attending an exhibition abroad. It is therefore crucial that companies wishing to take advantage of the opportunities offered by international exhibitions know how to maximise their investment.

At this event, organised by Enterprise Europe Network at London Chamber of Commerce and Industry, we will guide you through the necessary steps that your company must consider to achieve the best results from participating in a trade fair abroad. Experts will share their knowledge on the different aspects related to attending international exhibitions. The information will range from how to select the right fair for your company to how to take part in fairs' brokerage events, finance and more. If your company already exhibits at trade shows or you have no previous experience of exhibiting but are interested in doing so, this is the right event to attend.
