News: Export experts at Rotherham event


Rotherham businesses are being given the chance to find out more about the opportunities to win new overseas business at an interactive workshop next month. .

Organised by Rotherham Investment & Development Office (RiDO) in conjunction with UK Trade & Investment (UKTI), the event is free for Rotherham-based companies and will take place at RiDO's Fusion @ Magna business centre at Templeborough on November 13. The theme will be "winning new overseas business through market research and customer service."

The event is part of RiDO's ERDF-funded Growth and Prosperity in Rotherham – Soft Landing Zone project which offers support to Rotherham companies with accessing international markets and helping foreign inward investors who choose to locate to its business centres. UKTI is the Government's trade body that works with UK based businesses to ensure their success in international markets through exports.

The workshop will be led by Simon Bedford, an expert advisor from UK Trade & Investment, who will provide information on how Rotherham businesses can identify and explore opportunities in international markets, with the aim of achieving international growth. He will look at where, when and how to access new markets, the importance of being customer-focused and he will also reveal some interesting global findings on customer service.

Nathan Woodcock, business development co-ordinator at RiDO will also speak about what advice and support is available in Rotherham to help businesses to increase their export sales. This includes free access to market research that RiDO’s experienced team can carry out for Rotherham companies to assist them in identifying and exploring new overseas markets.

Nathan said: "This is a great opportunity for local businesses who are thinking of exporting, or who have already started to trade internationally, to learn from experts at UKTI and network with other businesses who are doing so. Any Rotherham business that is looking for help with international market research through RiDO's Soft Landing Zone should register now as this opportunity will be coming to an end in the next few months."

Rotherham businesses can also benefit from RiDO's free Export Communication Review (ECR). This is designed to help local businesses to develop trading relations with both English and non-English speaking export markets by reviewing a company's literature, branding and website.
