Passport to Export for E-commerce Workshop (Reading) 25/11/14
Event on 2014-11-25 08:30:00
Full day workshop, 9am-5.30pm
This workshop is your opportunity to focus on developing your online export strategy both in terms of what you want to achieve and how you go about it. Working alongside other e-commerce businesses you will be encouraged to develop a focused and strategic approach to selling your goods and services via online channels to overseas markets.
You will have the opportunity to address issues related to your business including online market selection, most suitable routes to market (website, e-commerce, e-marketplaces, online stockists, online wholesalers). You will take stock of where you are now, where you want to get to and the hurdles you need to address to get there, such as barriers to entry, customer support, logistics and fulfillment, regulations, tariffs and taxes.
This interactive workshop is an integral part of the Passport to Export programme and you can expect to come away with new skills and a list of achievable actions that will help you execute the export action plan that you agree with your International Trade Adviser (ITA). The workshop is designed to give you plenty of space to think things through and get your questions answered to take your online business forward with the support of your ITA and the wider UKTI global network and suite of services for e-commerce exporters.
In the two weeks following the workshop you will have the opportunity for a further meeting with your ITA to review your progress and agree actions.
This workshop is only open to companies who are based in the South East region and who participate in the Passport to Export programme. Please contact your local International Trade Team to find out more about all of UKTI's services, and their suitability for your business. A list of our regional offices and telephone numbers can be found on our contacts page.
