This event is fully booked.
Contact DIT East Midlands to be added to a waiting list, or to be notified of future workshops.

Are you missing out on overseas sales because you don’t know whether there 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 we are offering this free workshop to help you investigate where in the world you could be exporting to.

About the workshop:

This DIT workshop is supported by LATi and Loughborough University Science and Enterprise Park.  The interactive session 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, this workshop is not to be missed, providing 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.
•  Plan, undertake or commission, and report on a market research project.
•  Make effective use of the internet and other sources of desk research.
•  Plan and undertake market research visits to your target export markets.
•  Use market research to gain an in-depth understanding of potential customers and partners.
•  Continue to make the most of available advice and support.


Please note that DIT workshops are only available to companies from the East Midlands region, and that your place is not guaranteed until you receive confirmation from the DIT. Attendance is free and places are expected to go fast, so register your interest in attending today.
