International Lunch focusing on the Middle East

UKTILiverpool Chamber of Commerce in partnership with UKTI will host a series of International Lunches with a specific market focus to give you an overview of the opportunities available and to address any key issues in the market.

The first of these lunches will take place at the Crowne Plaza on Wednesday 20th June at Crown Plaza, Liverpool L3 1QW, and will focus on the Middle East, which continues to offer high potential for UK companies looking to export.

UK exports to the near and Middle East accounted £11.5bn of visible exports in 2010 and trade in services surpassing this.  With Saudi Arabia envisaging an expenditure of $385bn on infrastructure projects and Qatar looking to spend $60bn on transport links, logistics facilities and hospitality in the run up to hosting the 2020 World Cup, there is no doubt that there is a wealth of opportunity available to UK companies in the area.

The event programme is as follows:

11:00 – Arrival and Registration

11:15 – First presentation by Lee Hackett, yoursalesteamcloud

11:30 – Case study – United Arab Emirates by Paul Grover, WYG

11:45 – Informal Networking
