Join the Department for International Trade (DIT) North East for a FREE one-hour virtual masterclass, covering how to find the next international market for your business. 

By identifying and prioritising high growth overseas markets, exporters of products and services can develop a more effective international strategy. During this interactive webinar we will look at the countries that exporters have traditionally targeted and focus on the new exciting market opportunities for future development. 

We will discuss and answer these key questions:

  • Where are the best future opportunities?
  • Which key markets should you prioritise?
  • When should you target selected markets?
  • Why is it important to develop an export strategy?
  • How should you approach specific markets and regions?
  • What support and advice is available?

After this workshop you will be able to:

  • Identify new and exciting overseas export markets
  • Decide which international markets you should prioritise
  • Agree the timing for targeting your chosen markets
  • Understand the different options for countries and regions
  • Choose the support to successfully develop future export markets.

This masterclass is a great opportunity to explore how to identify which market offers the best opportunities for your business!
