How to succeed in Australia: Q&A with Made in Britain exporters

Made in Britain invites any UK company to hear from and connect with: 

  • Two UK manufacturing companies – successfully exporting to Australia, including Mar-Key
  • Australian British Chamber of Commerce – dialling in from Sydney - offering support, advice and networks for UK companies doing business in and with Australia

This 60-minute online session takes place as the UK marks one year since the Free Trade Agreements with Australia and New Zealand came into force. Also, in response to the interest in exporting to Australia, identified via Made in Britain’s 2023 exports survey.

Made in Britain recognises the value of businesses talking with their peers, and this session will facilitate that for UK exporters wanting to hear real, practical examples, direct from the exporters themselves.  Whether it's an exporter venturing into Australia for the first time, or one with extensive experience in the market. 

As ever, Made in Britain aims to leave plenty of time for Q&A, so attendees can ask the exporters, Chamber of Commerce and Made in Britain questions specific to their own interests.

The session will be opened by Made in Britain’s CEO, John Pearce, and facilitated by its Advisor, George Middleton.  This is the latest in Made in Britain’s ongoing programme of export activity.
If there are any specific questions or discussion points that you would find helpful for the session to cover, or for more details, please email Made in Britain in advance via:

Who is this session designed for? 

The session is open to any UK company with an interest in exporting to Australia, be it active and large, small scale, or still in the pipeline.  As a Made in Britain session, it will however be particularly valuable for UK manufacturing companies.
Date & time
Tuesday 9th July, 11.00 - Midday
