Join Made in Britain’s virtual trade missions to the USA and to China

An innovative opportunity for online sellers who seek export sales

HAVE you been on trade missions in the past? How long did they take? How much did they cost you, all in? And what did they actually deliver to you?

If you’re now doubting their value for time and money it’s probably time to take a new approach. Why not team-up with a range of uniquely qualified speakers and service providers through Made in Britain? We will be providing everything a normal trade mission normally delivers and much more!

To find out more, sign up for the FREE webinar on 11 December, which will go into all the details of what to expect. Click here to book your place on the free introductory webinar: https://www.madeinbritain.org/bookings/introduction-to-usachina-virtual-trade-mission
