Tim Hutchings, Chief Executive of Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce said: “Business growth through exports is crucial for British firms. Many companies would like to export, but are unaware of the tools available to them to get them started or help them increase orders. The Exporting is Good for Britain conference is a fantastic opportunity for business people across the UK to celebrate the vital role the private sector plays in driving growth in the UK, and learn from business experts who have successfully grown global brands through exporting.”  

David Riches, Commercial Director at the British Chambers of Commerce, said:The BCC is committed to helping businesses thrive and grow in an uncertain environment, both here in the UK and overseas. There are thousands of companies that have through sheer hard work grown and exported their products and services across the globe – and this event will give people the opportunity to hear exactly how they have done it. Attendees will also have the chance to meet representatives from both UK and international Chambers of Commerce and other trade organisations, to make connections and share experiences in the pursuit of export success.”
