Chamber members offered chance to learn first hand about export trade

Andrew Mitchell, Director-General Exports and UK Trade for the Department for International Trade, is to be the guest speaker at a new event being launched by Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce.

Trading internationally, local exporters and exploring new markets are at the heart of the event, taking place on 16th November from 6.30pm until 10.30pm at The Drill in Lincoln’s Free School Lane.

The event will celebrate several export markets across the world, showcase a twist on country-specific food, as well as entertaining guests with themed music.

Simon Beardsley, Chief Executive of Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce, said: “This is a brand new event in our calendar, one we want to make an annual occasion which has been brought to life to raise awareness among Lincolnshire businesses of the world of opportunities available when trading internationally.

“In 2021 we processed over 3,000 export documentation amounting to over £160 million worth of goods and those stats alone show what huge opportunities we have here in Lincolnshire and to showcase those at this event will be fantastic.”

The event is being supported by our strategic partner and premium sponsor, LV Logistics, an international logistics provider with office and warehousing facilities in Immingham, North-East Lincolnshire.

Company Ambassador at LV Logistics, Matthew Ord, said: “As a company providing logistics globally, we know that expanding your business overseas provides huge opportunities and it is great to be part of the conversation to promote this across Lincolnshire.”

Tickets are available to book with single tickets and tables of 10 available to purchase. For more information visit the Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce website here.
