About the event

This event is designed to highlight the opportunities available for North East businesses at Expo 2020 Dubai.

The largest World Expo, lasting 6 months is expected to bring together many of the world’s largest companies. As the first World Expo in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia, Expo 2020 Dubai will give participants an unrivalled opportunity to access a region of more than 3.2 billion people, with a collective GDP of more than $6.5 trillion.

The UAE’s role as a leading international business hub will bring businesses closer to the world’s fastest emerging markets with Africa’s booming commercial sector, India’s growing consumer class, and China’s established industries and New Silk Road all within easy reach. This is a great opportunity to find out how to foster international relationships and create new business opportunities.

Hear from the experts on the 11th December at North East BIC, Sunderland and find out how you can capitalise on these opportunities. 

Please note this event is only open to registered businesses based in North East England interested in trading internationally or wanting to learn more about the service Department for International Trade North East provides. You may be contacted prior to the event to assess eligibility.
