YOU CAN: Do Business in the U.S.

Date: Thursday, 24th October 2019
Time: 9:00 am - 3:30 pm
Venue: The Granta Centre, Granta Park, Cambridge, CB21 6GP

About the Event:

You Can: Do Business in the U.S. aims to explore the key questions companies regularly ask us when looking to develop new business and expand operations in the U.S. 

Market Facts:

With each state of the U.S. having a GDP equivalent to some major European economies, any approach to ensuring successful business in the U.S. needs to be carefully targeted. The U.S. is the East of England’s biggest export market worth £3.5bn annually and this growing export market provides a wealth of business opportunities for UK companies. Now is a good time to explore the U.S. market.

Nature of the Day:

The aim of this conference is to explore, with live case studies from a high profile DIT Export Champion, Contamac, the challenges of expanding into the U.S. The day will involve a combination of plenary sessions and parallel breakout workshops. The plenary sessions will be led by thought-provoking keynote speakers including U.S. experts and our own commercial officers based in North America, to give you the inside track to success.

The breakout sessions give you the chance to hear from experts who are here to help you on topics including: developing your U.S. strategy, how to set up in the U.S., what you need to think about with regards to visa’s, taxes, I.P. and PR. They will also be sessions examining how to conduct successful market research and maximise the opportunities U.S. e-commerce platforms provide. 

There will also be the chance to ask further questions, share your own experiences, challenges and successes and hear from others at the conference during the networking periods.

Our aspiration is for you to feel spoilt for choice. However, the key aim will be to highlight the key opportunities and signpost you to the support available from DIT and the many specialist partners on hand to help make exporting to the U.S. for the first time or if you are looking to grow your existing business.
