Events > Europe Trade Month

A month of activity all about doing business in Europe.



This virtual trade tour of Europe will excite, inspire, and equip UK businesses for success in the region.  

Our partners and teams in over 30 countries have pulled together an exciting programme of informative and interactive sessions to help you sell your goods or services throughout Europe.

Through market briefings, sector deep dives, local experts and much more, we will showcase opportunities, trends and pinpoint the many levels of government support available. 

We will help businesses from all corners of the UK succeed, thrive and grow across Europe. 

Europe Trade Month is proud to support the UK’s first ever International Trade Week taking place 15 – 19 November 2021. The week offers a series of exciting events to help businesses learn more about selling globally and connect with trade industry experts.

We are continuing to support businesses across the whole of the UK, to unlock trading opportunities with Europe by giving them the guidance and the platform to successfully export their products and services across the continent.

Trade your Way to Growth 

The most innovative and profitable businesses are those with an international footprint and the different markets covered by DIT teams in Europe, ranging from Iceland to Israel, are a great place to start or grow your export journey.

We’ll kick off the month with a Keynote from Her Majesty’s Trade Commissioner Chris Barton. 

Other sessions will include updates on different European markets, information on new trade agreements, practical advice from legal, banking and tax experts, and sector and region-specific opportunities for UK exporters. 

Spread-out session and a wide variety of subjects means you can tailor your month’s programme to meet your company’s needs.
