Businesses are invited to the Midlands Engine Trade Summit at The Vox, Birmingham on Thursday 9 March.

The UK Government’s 2015 manifesto committed to make ‘the Midlands an engine of growth’. The Midlands Engine is the long-term economic plan to achieve greater economic growth and productivity across the whole of the Midlands. The Department for International Trade (DIT) fully supports this aspiration and is funding this International Trade Summit to help businesses gain an understanding of how the Midlands Engine can support your international business growth. As well as attending informative keynote addresses, delegates can choose to attend a variety of topical workshops and meet, on a one to one basis, with international trade and market experts.
