Exporting advice and expertise from Warrant Group at the International Festival for Business this summer delivered positive results for businesses looking to grow their sales overseas.
Almost 100 businesses engaged with the Liverpool and Sefton Chamber of Commerce after Warrant Group was among four international strategic partners providing support and sharing knowledge about exporting at the chamber's flagship IFB event in June.
More than 250 delegates met with representatives from over 30 international markets for discussions and one-to-one meetings at the 'Meet Your Global Business Network' trade conference and gala dinner.
Warrant Group was among four international strategic partners including Santander, Turkish Airlines and DLA Piper. It also invited its collaborative partner, global business consultants, Think Global Growth, to attend.
Richard Daly, Director of Business Development at the Liverpool and Sefton Chamber of Commerce, said: "Since IFB 2016 nearly 100 businesses have engaged with the Chamber about accessing support to assist them in entering new markets and growing their export sales.
"This was due to the support and confidence given to them by Warrant Group, our other international strategic partners and our overseas business network from the Middle East, South East Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, Africa, Latin America and India."
More than 26,000 delegates from all over the world attended the three-week IFB 2016. An impressive 80 events took place including exhibitions, seminars, networking events and inspirational speakers.
Ian Jones, Managing Director of Warrant Group, said an Export Guide produced especially for the event and packed with information about key topics was well received by delegates.
"We were delighted to take part in the Liverpool and Sefton Chamber's Meet Your Global Business Network trade conference. It was great to meet with businesses face-to-face and to understand their concerns about exporting but most importantly to help break down barriers that companies think may exist when it comes to trading internationally.
"We took part in panel discussions and one-to-one meetings as well as providing information that people could take away with them and digest.
"As a business, our core strength is the SME market which presents a huge opportunity to collaborate and deliver valued added services. By offering strategic multimodal solutions combined with supply chain excellence, we can help companies maximise opportunities overseas, boost their competitiveness and deliver innovation."
