Basics of Exporting Webinar by CPA

Are you thinking of exporting your products, but don’t know how? Already exporting, but want to build up your knowledge? The Construction Products Association has organised a free webinar on 6th February, designed to answer your questions.

Titled “Basics of Exporting”, this webinar is intended to clear away some of the mystery and uncertainty which surrounds international trade, and to encourage more companies to start exporting, or to grow their overseas business. Guest speakers will include Dr Malcolm Cohen, a Construction Sector specialist at UK Trade & Investment, the government’s export promotion division, and Adam Turk, Commercial Director of Polypipe Terrain Ltd. These experts will offer the benefit of their export knowledge and experience, available from the comfort and convenience of your own desk.

The event will cover a range of topics, including:

  • “Are you Ready to Export”
  • “Looking at Overseas Markets”
  • “Practical Matters – Getting Paid, Customs and Regulations, Legal Issues and Shipping the Goods”

The webinar is free of charge to attend, and will take place on Thursday 6th February, from 14.30 – 15.30 hours. To take part, companies will need to have access to the internet, plus either a VOIP connection or access to telephone if you wish to ask questions.
