West Midlands aerospace companies seeking to boost their export business are being invited to take advantage of an opportunity to meet top international buyers.
UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) is organising Aerospace Opportunities 2011, a Meet the Buyer event taking place at CentreLink House, Delcam, Birmingham next month to encourage business.
The event takes place on Wednesday March 2 from 9am to 5pm.
Lord Green, Minister for Trade and Investment, will be attending the event as part of his first official visit to the West Midlands.
More than 20 buyers from across the world will be at the event to do business with West Midlands companies.
UKTI’s international cluster co-ordinator for aerospace in the West Midlands, Matt Clive, said: “This is the perfect opportunity for aerospace companies from the region to meet top quality international buyers face to face.
“Holding the Meet the Buyer event in Birmingham means they don’t have to travel overseas, saving them a huge amount of time and money, and we will be on hand throughout to advise and assist them.
“Any company in this sector is welcome to join the event and I’d urge them to register their interest as soon as possible.”
The event is being run in partnership with the Midlands Aerospace Alliance and the Enterprise Europe Network.
There is still time for West Midlands companies to join Aerospace Opportunities 2011. For further information and to register, please visit the website www.aerospaceopportunities2011.co.uk
