High Peak Conservative MP Andrew Bingham is aiming to help local businesses next month, by hosting a 'Business Export Seminar' to give help and encouragement to local businesses that wish to start exporting.
Organised in association with UK Trade & Investment (UKTI), the Business Export Seminar is free to attend and will be held at Chapel-en-le-Frith Golf Club on Wednesday 19 September from 9am – 1pm, to include a buffet lunch.
The 4 hour programme will include a speaker from UKTI and the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire Chamber of Commerce, as well as stalls at the event from various organisations including the Federation of Small Businesses.
Speaking about the event, Andrew said:
“I'm delighted to be hosting this event to encourage exporting, and I'm very grateful to UKTI for agreeing to help organise it.
“We have a lot of enterprising and innovative small businesses in the High Peak, many of whom may wish to start exporting, but don't know where to start. The idea behind this event is to help them get started, to point them in the right direction and provide them with any information they need.
“I recognise that for small businesses time is very precious, so I’m trying to put together the strongest programme of speakers and attendees that I can, so that businesses will really get something out of the event and feel that it is worth their time attending.”
Andrew's Business Export Day follows on from two successful events held last year, his 'Small Business Day' which he hosted in Buxton, for which he won the Total Politics 'MP of the Month' award, and his 'Funding Information Day' for charities, which was held in Glossop.
