UKTI Selling your Products & Services to Global Aid Organisations

Date: 24th June 2016

Location: IFB 2016, Exhibition Centre, Liverpool

UK Trade & Investment’s Global Aid and Development team are hosting a free one-day event during IFB2016 that will help UK companies learn how to sell their products and services to global aid organisations.

Why should I attend?

Multilateral agencies (such as the UN, World Bank etc.) spend $60 billion every year on everything from tents to telecommunications. But you need to know - and be known by - the right people, in the right places, to break into this market. Selling your Products and Services to Global Aid Organisations will help UK companies to identify business opportunities from projects and programmes funded by international organisations in the aid funded market place, and better understand how to successfully secure contracts.

What are the opportunities?

The aid funded sector presents a wealth of exporting opportunities, with over 180 global business opportunities currently listed on the Exporting Is GREAT website. There are current opportunities for most business sectors – please click on the links for some live examples in education and training, energy and agriculture.
