UAE Trade Lunch – Thursday 5th October 2017

Joe Hepworth – 29 Sep, 2017 – Middle East perspective

OCO are hosting a free, informal lunch and networking opportunity on Thursday 5th October, discussing immediate and post-Brexit trade opportunities in the Gulf markets. This invite has been extended to a number of like minded companies and is sponsored by The British Centres for Business (BCB) based in the UAE and OCO Global, the UK’s leading trade and foreign investment consultancy.

BCB is the UK government’s exclusive trade consultancy partner for the region. Our Middle East Director, Joe Hepworth will be there in person to share his perspectives and experience on the opportunities in the region and how to access them.

As the UK’s 4th largest export market outside the EU, the UAE is a market of scale in its own right and acts as the commercial doorway to the wider MENA area. The opportunities for British businesses in the coming years will be significant whether manufacturing, services or technology. Each company who attends will be offered a free assessment of the opportunities that could be available to their specific business in the region.

Beginning with a short presentation, the lunch will take place at:

Leeds United Football Ground, Legends Lounge at Elland Road
Thursday 5th October
11.30 pm – 2.30pm

Spaces are limited and tickets will be allocated on a first come first served basis. As an added incentive, for those who are interested, a Leeds United legend will give attendees a short tour of the stadium and dressing rooms.

We’d be delighted if you could join us.
