The UKTi ‘Exporting is GREAT’ Hub Truck is returning to Yorkshire!

Our mission is to turn the UK into the world’s greatest exporting nation, and we have more opportunities and expert advice to offer, helping your business to achieve global success. You can register your interest in live export opportunities, access support to export, attend seminars and book one to one mentoring sessions with our experts and partners including Microsoft and Google.

The Hub Truck will be returning to Yorkshire at the end of January, visiting both Bradford and Leeds on back-to-back days. Pre-bookable one-to-one sessions are available with International Trade Advisers and Export Experts throughout both days. On Thursday you will be able to pre-book exclusive one-to-one meetings with Microsoft and on Friday experts from Google and Microsoft will be available to support you with advice tailored to your business.
