Details

Following on from our previous International Trade Forum in February, we are delighted to announce our next event will take place on the 29th June 2017 with the theme of International Connectivity.

OPPORTUNITY TO WIN TWO BUSINESS CLASS FLIGHT TICKETS WITH TURKISH AIRLINES**

The Forum is kindly sponsored by Turkish Airlines and Manchester Airport Group and will discuss how the airport transformation is increasing international connectivity and enhancing trade. Air transport helps to generate trade, promote tourism and create employment. Increased international connectivity helps to facilitate logistics and moving goods, as well as transporting business passengers.

According to the Oxford Economics, businesses place a huge emphasis on good air links when choosing a country to do business with, as well as air transport services and the location.

Along with Manchester Airport, Turkish Airlines will also be discussing their SME corporate club and how this offers better value for companies doing business overseas. Come along to our Trade Forum to learn how the growth of Manchester Airport is bringing great opportunities for international business to North West companies.

Representatives from the Italian Chamber of Commerce and the China-Britain Business Council will also be present at the event.
