Discussing opportunities for businesses in Essex at the Brexit & Global Expansion Summit

Conference audienceThe UK's decision to leave the European Union took many by surprise and signalled the beginning of dynamic changes in the business world. It impacts not only the UK and the European Union, but the global economy in general, as it raises new challenges and opportunities for companies, expanding their businesses abroad.

The Brexit & Global Expansion Summit event in London 16-18 October will explore all of these questions and give visitors access to valuable market intelligence in times when being well-informed is more important than ever.

“Now is the time for a pragmatic discussion about Brexit, including its wide-ranging implications and impact on corporate strategic planning. Brexit & Global Expansion Summit brings together a community of influential executives to bridge the gap between corporate and government leaders and to make a difference in the overall investment climate.” 

Fernando Faria, Founder and Managing Director of Brexit & Global Expansion Summit
