Export event for local businesses

Businesses in Blackburn with Darwen are being invited to go global at a free event.

Blackburn with Darwen Council has joined forces with the East Lancashire Chamber of Commerce and No Limits to provide advice and guidance to businesses about expanding sales through export.

Councillor Alan Cottam, executive member for regeneration and environment, said: “We have some world class companies but they may not consider exporting. This event aims to take some of the mystery out of the business of international trade.

"With the exchange rate currently to our advantage, and likely to remain that way for some time, now is a great time to consider exporting."

The event takes place at Blackburn Town Hall on Friday March 26 starting at 10am, and finishing with lunch at 12.30pm.

Sessions will look at understanding international markets, pricing and delivery, while one local company will talk about its experiences of exporting.

To reserve a free place, contact Marie White on (01254) 356448 or email
