IOE to host exclusive World Trade Summit on 12 October

The IOE is hosting an exclusive World Trade Summit 2016 entitled The Commonwealth & Beyond on 12 October, which includes a powerful line up of industry specialist and experts including keynote speaker Lord Marland, Chairman of the Commonwealth Enterprise and Investment Council – and former government Trade Envoy.

Focussing on the new and ever changing business environment, the Institute is seeking to bring the now vital skills agenda to the fore by engaging with business and government in shaping the future of international trade.

Bringing together thought leadership from a powerful line-up organisations including UKEF, Barclays and AIG., the Summit at Gresham College will explore some of the opportunities that are available to British business in  ‘Where next?’ – and on the great things that are already happening.

IOE Director General, Lesley Batchelor OBE said: “This is a new and interesting time for businesses working in international trade and our World Trade Summit promises a packed agenda with something of interest for all attendees by providing informed debate that will ensure that exporters’ voices – large or small – are heard.

“We have brought together a line-up of high-calibre speakers and we relish the opportunity of welcoming our members and the wider business community who are working in international trade to this showcase forum.”
