Around the World in 80 markets: The secrets of international trade

Fri Sep 21, 2018, 2:00 - 4:30 PM (BST)
ACCA Global, 110 Queen St, Glasgow  

The secrets of international trade – find out what only the locals know about trading internationally.

An expert session brought to you by ACCA

ACCA’s Market Director Julie Hotchkiss and Head of ACCA Scotland Craig Vickery take you on a world tour, featuring contributions from countries across ACCA’s member network.

In a post-Brexit world, international networks become even more crucial to the success of business exporting. Find out about market conditions from the local experts and from people who have used this knowledge to expand overseas.

What is the one thing people need to know about doing business with each country? What surprises people when they move country? What’s the biggest exporting mistake you can make? We’ll be answering these questions and more.

We will hear tips for success, and warn you of the potential pitfalls before they appear. We will also hear why ACCA thinks Scotland is a great base for exporting.

Lively, fun and interactive, this event will leave you inspired to get back into work on Monday morning!
