Partners for trade, export and investment

techUK works with a number of partners to provide a full trade and export programme, valuable to its members and the wider ICT community. Listed below are a number of organisations that we work in collaboration with which can assist you in your international business.


In March 2013 DIT announced 99 DIT Trade Challenge Partners. These Partners are drawn from Trade Associations, Accredited Trade Organisations and other membership organisations focused on overseas trade, and represent virtually all sectors and industries of the UK economy.  techUK is an approved Accredited Trade Organisation for the Department for International Trade. Some headlines about this group of Partners include:

  • The collective membership of the 99 DIT Trade Challenge Partners is around 70,000
  • On average it is estimated that 40% of these are already doing business internationally, with the potential for a further 20% to do so (that would equal 14,500 more exporters) they reach out into their industry through a range of partnerships, affiliations and federations.
