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.
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.
For 30 years Tradefair has been managing an extensive programme of supported overseas exhibitions on behalf of techUK and in partnership with the Department for International Trade (DIT). Our focus is on those events which have proven to be the most successful in generating quality international business for the UK tech sector. We have built a massive in-house knowledge of local conditions, operating requirements and have established a unique network of professional service providers who are specifically chosen and monitored to meet Tradefair's superior standards. Through our relationships with event organisers we are able to buy premium space and offer full logistical support including freight and travel. Click here for more information.
DIT works with UK based businesses to ensure their success in international markets through exports. We encourage and support overseas companies to look at the UK as the best place to set up or expand their business.
They have professional advisers around the UK and staff across more than 100 countries and their headquarters are in London. They are responsible for international trade and investment, helping UK companies achieve their potential overseas through exporting and encouraging investment in the UK by overseas businesses.
