British American Business is delighted to support the North America Roadshow which begins today. Organised by the Department for Business and Trade the Roadshow will visit 12 UK cities in 12 days to help British businesses up and down the country increase their exports to North America.


CEO of BritishAmerican Business, Duncan Edwards, said:


“The roadshow reflects the continued importance of the US as a destination for British companies and products. 


“The US is the UK’s largest export market and offers a wealth of opportunity to UK companies of all sizes, across all sectors. 


“With the USA, you get 50 countries in one but it’s also important to recognise that each state requires careful research and consideration. Doing business in New York is very different to doing business in say Ohio, Texas or California.  


“That is why this roadshow is a great first step for any business embarking on transatlantic growth.” 


His Majesty’s Trade Commissioner for North America, Emma Wade-Smith, said: 


“The USA and Canada are large and expansive markets offering a wide variety of opportunities for businesses aspiring to export their products and services outside of the UK. 


“My team and I look forward to meeting the talented UK companies who are ready to begin their export journey and to giving them the tools, insights and practical guidance they need to take those next steps.” 


The events will be held London, Cambridge, Bristol, Birmingham, Cardiff, Nottingham, Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Glasgow.


Each roadshow will be tailored to the business landscape in each city and include deep dive sessions on key growth opportunities in a range of sectors including finance and technology, creative industries, transport, space and more.


Practical advice be provided by legal, banking, tax and procurement experts.
