Doing Business in the USA

  • Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce Elliot House, 151 Deansgate, Manchester M3 3WD (map)

The US is the worlds largest consumer markets and Britain's largest single export market making it a fascinating and diverse place for UK exporters. Traditionally the UK has enjoyed a good reputation for quality for US manufacturers sourcing components overseas.

Key opportunities for UK businesses lie in food and drink, life sciences, pharmaceutical, health equipment, clean technology, energy and power, advanced engineering, creative and media and professional services.

During the seminar you will hear from Avitus Group who will offer 12 steps to help you enter the US market, establish your business and operate successfully. A panel of expert speakers will ensure you gain an understanding of American Government Agencies, workers and consumers covering route to market, intellectual property, finance, visa and immigration.

Who should attend this event?

Companies who are looking to expand to the USA. Please note that exporters and companies interested in expansion will be given priority over service providers.

Service provider’s registrations will be confirmed a week before the event.
